What’s the smallest San Francisco apartment you’ve ever lived in?

New, 3 comments

Let’s compare tiny horrors and/or small treasures!

If there’s one thing that San Franciscans love to commiserate over, it’s unfortunate or unusual living situations—and what better time than Micro Week to talk about the smallest apartments we’ve ever lived in?


In Curbed’s past and present Micro Week coverage, we’ve talked tiny homes. The movement, while fascinating and alluring in many respects, is a lot different in a big city. And while necessity sometimes makes the most tight situation work, we have no doubt that most of you, dear readers, have lived in some kind of tiny space at some point—and we want to hear your stories.

So let’s talk about our tiny San Francisco apartments in the comments. What’s the tiniest place you’ve lived in? Closet made into an illegal one bedroom? Super small studios? SRO experience? How did you like it? Did you sleep in a loft bed? Find a creative solution to making a cramped studio work? Are you still in a tiny studio and want to defend small spaces?

Let’s discuss. If you’ve got a photo of the small space to share, all the better.
