Good Questions: Help for Tiny 200 sq/ft Studio!

This great, space-saving closet-turned-office belongs to an AT Boston reader from Burlington, Vermont. Her question is: I believe my 200 square foot apartment's ceilings are too low for the classic tiny space solution of a loft, but correct me if I'm missing something. At 7'5" it seems it would have to be mighty cramped either above or below. The lack of usable wall space is tricky: with windows, radiators, strange built in shelving and two closets, I'm just left puzzled...

Jump below to see her floor plan and weigh in on what could help her save space in her tiny place.

I'm writing from a tiny, tiny studio apartment in Burlington, VT. I am hoping the AT crowd will be able to give me some fresh ideas on how to make my space work. Storage isn't an issue, I don't have much stuff, it's just finding enough room to cook, eat, sleep & play the occasional game of Backgammon or Masterpiece. I have attached a pdf of my current floor plan, as well as a before and after of my proudest space saving measure thus far, my closet-office (pre-shelves unfortunately, doesn't look as cool without them).
