Jay's bedroom loft

4 of 13
Sleep walkers beware…Jay sleeps in a loft that's only three-and-a-half feet tall. "This tiny house makes my life a lot easier, except when it comes to making a bed," he says.

For Jay, living small is really about personal happiness. "Aside from not needing anything more than this, I really like the idea of putting what I do have into quality over quantity," he says. "Living small is really a luxury in the sense that I have a lot of time now that I didn't have before. I can focus now on other things I want to do in my life rather than just paying a mortgage and taking care of a house."
