Macy Miller is an architect from Idaho that had a BIG dream about a tiny house. She had always wanted a place of her own, but the thought of a mortgage sickened her after she lost her home to foreclosure after getting divorced. So, her dream revolved around building a compact, but beautiful home. For two years, Macy worked on the 196 square-foot home, dedicating her free time to building the small paradise. Finally, construction has finished on her little hideaway... and it's hard not to be jealous of this place, no matter how small it looks on the outside. After all, it only cost about $11,000.

Macy Miller didn't have a lot of experience with construction, but she was willing to learn.
