This tendency becomes so popular that it is now called ‘the tiny house movement.’ It is the social movement that advocates living simply in small homes. If a typical American house is about 240 square meters (2,600 square feet), then the typical tiny house is between 10 and 40 square meters (100 and 400 square feet).
The stunning tiny cabin of 35 square meters (376 square feet) is located on the edge of the Åkrafjorden fjord in western Norway.

Using shipping containers as something other than cargo carriers is a very popular idea these days. They are perfect for temporary facility like, for example, vacation rentals.
