We’ve seen heaps upon heaps of micro homes crop up with all sorts of eye-popping attributes, whether it’d be glam interiors, wildly low budgets (how does $489 sound?), or major eco-friendly cred. But sometimes, the best tiny house is the one that’s all ready to go, with the floor plan and systems all figured out.
