Inspirational Architecture – 3 – 215 sq ft cabin

by Chad Ludeman on December 4, 2007 · 7 comments

While some think 1,000 square feet is way too small, Cyril Brule (a French architect) is living in his 215 square foot Le Cabanon!

Check out all the pics at this materialicious post where this fantastic quote is from – “Like he says: he’s young and lives simply. His living space is really all about ‘outdoors’. What more do you need?”

I often wonder if the Philly zoning codes would allow us to build homes this small, could we sell them? What more does a young single need that is on the go 90% of the time they are not sleeping? If you had the choice between sharing a rental with 1 or more roommates and owning a sweet “cabin” like this for the same monthly payment, which would you choose?

If you enjoyed reading this post I can promise you'll love our new writing over at Postgreen Homes. Yeah, we know that's the same thing your favorite band said and their new album is nowhere near as good as their early stuff, but seriously, we are actually still getting better.

There also isn't much conversation to be had here . . . at least not with us. So come on over to the Postgreen Homes Blog and tell us what you think of our new(ish) digs and crazy ideas. We will be sure to tell you what we think of your opinion.

I’d take the cabin – equity makes it a no-brainer. I looked for such a thing in Phila 20 years ago when I was living alone. There has to be a market.

Agreed. You could get creative on how to orient and/or stack these type of units on a single plot of land in order to reduce the land costs of each unit.

It would be similar to a small condo building but much more unique…

I think it’s great but I’d want just a bit more space to be able to fit a small fridge and oven/range. Not being able to store any food or being able to cook anything for myself would add up to a ridiculous amount of money wasted. I’m sure there would be a market for something similar to this here in Philly. Not a large market, but a market none the less.

I don’t think it would be impossible to accommodate a small frig and a narrow stove.

What were are calling the “cabin” makes the most sense; especially when compared to living with a roommate. Nobody will be eating your food or encroaching on what you are watching on TV. Speaking of, where would I be able to put my gluttonous plasma.

But more to the point of this Blog….The “cabin” is 215 square feet at a cost of 30,000 Euros. Today that would be about $44,287.50 US or $205.98 a square foot. That seems a little on the pricey side. Especially when you guys are trying to build a home for only $100 a square foot.

Keep up the Good work PostGreen. I look forward to see how your project develops.

I refrained from exaggerating our current exchange rate and saying this would cost about $250K in the US to build. :)

Thanks for the comments. To your point, the price psf goes up as the size of the home decreases. With his house he still has many of the mechanicals and features a large home would have crammed in a small space. He still also has to build a foundation and probably is paying a slight premium for prefab.

Having said this, 1,000 sf is still on the small side for a $100 psf target which is where the challenge is. It would be much easier to achieve the psf target if we were building a 2k-3k sf home.

Hey Chad,

You probably already are familiar with this, but I came accross an article about small modular homes. May give you some ideas?
