I am always surprised how many home features can fit in 400 sq.ft. - today's visit to the SouthWest MicroLiving show at the Shemer Art Center was no different.

There were 12 micro housing and garden structures on display.

I was able to speak with the builders and artists and to learn more about how one can own a home like the exhibits.

The picture above is the first home I visited. The stairs felt so comfortable and inviting to test them - so I did. And took photos from above - of the living room, kitchen, bedroom.

 

 

The focus on this year's show were the building materials for the tiny homes.

Some of the exhibits showed steel frames and styrofoam, others - wood frame, shipping container shells. 

 

 

 

 

Kitchen and view of the bathroom, finished with corrugated steel panels. The shell is a shipping container, insulated with a special type of surface paint.

Structures ranged from 153 sq.ft. to almost 400 sq.ft., and I saw prices starting at about $17,500 and going up to $79,500.

 

This MicroLiving Show is open till March 11,

Saturdays and Sundays | 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

5005 E Camelback Rd. Phoenix AZ 85018

Endre Barath, Jr. , thanks for stopping by. Because of the stairs, or the size of the space itself?

Thank you very much for sharing information on this very interesting show.

Dolores might think that one of those tiny houses would be ideal for an additonal walk in closet.

Doubt I could live in 400 sq ft - with Bernie, or any other person for that matter, but I sure appreciate the concept fully. Tiny homes are quite fascinating - and love how good ones really utilize space fully.  I'd love to attend one of these expos.
