Tiny Homes, Big Ideas
The great room in Jay's 96-square-foot house
Just because you live in a small space doesn't mean you can't incorporate big style into your home.

Jay Shafer, founder of the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, says living small is a luxury—and when he says living small, he means it. Jay's entire house is only 96 square feet! "It's the smallest house we've ever seen," Oprah says.

The first stop in Jay's house tour is the main living area—which he calls the "great room." According to Jay, there's plenty of space for all his belongings. "This place has more storage per square foot than most houses would," he says.

Jay's main living area is packed full of amenities that make him more comfortable—including a tiny fireplace! Another bonus—his commute from home to office is just inches away. Jay has a desk where he can sit and get his work done. And, if Jay wants to entertain, he says his "great room" fits four people comfortably.
