This house re-defines tight quarters. Malissa’s tiny but gorgeous 170 ft. home in Washington won Apartment Therapy’s Small Cool Contest this year. As one of the commenters brilliantly called it: Smallest. Coolest. Winner Winner Chicken Dinner. Marissa lives in her wood-filled house with her husband and their two cats.

Is your favorite home you’ve ever lived in cozy and tight or overflowing with extra floor space and lofty ceilings? After living in a 250 sq. ft. apartment for one year, my husband and I upgraded to an airy one-bedroom. Believe me when I say that even after two years and one addition to the family, we still feel like we live in a palace!

P.S. — More small: firetruck guest house and tiny victorian cottage.
