Check Out This “Micro Suite!” An Apartment – Crammed Into A Single Bathroom!

Check Out The “Micro Suite!”

At a time when an affordable apartment is getting harder and harder to find, one enterprising landlord shared an ad for a “micro suite” – see it above?

However, this Craigslist apartment listing was actually just a bed placed in a bathroom!

It happened in Vancouver, BC – a town that is huge – and hugely expensive – so when an ad for a “newly renovated micro studio located in the west end” was listed, it got lots of attention…but it did state it was for someone “who does not need much space”.

The “zero bedroom / one bath” living space was priced at $680/month – a steal!

Except that it was only 160 square feet of space, less than what the City of Vancouver defines as a rental “micro-dwelling” unit of 250 sq. ft.

The city’s “micro-dwelling” guidelines address how bathrooms are to be laid out with attention to privacy, sightlines and the direction of the door swing.

“Bathrooms must be physically separated from the remainder of the unit by partitions and a door to ensure privacy and to isolate noise and odors.”

I would hope so!

Oh well, another affordable apartment is off the market – although, how long could you live in a bathroom with a bed?

Remember this “nano apartment” I shared?

Yep, it’s approximately the size of a single parking spot!

Of course, it’s not just apartments that can be surprisingly small they can be works of art as well, like this:

What an incredible “interlaced” apartment building complex!

  1. I can’t imagine that this would ever work. A grand (greedy?) idea to provide housing.

  2. I suppose a desperate city dweller would consider this (before it was banned). I’m with Henry David Thoreau – give me woods and fresh air and wide-open space!

  3. I’m feeling claustrophobic just looking at it.

  4. I would think it would be very austere to live in a bathroom with a bed in it. Is there no requirement in the law for somewhere to cook?

  5. John, that bed in a bathroom is totally outrageous! No storage space except those underbed drawers; nowhere to cook anything, or make a hot drink. I think the potential ‘landlord’ should be ashamed. Imagine taking a ‘hot date’ home to that! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
