We all think of our home as a place of sanctuary where we relax, take our meals, sleep and also spend time with our family. In recent times, requests however are leaning toward smaller houses and apartments. These new homes spread horizontally rather than expanding the living space vertically. However, the spread to the side can also create space. We introduce to you today 40 such styles of small homes. They all have one thing in common, they are very unique and unusual. With this list, you are sure to find your favorite one!
