I think I fell in love with tiny houses even before I read the first article about the movement. It was during my first trip to IKEA years ago, when I witnessed the 250-ish square foot apartment display in their showroom and was like, “Wow. I could do this. I could live here.”
The last few years I’ve devoured articles, countless photos, and even episodes of HGTV’s Tiny House Hunters. More recently I’ve gone so far as to contact RV parks about parking tiny houses year round, search “for sale” sites, and go to my first tiny open house.
But up until recently I had never actually stayed in a tiny house. I decided that had to change.
Below are video tours of each of the three tiny houses in which I stayed. Warning: If you are susceptible to motion sickness, I’m afraid it’s pretty much guaranteed as I swing the camera around looking at different areas and shake it while climbing up and down stairs. The good news is that each video is relatively short.

Now just for fun, watch them again and count the number of times I say words like “cute”, “tiny”, and “adorable”. It’s a lot.
