Living In A (Very) Small House of 89 Sq Ft - Or "Living With Less"

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Zillow

This is a really cool video about living in small houses - or "living with less".  It is interesting to watch the trends as people desire to live in less square footage than what was popular even just a few years ago.  While this is taking it pretty extreme - in a lot of ways, this sort of looks like a nice way to live to me.

Sara,

I watched that over the weekend and posted on my blog.  Crazy!  I certainly couldn't and wouldn't want to live in that small house.

I watched this last week, cute house, but just too small for me.

Interesting video. I am ok with downsizing but this is a bit too downsized! Where would I put the widescreen TV?

Of course this is totally taken too far, but the point it makes is priceless.  I want to bookmark this so I can occasionally send it out to the people who complain about how all thoses I show them are always so "small."  What gets me is that he's supposedly lasted in the house for 10 years.  Wow.

What a cute little home.  I totally can understand his perspective and have to admire him for going against the grain.
