When I was living in my Winnebago in Washington DC, I realized just how little space we actually need to live well. I could cook lentils, take a shower, sleep, and store all of my things in a vehicle that fit into a standard parking space.

Jay Shafer is one of the founders of of the tiny-house movement and is fascinating to read about and watch online. His entire home (and it looks and feels exactly like a home) fits on top of a car trailer, and so can be hauled around behind a pickup truck. Inside he has a fireplace, double-burner stove, fridge, bar sink, and toaster oven. His bed is a loft over the top of his kitchen, and he has a tiny closet to hold his clothes.

The entire space is less than 100 sq. ft.

I am blown away every single time I watch this video, and would love to know how many people out there would be willing to live in such a tiny home themselves.
