Smallest House Ever


Jay Shafer lives in an 89 square foot custom house. From his website:
...since 1997 I have been living in houses smaller than some people’s closets. I call the first of my little hand built houses Tumbleweed. My decision to inhabit just 89 square feet arose from some concerns I had about the impact a larger house would have on the environment, and because I do not want to maintain a lot of unused or unusable space. My houses have met all of my domestic needs without demanding much in return. The simple, slower lifestyle my homes have afforded is a luxury for which I am continually grateful.
I love the innovation behind this. It takes some creativity--and IKEA--to make a living space out of less than 100 square feet.
