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.
