It’s time to de-clutter your life. That’s the mantra of one Northwest U.S. man who is changing the way home buyers look for new cribs.

Chris Heininge spent years living abroad as a Christian Missionary in Japan, China, Macau, and even India. Staying in these Asian countries through much of his teenage years, Heininge was influenced by the Japanese tradition of simple living: maintaining a lifestyle free of material possessions. He calls it, “tiny living.”

Heininge comes from a long line of “gifted craftsmen, artists, and designers” and while living in Aurora, Oregon, in 1999, Heininge began putting his theory of “tiny living” into practice by building a series of tiny houses. He had noticed the idea of the “McMansion” was fading and people were choosing more modest homes that cost less to build and maintain, and left a smaller carbon footprint on the environment.

Let’s go inside one of Chris’s homes for a tour. It may look tiny on the outside, but on the inside, it’s so much more!

Here’s the Living Room.

In the cabinets by the sink you can install your washer/dryer.

The homes can be built for a mere $70,000. I know, seems pretty steep, but when you consider a full-size home costs about four times as much (in Oregon, at least), that’s quite a bargain. So who’s in?
