These virtual tiny houses look better than our actual houses, to be honest.

To celebrate the release of “The Sims 4” Tiny Living Stuff Pack coming out this month, the game’s developers are holding a competition to see who could build the best tiny residential lot. The criteria are as follows: Originality of the layout, complexity of design, and uniqueness of the lot. 10 deserving winners will each receive a copy of “The Sims 4” Tiny Living Stuff Pack.

The contest is still ongoing as of this writing, but seeing the entries so far, we guarantee the judges will have a hard time choosing the winners—they’re just all so good! Let’s take a look.

Like any tiny house, appearances can be deceiving. This home might look cramped from the outside, but it’s surprisingly spacious from the inside.

Then there are entries which made the most use of their locations. Take this tiny house by a cliff, for example.

Or these treehouses our younger selves had always dreamt of.

Some made houses that are complex, at times bordering on the eccentric.

And there are ones who believe in less is more.

What’s a tiny house competition without shipping container homes?

Kudos to these gamers for thinking about sustainability, because isn’t that the point of having a tiny house anyway?

Also, let’s not forget those dwellings on wheels (though I don’t think this particular homeowner will be road tripping anytime soon).

There were also some cute themed ones, too. 

Ok, this is not what we’d consider tiny, but as one Twitter comment suggests, “Well compared to Beyoncé’s house it IS tiny indeed.”
