182 square foot home

Posted by Jakub

This might not be ideal for some people but I hope to one day have a space like this. Seattle’s Steve Sauer who stands 6’2″ made a 182 square foot condo work for him, it looks very functional to me, i’m a fan of the space above his television and where he stores his bikes.

While this is clearly affordable and manages space well, I’d get claustrophobic in such a small space. I would feel like need to be out of the condo constantly just to get some open space.

I don’t want to live in a hugh palace, but I definitely need some space.

Wow, what an incredible, considered space.

I also like the way he stores his bicycles. I understand that many people have multiple bicycles for different kinds of riding, but does anyone else find it kind of odd that a person who lives so simply owns 3?

This is actually not far from where I’m at in Seattle—could be worth checking out. I’m 6’3″ though, it might be a tight fit.

This space is beautiful. Nice find Jakub. Reminds me of a book I recently picked up. It’s full of small functional yet beautiful houses. It’s titled “Houses of Asia” by Feierabend. The book was published in 2003, but is full of detailed descriptions and photos of the houses.

I can imagine you’d have to be extremely disciplined to live in a space this tight. The smallest amount of clutter would seem overwhelming. Looks nice, though!
