182 Square Foot Apartment

The Seattle Times has a great new article on a really Tiny Apartment that fit the needs of this bachelor.  Really interesting design elements here, especially the hidden soaking tube that is hidden under the floor!

Sauer likes this precision. Awkward spaces, wasted places annoy him. Two alarm clocks, two music sources, extra furniture. Needless, needless, needless.  “What I really wanted was one place with exactly what I needed and wanted. Quality is more important than quantity for me, and extra space only a problem,” he has written, describing his nearby too-big-for-him, one-bedroom condo.  To me he says, “I tend to like things in their place.”  And that explains it: The uber-cool, fully functional 182-square-foot home for two on the basement floor of a 102-year-old apartment building that Sauer is finishing after seven years of work. It could also have something to do with his line of work — airplane interiors engineering for Boeing. And education — a master’s degree in whole-systems design.


  1. I love it! I’m kind of confused though…. soaking tube? (or tub?) I’d like to see a pic of that and of the cooking area also. I’ve been musing about a tri-level tiny house and have toyed with the idea of putting the bed in a “cabinet” under the main “living area”, but this way works, too. I don’t see any steps, though to the reading area. I wonder if he just takes one big step.

    There is one additional photo there… I still don’t see how that soaking tube works… or where it is located.

  3. oh, I see it now, its under the red bike.

    • Oh yeah, sorry there is another photo you can see in the link, under the bike you can see a circular outline, that is the tub.

  4. I’ve always been captivated by a cocoon type habitat.

    Very little belongings, a feeling of warmness, just the essentials that I love and use regularly.
