12' Square

Is twelve feet square enough room to live in? Designer James Stuart thinks so, and is practicing what he preaches in his own 12' cube house in Canada.

From This Big City: "The cube contains a bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen with dishwasher, microwave and oven, and plenty of natural light, which Twelve Cubed believe is 'everything you need to make your life simple, modern and convenient'."

It also produces 1/5th the CO2 of the average house.

They're all over the older neighborhoods of Philadelphia - It's three rooms stacked on top of each other, connected with a small, spiral staircase. The first two floors are typically 13 or 14 feet wide and 10-12 feet deep. The 3rd floor is sometimes a little smaller.
