    And we thought our sewing rooms were small. I guess if we did this to our sewing rooms, we could eventually get a factory sized area. :)

    WOW, that whole apartment is less than 1/11 of the size of my home plus I have a full basement, attic, two and a half car garage, and a large yard, and there's only three of us here. I can't imagine being so confined. He's made it work but there's a lot to be said for small town living.

    His whole apartment is a little less than 25 x 15. Their culture in China, families live in small areas like that. So most don't think nothing of such a small space.

    Thanks for the link. What a brilliant and well thought out use of space. Great tips for leaving a smaller footprint and using up fewer resources.

    Interesting! When you think about it, Why have the kitchen all "exposed" when you are not using it, or any other room. When no one is sleeping, fold the bed up out of the way and pull out the "office" or whatever. Hide away the laundry when its not being used . . . hmmmm

    I'll buy carbon footprint allowances like Al Gore. Give me my big house.
