When you are living in a tiny home there is limited space with no room for clutter and many of the homes are portable and on wheels ie tiny houses on wheels.
Tiny house design are typically all off grid. They’ve got things like composting toilets, laundry and a grey water processing unit on one side and a lounge room with a bed that drops down from the ceiling. Solar panels on the roof and a water tank to store rainwater.
