Family of Three, 380 Square Feet

It's one thing to live in a 140-square-foot house. It's another thing to live in a 380-square-foot house with your partner and your 9-month old son (and a dog). But that's what Kelly Breslin, Ryan Conder, and their son Thurston are doing right now in Los Angeles. The house has no bedroom, and the couple doesn't even own a crib—they practice co-sleeping. Our favorite line in the article is a quote from Breslin about all the "stuff" people assume you need when you have a baby. "We are trying to be conscientious about the choices we make," she says. "People tell you you need all this stuff for a baby. All you really need is diapers, a place to change him and boobs." What's amazing about their 380-square-foot home is that, from the pictures, it looks uncluttered, cozy, and well-designed. They make it look easy. But we wonder how old Thurston will be before he starts asking for his own room? See the gallery here. Read the article here. Image: Gary Friedman / Los Angeles Times
