We heard about the trend to build McMansions, huge house that have far more space than the occupants could possibly need. An opposite trend is to build what are called microhouses, tiny living spaces that try to utilize every bit of space efficiently. Some of them are ingenious in their design and quite beautiful

I like to think that I don’t have much stuff but looking at these houses, I just don’t see how I can fit in what I think I need. Of course, I realize that this is an indulgence for the affluent where what we consider minimal requirements are actually luxuries. Billions of people are forced to live in extremely small spaces and manage it because they have no choice.
