The Tiny Canal Cottage
When Whitney Leigh Morris found a 362-square-foot 1924 Craftsman-style home on the Venice Beach Canals in 2011, her life path took a turn. "When we first moved into our little home, we had no idea just how much it would change our lives," said Morris. "Years passed before it dawned on me that people might be interested in an inside look at what practical, accessible small space living is like."

Now, The Tiny Canal Cottage serves as her office, a small-space consulting studio, and the subject of her popular blog.
