Meet the Halls and their lovely tiny abode So much space for a tiny house, it serves as home for a family of three. To borrow a quote from the Hall family online blog concerning their tiny house, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” Those five words, attributed to Renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci, sum up the feel to the Hall's 160-square-foot abode, which makes its home somewhere in the state of Massachusetts and serves as shelter for a family of three, including Mom, Dad and an 18-year old son.
