What’s a Micro-Mansion and Should I Live in One?
It’s adorable, and yes
Have you heard? Mansions are out. Micro-mansions are in. (And so are She Sheds.)
“Wait, but what’s a micro-mansion?” Glad you asked. Here’s the deal.
ESSENTIALLY, IT’S A TEENY TINY HOUSE
Think of it as 800 square feet (or less) of blissful living space, designed to help you save money, cut back on clutter and generally lead a more eco-friendly life.
IT’S TYPICALLY ONE LEVEL
BUT YOU CAN STILL HAVE SEPARATE ROOMS
For those times when you just need some privacy.
YOU CAN GET CREATIVE WITH THE SPACE
Hello, lofted bedroom. We love you.
Or get creative with an outdoor deck
BRB, grilling in the woods.
LOCATION IS EVERYTHING
When the house is small, the real estate options seriously open up.
AND DON’T FORGET ABOUT EXTRA AMENITIES LIKE HOT TUBS
Before you build, research your utility options--you’ll want access to water, power and sewage disposal.
Yes, toilets are included in a micro-mansion. But don’t expect a double vanity.
They make every space better. Promise.
BUILD WITH AN EYE TOWARD SUSTAINABILITY
This Swedish prefab home makes use of a retractable outdoor kitchen (it pulls out from underneath the stairs) to lower its overall carbon footprint.
AND AN AESTHETIC THAT MATCHES YOUR PERSONAL STYLE
Modern + rustic = chic.
AND WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS...PUT IT ON WHEELS
The RV of the future.
