The oversized family housing has been a major issue that causes the sprawling of cities and growth of ecological footprint. Tiny house, however, with its smaller space, will be able to reduce the ecological footprint of family houses by minimizing the construction waste and fully relying on renewable energy source for power systems. Therefore, the tiny house project should be implemented in some less populated cities.
