Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to live in 500 square foot home? In fact many people in the world live in small spaces however in America we have been accustomed to our average 3,000 square foot home. But with that space, comes a cost not only to the home itself but the increase of maintenance, housecleaning and money to maintain and furnish such large spaces.

A small but growing trend is to downsize into smaller living spaces. There have been architects who have designed not only efficient small spaces but very eco-friendly as well.
