I love this site but almost can’t stand to subscribe anymore because it makes me want to downgrade so badly! 🙂 Our house is around 1400-1500 square feet, so it’s not huge, but I need to learn to live with that! 🙂

Great post! Its funny how the number one is eerily similar to my tiny house. But mine is on a trailer and is a little bigger (longer). But its basically identical with the flat roof and unusual windows LOL. Again GREAT post. My personal favorite is the one that looks like Bilbo Baggins’s house from Lord of the rings (#4 Simon’s Eco House) which uses (very) many natural elements , its simply beautiful .
