Definitely not recommended for claustrophobic people.
I heard of those. I hope that doesn't come here but I guess its better than sleeping on the street.

There must be a warehouse full of old iron-lungs that could be used as studio apartments.

See how happy she looks?

jesssss.....people I didn't ask what you think about it...honestly who gives a damn about your opinions...I asked if anyone had any good links or references...

I know u guys might need some friends and all so you feel like you can find that with your "witty" posts...but come on if you don't have an answer why post...

The only thing I will really be doing is sleeping there...I honesty don't stay in my 1100 sq ft apartment for more than sleeping as it is now..so I figured I could downgrade and save some money if you really must know....

So for all of you that responded with some smart ass remark trying to look cute...**** off.

The easiest way to find a place that small is to get a share and there are plenty of places to look for one. But what strikes people as weird is that most folks start by looking for the most space and working down. OP does it in reverse and people think he has lost his mind.

Good luck with your apartment search. Looking for square footage vs price range is bound to be a great strategy for you. Enjoy your new home.

Why wouldn't you conduct your search in the manner of, "Well I can afford to spend $XX on rent, so what's the best apartment I can find for that amount?" rather than starting out already looking for a shoebox?

You're putting the cart before the horse.
