Last weekend we asked our Facebook community to share stories and photos of their tiny homes. The stories were varied, and everyone had their own reasons for choosing to downsize and try this lifestyle on for size, but one thing held true for all: They love their tiny spaces!

From traditional, modular tiny homes to small houses with a plot of land for gardening, teepees to houseboats, our readers know how to live large in small spaces.

Tiny Empty Nest

Name: MJ Boyle
Location: Oregon
Square Footage: 196

After helping design and supervising the construction of two full-sized homes earlier in life, MJ Boyle decided that once her youngest headed off to college she would build a space all her own. In March of 2014 she officially settled on the mission of building a tiny home.

“Nothing is life goes according to plan.” Boyle says this is one thing she’s learned in all her years on this great green Earth. Luckily, a tiny home can often go wherever life sees fit to send us and this is part of the appeal. After acquiring a sponsor and designing her own 196-square-foot home, Boyle set to downsizing. Her journey is still in progress, but she’s well on her way to having the home of her dreams. Keep up with her progress on her blog.
