Tiny houses typically take the form of a horizontal box or mini gabled shed, but not this one, crafted in Austin by architect and artist Ann Armstrong. With its cedar and aluminum cladding and mildly angled roofline, Armstrong's design looks a bit like a retro camper.
Still, the 230-square-foot home is cleverly designed like the best of tiny houses. Some highlights include a staircase that doubles as storage and a hideout for the A/C, extra headroom and windows above the lofted bed, and a sleek GE Spacemaker undercounter fridge.
