Less is more, right? But is it possible to live in just 147 square feet?

Frank Henderson and Paul Schultz--the Chicago-based creators of the Toybox Tiny Home--say yes, and they’re out to prove it by finishing construction on the adorable dwelling they designed to be the ideal place for peace, simplicity, happiness and recreation. Take a peek at their creation.

If you donate $250, you’ll get a custom birdhouse made from the leftover materials, and for $750, you’ll get a copy of the plans so you can build your own Toybox Tiny Home.
