Kay alerted me to this neat article about four people living in 180 square feet mostly on weekends that she discovered over at apartment therapy.
Tammy, John, Sam, Will, and their dog Dobbs from Gambier Island, British Columbia, Canada, armed with a hacked $25 shed plan and an incredibly generous friend with actual skills, constructed this cute little cabin.
Their cabin is a work in progress and probably always will be.

The footprint is 10 by 12 feet. That’s right: 120 square feet. The sleeping loft is 6 by 12, making the grand total 180 square feet. The deck, which was added this past spring, is 10 by 10, and boy, does it make a difference. With both doors open, it feels luxuriously spacious, believe it or not. The materials cost – including salvaged windows and doors – was about $7,000.
Based from the Californian from Just Sheds for the pitch of its roof. The 10 by 12 with a 13-foot ridge gave them enough room to tuck in a sleeping loft. They hacked the plans to extend the roofline out 4 feet over the door, and they built the floor out of of 2x4s.
Please go to apartment therapy and read the complete details and a well written story.
