About This Designer

Macy Miller is a mother, teacher, and an architectural designer. She designed and built her family’s tiny house in 2011 which has been featured in TIME and Dwell Magazines. After living tiny for 4 years and having two kids her family has since downsized from their tiny house to a rebuilt vintage travel trailer and are currently exploring the country. Macy remains a strong advocate of alternative living and small space dwelling. You can find her at her website

Perhaps no other tiny house in the world is more iconic than the Minimotives tiny house designed by Macy Miller. Macy, an architectural designer, began construction of her tiny home in 2011, did the majority of the work herself, and created this stunner for just $11,416.16. This beautiful 196 sf tiny house rests on a gooseneck trailer and has been featured in TIME & Dwell Magazines, and countless online news agencies and websites.  The spacious and modern feel in the Minimotives Tiny House creates a comfortable living space for a single person, couple, and even family with young kids. Macy, her partner James, their two children, Hazel and Miles, and their great dane Denver have created a beautiful life for themselves in Minimotives.

The Minimotives tiny house design could be perfect for you if you are single, living with a partner, and/or have young children (you can build a small addition to the trailer chassis for a kids’ bedroom like Macy did). It has fared very well in cold Boise, ID winters with monthly utility costs of $50 during the coldest months and $8 per month during the other seasons. This tiny house is also an excellent candidate for an AirBnB style destination.
