In recent years, many people have chosen to live in tiny homes for a number of practical reasons – to lessen their financial burdens, to reduce their environmental footprint, and to achieve more time and freedom for adventures.
While living in a tiny home meant sacrificing some of the liberties of residing in a regular-sized abode, this one from Olive Nest Tiny Homes provides extra space for those with a specific type of passion – gardening.
Nicknamed The Elsa, this tiny house measures 323 square feet, but its light-colored design and the optimal use of space give the illusion that it’s more spacious than it really is. But what makes this mobile home really special is the greenhouse. It’s 85 square feet in size, just enough to grow your favorite plants. If you’re in the mood for some fresh air, The Elsa is also equipped with a porch where you can relax.
