Could You Live In Ten Square Feet? [VIDEO]
Did you see our post about the 90 square foot apartment in Manhattan? How about the family that lives in a 320 square foot home? My home is approximately 1700 square feet and according to the National Association of Home Builders, the average American home is 2,700 square feet. Hard to believe that many think that’s not big enough, well, how about living in 10 square feet?
Dr. Mike Page, at the University of Hertfordshire in the UK, has built a compact home that’s 10 feet long, 10 feet wide, and 10 feet high in which he says that one person can live comfortably. It’s also green having a minimum impact on the environment.
Inside you’ll find a living room with a table and two custom-made chairs, a small double bed, a full-size shower, an energy-efficient kitchen with plenty of storage, a washing machine, and a composting toilet. LED lights, an Ecodan air-source heat pump, cork flooring, and solar panels add to its eco-friendly appeal.
How they pack all that in is amazing so, take a look and you’ll see how remarkably livable this little box could be.
