Macy Miller, a Boise, Idaho-based architect, has built herself an amazing 196-square-foot home. After an extensive foreclosure settlement on her previous 2,500 square-foot home, Miller decided to spend $11,500 to construct her new “tiny home” on the back of a flatbed trailer.

Her micro home is fully functional with a power grid and potable water. She even has an environmentally-friendly composting toilet that uses sawdust instead of water.

Miller lives with her Great Dane and completely owns her new small house, only having to pay rent for the real estate. The next big step for Miller will be to reconfigure her 196-square-foot space for another resident. She’s pregnant and due in March.
