Could you live in a home that's only 400 square feet?

Do you really need a place to live that's 5,000 square feet or more? Of course you don't, especially if it's only you and your partner. My wife, Mindy and I have been married for almost 44 years and believe it or not, we're still buddies. A tiny home will only work if you and your partner still like each other.

If you don't place a premium on square footage and you don't have the cash for a $300,000 to $500,000 mortgage, a tiny home is worth looking into in Connecticut. The following available tiny houses come courtesy of Realtor.com and Danbury Patch.
