This Couple Condensed Their Lives Into A 140-Square-Foot ‘Tiny House’
Most couples who live together know that they can get on each others’ nerves sometimes. Now imagine a situation where you and your partner are living together in just 140 square feet.
It’s not for everyone, but Chris and Malissa Tack have made it work. They gave up their high-tech lives in 2011 and condensed their world into a “tiny house” in the town of Snohomish, Wash.
The Tacks say that living in such close quarters has actually made them more courteous to one another, they told the Huffington Post.
Chris now works as a photographer and Malissa as a freelance 3D artist. The couple shared some photos of their tiny living space, which they designed themselves.
The sleeping loft fits a queen-sized bed, and more shelving and cabinets on either side in lieu of night tables.
This is the view of the first floor of the house from the sleeping loft.It doesn’t look so small from up top.The ceilings are pretty high, giving the appearance of more space.
