Tiny-house owners are often the first to share how living small can simplify your life. After all, it’s a trend for a reason. If simplifying doesn’t have you convinced, consider how much easier it would be to clean a small space, and how much more affordable it would be to heat and cool it. But just how much do these mini houses cost? Find out with these seven tiny houses for sale across the country.
