Tiny homes are one of the biggest crazes in the last couple of years. These ingenious living spaces may not have that much room, but their designs and layouts are made so that everything fits in perfectly without having to sacrifice many things.

Great Design Ideas for Tiny Yards

Buying a home is very exciting yet it requires some compromises. Normally, your budget will determine the size and the type of home you’ll be able to afford. This might mean that you will have to choose a home with only one garage, or a home with a small backyard instead of a large one.

About Me
I've lived rent-free in micro/odd living spaces since 2012 and have been writing about downsizing since moving into my office, voluntary simplicity from the perspective of a young professional. My writing has appeared in Salon, Yahoo! Finance, Business Insider, L.A. Weekly, MSN, and The Good Men Project. My work focuses largely on humanizing small-space lifestyle choices for the general public, emphasizing the oft-confused distinction between involuntary poverty and an emerging “home-free” lifestyle of intentional simplicity. I have also discussed the topic at length in interviews for CBS, Fusion TV, WGN Radio, Business Punk Magazine, The Penny Pincher, and W Radio’s La W. Additionally, Terry is in the advanced stages of both memoir and screen manifestations of his experience.
