    Link: Manhattan Shoebox Apartment: This Is Living? - I`m not going to say a 78-square-foot mini studio is typical for New York City, but don`t expect much more than this.

    I like this as an experiment but I would not be comfortable without something kitchen-like.

    SpaceRanger- They are across the hall. When he went to get water to make tea he went to the bathroom which he said he shares with like 3-4 other people.

    On another note, I`d really like to have a set of plans for that couch/bed...

    Something is not quite right about this guy... he spends all day at his computer looking at what are probably massive technical drawings, yet he only has this measly laptop. At least it`s not a mac.

    He works from home, yet he chooses to live in a tiny, cramped, overpriced room. Why? If you have the luxury of working from home then why not live anywhere... like in the country? For the price of that room you could probably rent a small house. There is no commute advantage if you don`t need to commute.

    Odd... he`s an odd one. Architects... I want to be an architect... but not like this. Freaking hipsters.

    @ auburnjunky - it`s New York City. Rents really are thousands of dollars there.

    I love NYC but the price kept me from moving there. still, if you earn $500,000 a year it`s a great place

    You built a 2750 sq ft home for $15k? How?

    You have much to teach us wise one.

    I like cramped places, since I`m insane like that, so this actually looks really comfy to me. The $800 a month is ridiculous though.

    Where I live isn`t anywhere near as exciting as New York, but I pay 500 a month for a 3 bedroom, 2 story house, with a pretty large yard (rent, I also pay another 20 a month to have pets). My friend who is buying her house pays 416 a month for a 4 bedroom with 4 acres. That includes her taxes and insurance....

    $800 a month? I pay that for the mortgage on my 3 bedroom house. Either way though, I lived in a room that size in a fraternity house in college. It`s actually pretty cozy.

    Pretty sure that was a different apartment, i too remember the video. She had a bed above the entrance and a hipster behind the door. She also claimed to be some sort of professional organizer, but all her crap was in cheap bins on cheaper shelves that she had to stand on a rolling chair to reach.

    Wow. That`s how much I pay, and I have a house 5 minutes from downtown Toronto that I share with 2 other people.
    And I thought rent here was high.

    What an idiot, seriously he is prepared to pay for something the size of our hallway just so he can live in Manhatten. Parts of London are like this and its pretty stupid pretentious people that would choose to live in a cupboard rather than admit their money won`t stretch to a particular part of a city they`d rather live in. I admit I`d rather live in a marginally smaller place in a safer part of town, compromises like this make sense to me, but not just so I can boast about where I live at the expense of a decent home. What a tit he is.
