In December 2011, [Macy Miller](http://minimotives.com/) had the idea to live ‘tiny,’ and set out to fulfill her dream by building her own home. The entire process took about 18 months, and involved a 196-square-foot space. She estimates the tiny house only cost $10-12k! How’s that for inspiration? If you’re interested, she has a 50-page ebook on her site which contains the plans, layout, full materials, and much more.
