"top ten reasons to live in a small house" and see some examples and designs here.)
When we were last in Merida, my attention (and my camera) kept getting drawn toward the many small facades on the streets of Centro and the possibility that these properties would make great "tiny houses." If you think about it, the reasons that people back home opt for "tiny houses" is a lot like the reasons that many people consider a move to Merida...to live in a way that meets one's needs without being excessive, to re-connect with a style of life that is more about people and experiences and less about the acquisition of stuff, and to step away from a "bigger is better" lifestyle.

When you go through the real estate listings in Merida, houses with narrow facades on long, narrow lots are usually at the lower end of the price scale, so it is pretty easy to get excited about them. Of course, not every narrow facade hides a tiny house. "La Pianista," made famous by the second House Hunters International episode as "the house that got away", is described in some listings as a 2700 square foot house!
