If you've ever considered swapping your home for something a bit more, err, tiny, now might be your chance to join the (ironically large) tiny home movement (that is, if you're good at puzzles). Starting today, IKEA U.S. is launching a nationwide scavenger hunt for a chance to win your very own IKEA tiny home. But don't expect it to be easy—participants will be asked to solve puzzles, unlock codes, and even write a short (or should I say, tiny) essay in order to win.

Between April 30th and May 12th, the Swedish retail-giant will be sharing six different puzzles on its Instagram page. Each puzzle will reveal six letters, which will then be used to unlock a secret password. Once you've figured out the password, you can visit the contest homepage, where you'll be asked to write a small essay about why sustainable living is important to you. (You'll want to be sure to write a good essay, since a panel of judges will be evaluating each individual essay based on several criteria.) Only those who make it to this point will be entered in the giveaway.

The idea behind the giveaway was to showcase how to create a small space that's not only stylish and affordable, but also sustainable and convenient. Though tiny, the 187-square-foot home includes a fully functional kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and living space as well as smart storage solutions to make all your tiny home dreams come true. And of course, the tiny home is decked out with some especially chic IKEA finds. In a press release, the retailer says, "The IKEA tiny scavenger hunt is a way to prolong the life of the IKEA tiny home and allow one lucky customer the opportunity to cherish it forever."
