I've been mooning over this site for a while now: Tiny Texas Houses, which showcases homes barely larger than a Radio Flyer wagon (160 to 336 square feet) built from the architectural bones of much bigger, century-old homes.

I love compact designs like Steve Sauer's personalized condo, but aesthetically, I prefer spaces that resemble something my grandparents died in—old, charmy farmhouses filled with broken antiques, guns, and back issues of newspapers long out of print. These homes are the best of both worlds.

It's Friday afternoon. You want to go home but you've got a half hour to kill. Cooing over these homes will eat up 15 minutes, easy.
