I first came across the micro home phenomenon a few years ago as the green/minimal/humble movement began. I do have a tendency to try to simplify my life and cut down to the essentials. It's always important to remember that we can live very fulfilling lives with so little. One of the first micro home projects was the "Micro Compact Home". The homes were prototyped and trialed by students attending TU Munich in 2005. It seems as though every feature inside the home has multiple uses, with good reason, the home is but a mere 78 sq ft (22 sq meters).
