Small house living is a famous description of the architectural and social movement that advocates living in small homes. In the United States, with the average size of new single-family home has grown from 1,780 square feet in 1978 to 2,500 square feet in 2007, and to 2,660 square feet in size in 2013, despite a decrease in the actual size of the average family. Some reasons for this include increased material wealth along with prestige. Small house living is a return to houses that are less than 1,000 square feet. Frequently there is a distinction made between small house designs that are between 400 square feet and 1,000 square feet, and tiny house buildings that are less than 400 square feet, with some houses even being as small as 80 square feet. Downsizing to a tiny house building is a great way to do away with big mortgages, expensive hydro bills and all the stuff that goes into a large sized house, and a way to live a more sustainable and debt free lifestyle.

Yurts have a long history and are known by several names depending on where they originated. A traditional yurt from the Turkic languages or a ger from Mongolia is a portable, round tent that is covered with skins or with felt and used as a temporary dwelling by nomads in the steppes of Central Asia. The unique small house plan comprises an angled assembly or latticework of pieces of wood or of bamboo for the walls, a door frame, ribs to include poles, rafters, and a wheel which is a crown, compression ring possibly steam-bent. The roof of a yurt structure is often self-supporting, but larger sized yurts may have interior posts to support the crown. The top of the wall of the self-supporting yurts is prevented from spreading by use of a tension band that opposes the force of the roof ribs. Modern style yurts such as the yurts from Smiling Woods Yurts may be permanently built on a wooden platform. These modern style yurts may use modern building materials such as steam-bent wooden framing or of metal framing, canvas or tarpaulin, wire rope, Plexiglas dome, or radiant insulation may also be used.
