An Oregon couple is calling their 221 square foot home “the mansion of dreams.”

Andrew and Gabriella Morrison said their home may be small, but has everything they need.

According to ABC News, the house, which is only slightly bigger than the size of a Chevy Suburban, has a grand staircase, a master suite, home office and a guest room.

“I mean I can do Donna Summer dance moves in here if I want to,” said Andrew Morrison. “This place is huge.”

The Morrisons said it only cost them $22,744 to build their home and construction was completed in four months.

More people are choosing to live in tiny houses, according to Ryan Mitchell, a tiny living expert.

“I think that tiny houses have become so popular because we are looking for a way to escape the rat race, live a purposeful life and avoid debt. Tiny houses allow you to do all those things in one small package,” explained Mitchell.

Many people who dwell in small spaces such as these say they learned who they really are by living with less.
