Micro Homes: Sometimes Small is Better

As we are starting to feel the effects of overpopulation, rising house costs, environmental deterioration, and over-use of energy in bigger homes, small is actually the better way to go. The best thing about a micro home is that it maximizes space through multi-functional pieces. These transformative homes will wow you in how much they can fit and do. Another benefit to micro homes is that there is less space to maintain and clean, it is also less expensive to build or renovate than a larger home.

Many people prefer spacious luxurious homes, but let me show you how small can also be beautiful, functional, unique, and totally livable.
