The Tiny House Movement has surpassed being a “fad.” It is now a full-on way of life for millions of Americans.

Actually, not just Americans — people all over the world are living simpler, greener lives with less debt by moving into homes that are chic but economical. The houses might be small on space, but they require big ideas.

A Vancouver resident recently posted some beautiful photos of her new tiny house on the photo-sharing website Imgur. The amazing house has enough room for her and her two cats. And though the square footage is limited, the space is anything but.

Her tiny house, which she has named “Thousand Crows,” is a testament to how much can be done in such a tiny space. It was built by John McFarlane of Camera Buildings. I look at this and think of how perfect it is for college students, bachelor pads, and vacations homes — but it’s also great for everyday living!

Thousand Crows was completed on November 10th, 2014.
