MILLERTINYHOUSE 048 EDIT

Boise, Idaho-area  architect Macy Miller traded  her 2,500-square-foot residence for a 196-square-foot home she built herself  after dealing with a long and complex foreclosure settlement.The home she constructed is an impressive example of the burgeoning “tiny house” trend. Miller spent around $11,500 on the home,  which she constructed on the back of a flatbed trailer.She completely owns her home, which she  shares with her partner and dog, and only pays to rent the land it sits on. The  most expensive part was the $2,000  compost toilet that uses little to no water.

Here’s the view of Miller’s 196-square-foot house from  the front door.
