Designer Lisa Furey's challenge for the home above was to design and build a 690-square-foot low-country cottage that would include a kitchen, laundry area, bedroom and workspace as well as outdoor space. Board and batten siding, a standing seam metal roof and board and batten composite shutters — all weather-proof choices — give the exterior a farmhouse feel.
The top floor of this floating home designed by Robert Nebolon includes the public areas of the home (living room, kitchen and dining room) and is sheathed in a white metal siding. The lower-level bedrooms are sheathed in a blue metal siding, and the roof shape is reminiscent of sails on a ship.
This 370-square-foot Texas home created in an old trailer is designed to embrace outdoor entertaining. Kim Lewis selected fun colors and whimsical accents to completely transform the trailer.
Designer Lori Rourk recovered existing furniture that was previously dark and drab and repositioned a bed (just out of site to the right of the sofa) to create a comfortable, coastal vibe in this tiny studio space.
William C. Johnson proves you can pack a lot of style in a tiny Airstream trailer. In addition to this chic banquette, this Airstream includes a mini kitchen with refrigerator, two sleeping bays and a bathroom, all designed with the same pleasing, neutral patterns and finishes.
Paige Morse packed a complete living space -- kitchen, bed, bathroom and lounging area -- into this tiny cabin. Black siding trimmed in white make the building pop against the natural background.
This 600-square-foot house explores a geometric solution to create luxury with a minimum footprint. Through light and shapes, Bates Masi + Architects expanded the perception of space.
Having a small home does not mean having to sacrifice space or add clutter. Jordan Parnass created a clever wall of built-ins in this home, which conceal a workspace, dining room table, musical instruments and the door to the master suite.
This small, rustic living space from Jonas DiCaprio once served as a blacksmith's shop. The home now features midcentury cabinets, repurposed barn doors, and a hay loft that's seeing new life as a bedroom.
This backyard studio office from Mike Speciale and Kimber Reed packs enough function both inside the building and surrounding it to feel like a fully-fledged work and meeting space.
Designed to invoke the look of Napa Valley, Calif. bungalows, this small home designed by Lindsay Chambers packs a lot of style with clever space-planning and a cohesive color palette.
This tiny cabin, designed by Dan Dobrowolski and Kelly Davis, is small enough to meet the size requirements of a luxury RV. It makes the most of its 400 square feet and includes a screened porch.
This Asian-themed small white home from Kevin Keim and Adam Gates includes a sleeping loft, a Murphy-style dining table, and a stair-stepped kitchenette modeled after a Japanese Tansu chest.
