Washington D.C.'s first tiny house village showcases a new model of urban living.

D.C. Council Member Vincent Orange recently offered a solution to the city’s shortage of affordable housing: building 1,000 600-square-foot tiny houses throughout D.C., priced at $50,000 each. While many are dismissing his plan as gimmicky and unrealistic, his proposal is the latest in the growing number of small-living concepts that have hit D.C. We explore the appeal of micro-living and why — for some — less is more when it comes to housing.
