Microliving coming to a City Near You
Check out this Wired article on Micro-Apartments being built in San Francisco. For $1000 a month, you get a spacious 300 square feet of awesomeness. So in essence, you are paying for a really expensive dorm room. Not sure how many folks could fit in one of these. I bet a you would end up with lots of couples trying to live in this small space.
The layouts are really smart. Everything is there, bathroom, shower, wash/dryer, kitchen and foldout bed. The biggest challenge would be, of course, downsizing your stuff to fit. Clothes and things like bikes would seem like the biggest challenge. With the advent of digital books, movies, and music, that stuff doesn't take up any space any more.
