7 Awesome Examples Of Tiny Homes That Fit Big Families

Who says you can’t live in a tiny house with a family? These pint-sized homes prove it’s possible to live comfortably in fewer square feet, even with children.

Macy Miller of MiniMotives started building her tiny home before she knew she’d be sharing it with a family. During the process she met her partner, James, who helped her complete the house. They’ve since welcomed two children — plus a Great Dane! — and expanded the home from its initial size of 196 square feet to 232 square feet with the addition of a bedroom. Reclaimed wood counter tops, a composting toilet and radiant floor heating are among the sustainable features of this cozy space.

They wanted to avoid a shotgun house feel, so they designed an L-shaped kitchen to create a natural barrier between the living area and bedrooms. Big windows fill the bus with natural light.
