Family of Three, 380 Square Feet

Los Angeles Times

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?
