San Francisco Supervisor Scott Wiener introduced legislation to redefine efficiency dwelling to include units as small as 220 square feet including the bathroom and closet. “We already have micro-units in San Francisco—it’s called roommates,” Wiener said. The board of supervisors agreed with a 10-1 vote.

SANFRANCISCO.CBSLOCAL.COM reports:San Francisco's building code got downsized Tuesday with the Board of Supervisor's approval of a pilot program that will build efficiency units, or apartments with reduced square footage requirements.

    If it were just me for a year, yes I cold live in a 220 square foot apartment.

    In Kyoto, Japan, 220 square feet is about 11 Tatami mats. That is a luxury apartment. "Tea room" apartments come at only four and a half mats, about 90 square feet.

    That's how the Japanese live, if they are lucky. Why should we live like that when we don't have to? Why bring us down to that level? This is just another get rich scheme by the developers.

    Sure! Families in Russia and other countries live like this all the time, why not us? In fact while we are at it let's just go totally off the cliff and allow our Central Government to pass the UN's Agenda 21!

    I'm extremely claustrophobic. If I lived in a room like that I'd have to remove all the furniture to even feel like I'm not being suffocated.

    I have too much stuff now.
    I use to be able to live in a dorm room, but even then the bathroom was separate and we had dining halls.
    If using safe-spacing/multi-purpose furniture then it's doable. I do wonder about the kitchen area. Not everyone's a chef, but not everyone is cooking dumb either.

    With the right set of furniture, it would be doable as a single person who just needed a "pad".

    Only if I had to, but I wouldn't want to and I'm sure my dog wouldn't appreciate it either. He's only fifteen pounds, but he'd HATE it.

    -Obama doesn't give orders, he takes them... from the U.N. and the British and Israeli royals... Obama is a stage performer. He's the Justin Beiber of politics.

    I want to move back up to the Bay Area! Orinda, or Rock Ridge, Walnut Creek, somewhere around there. There is a certain charm in Northern California, that L.A. lacks, can't quite put my finger on what it is.

    I could if I had to, but don't reliish the idea to much. I don't think we were meant to be packed in like a bunch of lab rats...its really not normal. But, I know people have done it, but it's still not a good thing for the mind, especially when there is more than one person in such a tiny amount of space.
