Think you can comfortably live in 75 square feet? Probably not. But with smart design choices like I’m going to show you here you might be able to do just that. Heck, you might even WANT to! That’s what happened to me after I discovered the art of tiny living. Here’s how less means more in a situation like this:
- small utility bills
- low rent
- quick cleaning
- more freedom!
A Little History on Italy’s Smallest House
The most amazing part about this super tiny home in Italy is that it was originally built in the 1700s. It’s said to have been used in the 1930’s as a one room residence. But after that it was pretty much unused up until 2010 when Pierazzi, the current owner, got a hold of it and turned it into what I consider architectural magic.
As long as you’re not married with children, you can actually consider a living arrangement like this. If not, you can still enjoy the same benefits for you and your family in a small (not tiny!) home.
When the Pierazzi and his wife had a baby they decided to move out. But they still own it, let friends stay in it and occasionally rent it out. I hope we can see it on Airbnb soon!
Tour of Italy’s Smallest House
Walk inside from the entrance and you’re in the kitchen.
From here you can walk straight to the back to head over to the bathroom.
Or you can go upstairs and use the sleeping loft that also doubles as a living room thanks to the futon and wall mounted flat screen television.
And that’s it! That’s the complete tour. See more here.
