Dope Sh!t: The Largest Tiny Apartment in NYC

I often fantasize about remodeling shipping containers and making a home out of 'em in a very near hippie future of mine.

However the video below took my fantasies of eco-friendly living to a whole new level. My mind was blown the first time I saw this video. 

I am so down for this from an ecofriendly and efficiency point of view. However, I can't help but think how laborious it must be to be that neat allll the time. The space is so precisely designed that there isn't really "room" to forget to put something back. If you forget to make the bed you lose your workout space & entertainment space.

I showed this video to a few people and one in particular was concerned that a drunken night returning to this apartment would make for an interesting story, especially if you get a little disoriented as to the difference between the toilet seat and the privacy seat.

This space is definitely for the person with an acute affinity for detail and ... to be politically incorrect, always having their shit together. That person is also probably aroused by the act of putting everything back after use. I'm just saying.




Could you live here?

Yes! Maybe we will! One of those containers would be an ideal working space.
