One of the first things people generally do when they buy a house, before they move in even, is paint the walls. But what about those who rent our homes? Fortunately, there are a million other ways to decorate your walls if you are unable to paint and/or puncture your walls. Gallery Walls This is a great option for renters who can't paint their walls, but are allowed to make nail-holes. I love Young House Love's gallery wall (shown above) since they literally "wallpapered" their hallway with frames.

In Madison, Wisconsin, a group called OM Build has a new take on the issue—and it happens to be tiny. Say hello to… Tiny houses! Too cute! These 99-square foot houses are built cheaply and without a need for serious, specialized construction skills. Based on a similar project in Portland, Oregon, these tiny houses (for now) must be moved every 48 hours to comply with a city ordinance.

Instead, they, and others in the “small house movement,” know that efficiency and green living can be more important. Together, they decided to do something mind blowing – even though it is tiny. They built a house together. Christopher and Merete had no building experience, but they knew what their foundation would be… literally. Nonetheless, they decided to build their dream home.
