What is a Micro Home?
A micro home is simply a small but fully functioning home, often designed with space efficiency and environmental friendliness in mind. How small? Though a typical micro home footprint is under 500 square feet, there are no rules. Many micro home designs include lofts and incorporate vertical design elements to maximize space. The design of a micro home can vary greatly to match a location's climate, builder's aesthetic, or intended use of the space. In addition to being built as primary residences, micro homes make great vacation homes, studios, and guest houses.
