    I kind of like it. I like small houses, though that's quite a bit smaller than usual, of course. It would definitely force you to live simply, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

    Plus, you could always add a second floor to get it up to 5-600sqft.

    Wow, thats a small house but it's cute. To be honest, I can actually see myself living there. I don't like clutter so this house would be nice for people like me who like clean, simple places.

    There should be a little, itty-bitty doghouse out back. For a chihuahua.

    Near Redmond Town Center, you could get about $275K for that place. $300K if it has parking.

    No, seriously... There are 475sq.ft. condos near RTC which start in the low $300's.

    Yeah, one of my first thoughts was wondering where one would store a bike in a place that size. Aside from possibly leaning it against or hanging it on the wall behind the sofa, one might need a folder in order to store a bike indoors.

    Store it inside the Murphy bed, and sleep on a twin mattress on the floor!

    Oooh, very nice. One could probably hang two bikes on the wall behind the frame. When it closes up, none would be the wiser!

    [edit: Hmm, maybe not. But possibly one.]

    Whoever that was was probably offered some good coin for that spot. In retrospect I wonder if he/she regrets holding out haha

    i can totally see myself in living in that right now. with three bikes it would be tight but a wall/ceiling mounted bike hoist would work great!

    don't remember if it was I.M.Pei who did a similar study on a small house that only took up something like 300 sq. ft. foot print....now i have to find out 'cause its going to bother the heck out of me where i read that article...

    That would make a handy backyard guest house for people who you don't want to
    stay with you very long.
