Lately I've been hearing a lot of people complaining about not having enough room to work in. I know that not matter how often I clean up, as soon as I get started on something, I'm back to working in a space the size of my laptop.
So when I came across this news item, I was intrigued. Here's a man who lives in a house that's 96 sq ft large. Talk about compact!
Jay Shafer is the creator and resident of the smallest house in the world, which he has proudly named Tumbleweed. He's a San Francisco artist and architect, who sells plans for, and builds, tiny homes in sizes ranging from an extremely small 50 square feet to a practically roomy 500 square feet.
Jay has been living in a house smaller than some people’s closets since 1997. His decision to inhabit just 96 square feet arose from his concerns he had about the impact a larger house would have on the environment, and because he does not want to maintain a lot of unused or unusable space.
I'm too much of a pack rat to manage that ....but I do stand in awe of someone who can!
