There seems to be a little movement or trend towards super tiny spaces.
For the record, I am not someone who would be happy living in 100 square feet or less.
I really enjoy having open space, light and high ceilings.
I need a minimum of 500 square feet for myself and BF.
With kids, I’d say under 1000 square feet may be fun to try. (What? I don’t know how much space I’ll need or how many kids I’ll have. This is all speculation.)
For some people, this is real life. They have no choice, and here are some of the smallest spaces around!

Okay, so it isn’t a home per se, but it’s a mobile room that is kind of cool! Mr. Liu had a $20,000 budget for the cube.
Mr. Liu’s living cube was devised to separate his personal space from the part of his home.
The bi-level steel and plywood structure features a cozy bedroom and workspace, separated by a small shoji screen.
Atop the unit sits a meditation and tea loft, which is accessible through a hidden staircase and allows Mr. Liu a bit of an escape from life below.
It can be dismantled to fit through any standard 3-foot door.
You can read so much more about it on New York Times.
