Over the decades, houses have generally been getting bigger in the U.S. Back in 2015, though, according to the Census Bureau, lot sizes peaked at an average of 2,689 square feet. Since then, homes have been getting smaller – and a trend for space-saving dwellings has taken off.

As of 2017, the average size of a single-family home in the U.S. had fallen to around 2,599 square feet. Indeed, the “tiny house movement” has been gaining traction, with more and more people opting to live in dwellings of less than 1,000 square foot. However, for a home to truly be defined as being tiny, it’s generally agreed that it has to be under 400 square foot.
