Living in a small space isn't restricted to city dwelling. Here are seven pint-size homes situated in far-reaching places.
Eric Logan's guest house is adjacent to his family’s home. The interiors are made up of oiled masonite wall paneling, raw MDF cabinetry, and an oiled concrete floor.

Amidst a breathtaking panoramic view of Washington mountains, this 2,200-square-foot retreat is located in an area where 9,000-square-foot homes are the norm. Photo by Misha Gravenor.
