Wind River Tiny Homes
1. Tiny cedar bungalow's clever storage options make it as functional as a regular-sized home
The owner of the Wind River Bungalow set a goal of being debt free by the age of 30. Whatever money the husband and wife couple would have spent on rent or mortgage for a bigger home was instead put towards paying off school and car loans as well as credit card debt. They accomplished their goal of not owing a cent to anyone while at the same time having a 192-square-foot tiny home that they own 100 percent. The company can also make the bungalow longer if that's the customer's preference. 
One of the biggest benefits that tiny homeowners reap rewards from is the ability to spend more one on one time with nature. Ideally, the best tiny home designs are ones that easily mesh the forest and landscapes with the house itself which is exactly what the Wind River Bungalow accomplishes. Get the full tour here.
Heart of It All House
2. See why couple 'absolutely loves' their tiny home. The wood they used inside is stunning
Trevor Gray and Mary Benasutti of Dayton, Ohio, have built a tiny home that puts an entirely new spin on tiny living. In an interview done by Tiny House Build, Gray revealed that he was first inspired to go tiny by spotting a Facebook post from Jay Shafer. Although Gray was intrigued with the idea of going tiny, the turning point came when he spotted pictures of an elegant tiny home by hOMe. Gray and Benasutti became the first customers for hOMe plans and built most of their tiny home themselves.
Gray and Benasutti's home rests on a piece of Gray's parents' property, so they get to enjoy a beautiful rural setting which beautifully compliments the style of their home. At a total cost of $33,000, their tiny palace on wheels is a place that they absolutely love to spend time in, and at the price, they aren't slaves to their home. Get the full tour here.

Carpenter Owl
4. Step inside a truly one-of-a-kind tiny home that even makes room for a soaking tub
The Carpenter Owl is a highly individualistic one-man shop out of central Indiana that appears to prove the point that the tiny house movement is all about confronting conformity.
