How would you describe your living space: micro, macro, Versailles, or average American/Canadian/European home with a bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, etc not being the same destination?
Our home is about 1200 sq.ft with a normal layout of kitchen, living room, etc. being separate.
What is the smallest living space you enjoyed/suffered through? Largest?
I lived in a dorm room, but that didn’t matter because I spent so little time in it. You don’t need a kitchen, living room, etc.
I lived in a tiny apartment for four years that wouldn’t have been so bad except it was the attic, so that wall sloped in. It was likely about 350 sq. feet, with a bathroom on another floor. At the time, it was fine for me. I didn’t have a lot of stuff, or any animals. It was basically a big bedroom, and another room that was a kitchen. The kitchen was big enough.
Our largest house was the one in Wyoming. It’s main floor was four spacious rooms, and it had two bedrooms upstairs, and a big basement. It made it hard to move here, we had to get rid of a ton of stuff. We have no basement here for storage.
Is your dwelling large enough for you and your entourage/family/harem?
Our house feels big enough. I have too much stuff, but the house is fine.
Favorite part of your home?
The living room. It has a fireplace, and big windows that let in tons of light.
Would you agree to a micro apartment other than because you are poor in Hong Kong? Would it fit King Kong??
I couldn’t see my life fitting in one. I have animals, and tons of craft stuff. I would have been fine in one about 20 years ago, when I was in my 20’s. I would have eventually wanted more space, but it would have been fine for a while. It’s not a bad solution for people just moving away from home. It might work for some seniors, too. The rent had better be dirt cheap, though.
However, if circumstances changed, and that’s all I could afford, then I guess I could do it.
I feel that if they are a solution to a housing crisis, then yes, they would fit in Hong Kong, or any big city. I think they would do fine here in Edmonton, if the rent were reasonable. There are always lots of people in need of a simple place to live, who don’t have tons of stuff. Those people are likely living mostly out of a single bedroom somewhere already, a hotel room, or on someone’s couch.
It’s kind of too bad that people can’t just slow down on the baby-making a little, and reduce the overwhelming population crisis we are facing. I know that the birth rate is starting to slow down, especially anywhere that women get an education. It’s the only long-term solution to housing problems. 3 weeks ago
