This cute and cozy house in Oregon is just 540 square feet but seems so open and welcoming. It must be all that white. It belongs to interior designer Jessica Helgerson and her family and is meant to be an experiment in reducing and reusing. The house itself was built in 1940 and nearly everything inside is made from reclaimed materials. Mom and dad sleep in a loft above all those books, and the kids have built-in bunk beds. Drawers store all their toys, in case you're like me and were wondering, "Where's all their stuff?" There's a green roof, and the rest of the property includes a vegetable garden, fruit trees, chickens, bees and a greenhouse that's actually twice the size of their home. It's like a Portlandia paradise.
