    182 Sq. Foot Apartment - and it's got a soaking tub!

    Seriously tiny, perhaps too much so for me. But he's truly made every cubic inch count. A single minimalist could definitely make this work.

    For me the biggest "no" of the space is the window right at sidewalk level. That makes security a major concern, at least for me. Especially in the summer when I would want to leave a window open overnight. (I suppose an optimist would say "yeah, but if the building is on fire he can get out!" although what optimist thinks about the positive side of what happens when the building catches fire...)

    Well, ok, maybe it's time for a new pair of contacts. This was obviously intended for Housing, not holidays. Alan, can you help me move it?

    Hmmm. My big boat is 37 x 14 feet, galley, salon/dining, pilothouse, head, main sleeping quarters.

    It's good for a couple people for a couple months, if they like each other.

    But there's about that much square footage outside on the decks too.

    Very interesting--I love how he used his engineering skills to really maximize the opportunity to fit as many living functions into the space as possible. I think the multiple levels is very useful, but it also leads to a bit of visual clutter. There are too many nooks for me, I think, as functional as they are. But it's extremely well-thought out and executed.

    I tend to agree. As a commenter on the video wrote, (paraphrasing) "it's well done but wouldn't work for me. I like to dance." On the other hand, I like that it isn't a bunch of "convertible" spaces. I look at videos of tiny homes where everything is constantly being moved around to turn one small space into various different use spaces and I think how tedious that would be over time. It was tedious enough when the only convertible space in my tiny NYC apartment was daily converting the futon from bed to couch in the morning and back to a bed again at night.

    Too much visual clutter like Catherine says. I was confused by the whole space even after I watch ed the video for a while.


    There’s a video on YouTube that follows that one about a four level tiny apartment in Paris that is I thinK slicker:
