While you’ll be hard-pressed to find many municipalities allowing foundation homes under 400 square feet, more and more communities are accepting in-law apartments and ADUs that allow members of the same family to live on the same property. These duplex plans could be a great way to give in-laws or kids their own space while still keeping a small footprint.

This design has two mirror-image tiny homes glued together to look like a single-family dwelling. Each 340 square foot side has a living room, kitchen, bathroom, downstairs bedroom, and upper loft. The homes are sleek and modern, with plenty of windows for natural light. Would this setup work for you?

Wess had the travel bug as a young adult but chose parenthood first. When his boys were getting older, he decided to think about tiny living/travel again and that’s when he stumbled across the school bus that he bought to turn into a house (before they were really Instagram-popular). As a metalworker, he had the skills necessary to build a school bus just how he wanted — and he did!

He spent three years on the road traveling in his conversion before settling in Witchita where he does metalwork for other people’s rigs. His home includes an awesome collection of found-item artwork, a mosaic tub, and tons of beautiful woodworking. Enjoy the tour!

When ADUs became legal in a small Central Kentucky town, Janet and her son/daughter-in-law saw a great opportunity! The son and daughter-in-law own the land and larger home, and Janet lives nearby with her grandkids in a backyard cottage. It’s 320 sq. ft. with no wheels and was built by a local traditional builder.

Minus the deck her son built later, the cost for the home came in at $60,000. She furnished it with compact IKEA furniture with hidden storage and has a garden shed as well.

This is one super cute little 107 sq. ft. cabin tucked into the towering trees of Fernwood Hills in Ontario. About half of the wall space in the cabin is windows, allowing for tons of refreshing, natural light.

It began as just a daytime retreat where people come to be alone with their thoughts or to write or meditate, but after they got enough interest, the owners put it up as an overnight retreat. Take a look and tell us what you think!

Josh watched his parents travel the continent with this 1954 Crown Bus which he bought from the family when he turned 15. He lived  in it for some time and then as an adult got the idea to give it a total rehab and continue in his grandpa’s tracks. His then-girlfriend wasn’t too sure about the whole thing, but Carolyn stuck with him through the build and married him — so it all worked out!

Back in 2009 before there were tons of “how to” videos on YouTube, Josh figured out how to raise the roof of his skoolie about 13 inches. They also have a spa-like bathroom, two mini-fridges and plenty of comfort in their vintage rig. Pretty awesome!

Have you seen WWII Quonset Huts before? I wasn’t familiar with them until today! They were used during WWII to house troops or as agricultural buildings, but when the war was over, the goverment sold them to the public.

This one in Southern Illinois is in a college town and sits on 1/4 acre. It could be yours for $79,000 — land included! I think with some sprucing up this could be quite the adorable property. Would you buy it?
