Tiny apts becoming the rage

Rents are soaring in many big cities so teeny-tiny apartments--say 300 square feet--are becoming more than an amusing novelty.

Kris Hudson wrote about this in the WSJ, Dec 20, 2103. They are called micro apartments.

They are about the size of a hotel room. And they cost half of what a normal apt would. Pricey for what you get?

Often there is no separate kitchen or bedroom.

They are aimed at singles in their 20s or 30s who work a lot and don't hang out at home.

Experts swear this trend is on the march.

I read in my DC newsletter that some people in DC even raise children in them.

No way! Really? I guess they got tired of sanity.

Me, I like Airstreams. In theory.
