In researching definitions for Tiny Homes I have found little in the way of "standardizing definitions" ...so here I would like to suggest these groups as a way to standard thinking about tiny home sizes. Not to homogonize anyones ideas, but a way to standardize reference points. This should aid in discussion and clarity as the modern Tiny House Revolution explodes!




  • Micro House: under 200 sf

  • Tiny House: under 500 sf

  • Sensible House: under 1,000 sf

  • Common size 'til mid 1990's: 1,000-2,000 sf

  • Average Current House: 2,000-3,000 sf

  • McMansion House:  over 3,000 sf (just don't)
