Create Your Own Space!

Videos | October 1, 2010

You can’t just look at the floor plan for a 300 square foot condo – you’ve got to put yourself into the space!

You’ve got to do more than just imagine yourself vying for room in that tiny little box, and that’s what I’ve tried to do in this video.

It’s truly the perfect way to spend a Thursday night…

I don’t care what the floor plan looks like, or what the friendly salesperson tells you in the condo sales centre – people weren’t meant to live in 300 square foot boxes.

A coffin is roughly 32 square feet, FYI…

    Wow! what a great video! thanx for outlining (like a crime scene!!) what 300 sq.ft. would entail!! Not for me! Studio/bachelor apartments have always existed, people do seem to survive in them, a very spartan lifestyle, I guess, and not for the long haul…. But actually buying one to live in seems an unwise choice!! Developers probably love them!

    Wow, makes my temporary 480 sq ft seem downright palatial. David, have you seen many of these kitchen condos irl? Smallest I’ve seen was 400 and it was not too bad except for the kitchen right in front of the bathroom horror that plagues so many units. Ikea has some small unit setups on display that are cute but I’m thinking they might be at least 375 – must go back and check.

    I imagine the bathroom would be more like the tiniest EasyHotel things in London – those are insane. Your feet are in the shower when you’re sitting in the washroom.

    And definitely even smaller than 300 sqft

    That saying the shape of the place is a perfect rectangle ……… What if it’s a triangle ? Or has wild angles??

    Good Luck with that!! This is a perfect world condo replication! lol

    I couldn’t agree more. Renting makes much more sense. I swear that there will be a backlash and people will not buy these little condos in the future. They are just too ridiculous! There are SO MANY of them being built too. How much longer can society act like living like this is perfectly normal?
