Great thread! Glad it was revived.

I lived in a 1 room studio apartment (by myself) for 14 years. It was after college, and my buddies and I were finally giving up the rent house we'd had. I needed something cheap, as I was (and still am) a full time working musician. It was a block and concrete 60s looking building, kinda cool. Don't recall the sqft, but is was a rectangular room with a kitchenette and bath at one end, a wall of glass at the other, and free standing wardrobe storage in the center dividing living and sleeping spaces. I fixed it up myself, even built custom modular furniture. It was great! Though it was before I knew what mid-century-modern was, I was already adopting the less-is-more mentality. When I finally met the girl I would marry, I bought a 1961 modernist ranch with 1271sqft (see link below signature for more on that). It felt huge! And best of all, I'd saved so much money over the years living in the "box" (as I called it), was able to put down $1/2 of the total price on the place.

We're now planning to add a 650sqft addition (hopefully this year) in order to repurpose our current his & her offices back into bedrooms (for our future expanding family), and to better integrate a future planned pool (and it's outdoor spaces) into the over all layout of our home. (FYI, a while back I started a couple of threads about our addition plans in order to get some advice. For those who recall, the plan has completely transformed since working with an architect.)

Our midcentury ranch in SoCal is 1600 sq. ft. It seems plenty large for 2 adults and a small dog.

My place is 1350 square feet. With just two of us, a couple cats, and a home office, it works out well. Only time it's troublesome is when we have more than 10 or 12 guests over at once and the weather isn't nice enough for everyone to spill out onto the back patio (which is itself probably the size of my whole house).

I wouldn't mind having an extra bedroom that I could use as a home gym, and maybe 50 extra square feet in my living room. And, since I'm making a wish list, a larger garage (or room to build a storage shed) would sure be nice so that I could actually park two cars in my two-car garage...

It's interesting: as a real estate broker, I have only sold one home (a condo, actually) that was smaller than my own place. So I spend most of my time inside houses that are much larger than my own, wondering why the heck they still don't feel as spacious as my place...

Would love to see pics of the studios! (Have I missed those posts in the past?)

I always marvel at those who have managed to live in very small spaces...I remember reading about a guy who lived in a something like a 90 sq. ft. place in Manhattan. I don't think I could ever detach myself from "stuff" to that degree, but I have to give major respect to anyone who can!

Perks,

I'll have to dig them out of our big photo box and scan a few. Yes...it was so long ago, I didn't yet have a digital camera (because they didn't exist). Hard to believe, I know.

I don't remember the actual unit number--I stayed there for about a month on a sub-let--but it was one of the units on the back side of the courtyard (i.e., the side that didn't face Gayley, Weyburn, or the alley). It's always been one of my favorite buildings in Westwood.
