For a long time in America, the dominant mentality was always “bigger is better.” Finally, “small is beautiful” is having its moment. Tiny houses offer a viable solution for people looking to reduce theirenvironmental impact and live more simply.

“Micro-living,” as its proponents call it, is becoming increasingly popular. Tiny houses are even being touted as an affordable way to house the homeless. And nothing says these homes have to be boring and ugly. Don’t believe me? Check out these 10 beautiful tiny houses:

1. This tiny house, the “Wedge,” is designed and built by Wheelhaus. The “Wedge” features an angled roof which starts low in the bedroom and builds to 17 feet in the living room. The front is almost entirely glass, which gives the house an open feeling with plenty of natural light. The starting price is $89,000.

2. Don’t have that kind of money to drop? No problem! Macy Miller is just one of the many tiny homeowners who built her own house. It took two years, in which she broke her foot and her back, but also met her future husband (quite the rollercoaster!). It’s portable and it only cost her $11,000.

3. Take a video tour of Steve Areen’s “Dome Home.” He made his tiny house out of mostly natural materials for $9,000 on a mango farm in northeast Thailand. He was offered the space to build it by a friend, the materials were relatively inexpensive and he didn’t have to worry about insulating for cold temperatures. The house features a hammock, a pond and plenty of tropical plants.
