Living in 320 Square Feet

Filed under: Personal History — Laura Moncur @ 6:51 am

When Mike and I lived in the Sugarhouse House, we lived in an 873 square foot house. Sometimes I miss the simplicity of that house, especially when I’m trying to keep up with the house cleaning.

Watching this video made me think that we could go even smaller.

I loved the perfect simplicity of the couch/guest bed at the 6:52 minute mark: YouTube – Shotgun shack redux: mortgage-free in 320 square feet 6:52 minute mark

We had something very similar in our living room, a futon. Unfortunately, a futon isn’t a very comfortable couch and doesn’t provide a lot of storage underneath because of the opening and closing mechanism. That couch is much more efficient.

Their workspace is in an entirely different building, but they also have a teenage boy living with them, so the thought of living in 320 square feet suddenly sounds possible. The thought of living mortgage free sounds even better.
