I think I’ve confessed on the blog in the past about my suppressed desire for small space living–a one room home that, in my mind at least, has only the essentials. And those essentials should be just about perfect, since they will be the only items on hand, right?

It’d probably have a main space with a work area and plenty of organization/storage, like this:

The adjoining kitchen would need to be no-nonsense and able to double as the laundry room:

Of course there would need to be an outdoor space:

Plus, there’s no hampering your individual style since there are so many terrific options to choose from–like the sleek IT HOUSE, shown here.

And you thought prefab meant living in a trailer park…
