By Kevin Stevens, Networx
Tiny is a relative term and generally refers to homes of 400 sq feet or less; many of these are much smaller at 98 to140 sq feet or so.

This portability is handy, but is mostly done to get around pesky building codes that relate to home sizes, room minimums, etc. By being on "wheels" these tiny homes are considered RV's and those code constraints are avoided. Another level of freedom comes from the affordable nature of these homes. A big house normally requires a big mortgage and a 30-year "sentence" of work to pay for it all.
