"We really want you to do nothing at all." That's Jon Staff's motto, CEO of Getaway.

Staff was inspired by his experiences living in an Amsterdam trailer and says the small space forced him out into the world.

The first home to be designed and built by Getaway is the Ovida.

It's located about 2 hours outside of Boston somewhere in a secluded forest.

As cute as these awesome little living spaces are you probably won't be spending too much time indoors - there's a grill and campfire outside.
