Living In A Tiny Space


Increasing numbers of people seem to be living in tiny spaces, under 350 square feet. Here are some videos that show people living in these spaces, and seeming to like it.

This man’s apartment is 258 square feet. He designed it to be modular, “inspired by the space-saving furniture aboard boats, as well as the clean lines of a small Japanese home.”

This family in Mississippi downsized their 2,000-square-foot home to a 320-square-foot home. Their choice seems largely financial, but they also seem satisfied with simpler living.
Of course, this is nothing new. Most of the people living on the earth live in small spaces and many of them have found creative ways to deal with it. For example, take a look at this apartment in Hong Kong:

There are advantages to this lifestyle. It’s cheaper, environmentally friendly, and forces you into a minimalist lifestyle that seems appealing, at least on the surface.
In reality, it would be way too cramped for me. Plus, I love privacy.
What do you think? Would you ever live in a tiny home?

  1. I lived in a 450sqft apartment with my husband for a year – it wasn’t too bad. I missed having a place to eat, but the computer desk was a priority over a dining table. In our next apartment (775sqft) I got really creative with my sewing/craft area and fit it all in a closet, making use of a rolling TV cart and a sofa table that the TV cart fit under. That apartment was perfect for two people. With a baby now, I don’t know if we could do it nearly so easily.
