What is a tiny home? A hundred years ago most people probably would have answered “a doll house.” These days the term “tiny home” conjures up images of young couples trading their 2,000-square-foot houses for a smaller modular home in an effort to reduce their carbon footprint. According to a 2017 Curbed article, “Tiny houses: big future, or big hype?” a tiny home is loosely defined as a dwelling with between 100-400 square feet. For comparison, the legal maximum size of a travel trailer is 400 square feet. In other words, living in a tiny home and camping can present similar problems when it comes to storage.
