The tiny house movement might start looking really appealing to city dwellers — one roughly 172-square-foot house recently featured by Reuters looks nicer than many studio apartments you’d find in New York City.

Tumbleweed Tiny House Company’s Cyprus house comes in models ranging from 130- to 172-square-feet. To put that into perspective, the average American home is 2,600 square feet.

The Daily Mail notes that the tiny house movement is a product of rising debt among Americans and a desire to avoid a 30-year-mortgage.

The Cypress house ranges in price from $57,000 to $66,000, and monthly payments can be as low as $433 a month. One bed apartment rentals in New York City average about 750 square feet and cost $2,700 per month.

The house is on wheels, so transporting your home from place to place is easy.

The space is minimalistic, but the house comes with a washer/dryer and shelves in the kitchen for storage.

It doesn’t look like there’s an oven in the kitchen, but there is a sink and a cook top.

The living room area is small, but it can still seat three people.

The bedroom is lofted and just big enough to fit a mattress.

Some models come with more than one bedroom, and the houses can be customized to include a full stove if the owner wishes.
