The small house movement has taken the nation by storm, so what better time than now to celebrate it? Right this second marks the commencement of Curbed's first-ever Micro Week, a five-day tribute to all things tiny. From mapping the smallest homes for sale to profiling the tiniest ward in New Orleans, we'll be diving into what it really means to live small in the Big Easy. Throughout the week we'll highlight the coolest tiny homes you can rent when you need a weekend away, uncover the best amenity-packed buildings if you're going to live in a teeny tiny studio, and map the smallest public spaces around New Orleans, plus much, much more.
Weeks like these present an excellent opportunity for reader involvement. If you've got something to say — whether it's about your love for your very small abode, or perhaps tips on how to effectively live in a studio apartment that clocks in under 300 square feet — please, email the tipline. Without further ado, let's get this party started!
