Not quite that small or with a loft bedroom. Climbing down that ladder 3 times a night to visit the john would be a little much.

Well, I have lived with my folks and my brother in a 490 square feet apartment up until I was 20 years old or so.

It's a matter of simply being used to it. A small surface means everything is closer, so you don't waste much time to get (to) it. There is a lack of intimacy if, like in our case, there aren't as many rooms as there are people, but on the upside, it does mean you spend less time alone.

I had a place like that once. I got laid off from my job and spent months in there couldn't afford to go out and do much

I got so sick of it I would go outside all day because the walls felt like they were closing in

When I was a boy there four of us living in a 250 square foot house and the bathroom was a little brown shed out back. The water was fished out of the well in a bucket and carried in. Hot water was made on the stove or in the summer a tub in the sun.

You might say we were poor, but we were rich in family values and morals. Frankly considering how a lot of folks I went to school with ended up, I think I must have had a pretty darn good early life training.

That was then and this is now. I have way more house than I need or even want but under 300 square feet isn't going to do the job for me unless I have to make it work in order to live.

I can get a job saying, "Welcome to WalMart" or "Would you like fries with that?" and afford a little more house than 300 square feet. Is this guy driving, wearing or smoking his money?

Life is choices, always choices, make the right ones. No regrets that way when it is just you and the grim reaper.

I can live in a fairly small space, but not THAT small - I'd be claustrophobic!

Our first apartment was small: we had a full-size bed and had to sit on the bed to open the dresser drawers and the living room fit a small couch wall-to-wall. But that's the smallest I could live in without going stark raving mad.

This.

Plus, if I'm living with a beautiful woman, then I really won't mind.

That tiny house is very cute! Well I think I can live on any small house. We've been raised in a very small apartment when I was a kid and it is a very common situation here in the country where I live. The owner in the vid is right, you can design every detail of the house because it is very small. You get to appreciate any small spaces you have and make something useful out of it.

Anyway, I saw this video a few months ago. I just thought I'd share..

That brings back memories of my first flat after leaving home, it was so small I couldn't have swung a cat in it!

Well, I may boast of the experience of living in one room flat with three other people when I was a student,I couldn't afford bigger appartment at that time, and I should say it was even funny at times.Positive moments- I'm happy with everything I have now!

Providing the ceilings were usual height I couldn't see a major problem with it. Although I am not sure if I could with working from home, I might start to feel like a sardine.

But at least it would only take a minute or two to hoover...

I prefer to live in a big city but travel to small cities and maybe live on small ones for some years to test that kind of life too.

I could

live in a tiny house, provided it was one room. I'd need the airy feel of a large room. I frankly would prefer to live with less as it is.

A Tiny Apartment 330 Square foot Apartment Transforms into 24 Rooms

I have been meaning to post this video for the last two days. This is a highly engineered tiny living space.

I really admire this type of engineering.

I promise it it is worth the four minutes to watch.

Less is More...

When I moved from a big house to an smaller one, we had to rid of a lot of things that we thought we need them...Yeah, right? Well, we didn't!!!...We got things that we wanted but we didn't need it....It totally changed my shopping habits...Now, I question myself every time that I going to buy something.. Do I need it? or Do I want it?...if I don't need it, I put it back, save the money and become a happy shopper...If I buy it and later find out that I didn't need it...i got regrets...
Another good thing about downsizing: it is not the same to mop 800 sq ft. than 2700 sq ft...definitely less is more...less that I spend more money I have for other essential things that I did not know that I need before in the big house..such as vacations and certify organic foods...(organic can be pricey)
