This Couple Built Their Own 124-Square-Foot 'Tiny Home'

•, Eric Baldwin
 Christopher Smith and Merete Mueller, a couple out of Colorado, are just one example of people taking the “tiny” leap – they began the construction of their 124 sq ft. home back in 2011, and their journey has been documented in a new film called “TINY: A Story About Living Small,” which premiered on Al Jazeera America last Sunday. 

The Tiny House, only 124 sq ft. (although with an 11-foot ceiling), contains a small galley kitchen, a bathroom and sleeping loft. There is also a small closet, two built-in bookshelves, one built-in desk and a dining table made from the scraps of the reclaimed hardwood flooring. 

Building the house, Smith and Mueller began to realize how living with less can free up time, energy, and money to focus on things that mattered to them. As Smith describes, the characters in the film (all tiny house owners) have started their own businesses, gotten involved in their communities, and spent more time with family and friends as a result of downsizing.

How about this, made of 4x8 sheets of plywood. The horizontal part could be for sleeping, and the vertical part for everything else... except, of course, those other things you would do in the horizontal part.
