They always say things are bigger in Texas. But not in this case. There are super tiny houses that are popping up all over the place. They're all the craze right now. Popularity is gaining as more of these are being built in Texas. You don't have to go without luxury and convenience just because of the square footage. In fact, most of these are Taj Mahals compared to some of the one-bedroom apartments I stayed in growing up.

I knew the frenzy to stay in these tiny abodes was on the rise. But I didn't really get the full story of how awesome these things could be until I saw an article on the vacation website Trips to Discover. They've scouted out some of the tiniest houses in Texas. You've got to lay your eyes on these. There's a bunch of engineering and physics that go into these homes to keep them functional.

Texas may be as big as they come but great things come in small packages. The way these small containers and structures are turned into elegant living spaces is totally mind-blowing to me. I tell you, if you're looking for a clean living experience away from the bustle of Abilene, take a road trip and hit up one of these. Most of these properties are operated by Airbnb Superhosts.

It certainly appears that big things can come in small packages. Why settle for the same wimpy hotel room when you can go for the unique? Break out of the box. There are plenty of Airbnbs close to Abilene you might like. Find some below.
