This is Truck-a-Float. It’s a floating micro shelter in NYC built using recycled truck caps.

Architects Matteo Pinto and Carolina Cisneros wanted to create a houseboat to live on in the summertime in New York City. The owners of Marina 59 in Far Rockaway, Queens had given them the space to build something (they paid the slip fee). Inspired by the hundreds of used truck caps they saw for sale along the highways of New Jersey and New York, they decided to build a floating home using a cap as a prefab roof complete with windows and screens.1

This is a 340 sq. ft. modern NYC studio apartment. As you enter the apartment you first see the open living area and the kitchen that wraps around the bathroom.

At the end of the kitchen is a small bar area for dining. And the open living area seems spacious enough to have a small gathering of friends and family over. Wouldn’t it be cool to see an expandable dining table in here?

The built-in entertainment center has plenty of cabinets to store your personal belongings and keep them out of sight. And there’s even a sleek work area with even more storage.

Around the other side of a wooden shutter divider is the bedroom. A sliding door for privacy would be great here, don’t you think?

Inside the bedroom you will see there is a closet with sliding doors along with plenty of drawers for your clothes. Please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!

This tiny one bedroom apartment for sale in the West Village area of New York City is a dreamy small space for anyone who desires to live in the big apple.

Inside you’ll find tons of built in furniture with plenty of storage along with oak floors, a beautiful courtyard, and an equally amazing location.

As I write this, this tiny apartment is actually for sale with an asking price of $625,000. And believe it or not, that might actually be a good deal in that area. Crazy, isn’t it?

This 425 sq. ft. micro apartment in Manhattan has been wonderfully renovated called the MicroLoft. Back in the 1990s it was purchased for about $95,000.

Years later it was renovated for a cost of $400,000 for a client to make every square inch inside count and I’m showing you here so you can get an idea of what you can really do with a small amount of space. And, of course, we can implement the same ideas in here ourselves (if you’re a DIY person) and not pay any where nearly as much money.

Louise Harpman, founding partner of Specht Harpman, says that the demand for small spaces right now is huge and it continues to grow in many areas across the country. She also talks about other designs like the ZeroHouse that they are developing and offering.

Right now in this post I want to show you how Nate Berkus has turned this woman’s 250 sq. ft. micro apartment in NYC into a gorgeous tiny palace with storage galore throughout.

The kitchen was renovated with state of the art space saving appliances. One of the most unique parts of the home is how Nate used wall to wall floral curtains to create hidden storage (see below).

Now every square inch of Martha’s apartment is being properly utilized with appropriate storage and decor. See for yourself below and let me know what your thoughts are on it in the comments.

In this post you’ll get to tour two tiny apartments in NYC where residents are living large in their small spaces.

The first is a couple who were able to purchase a 220 sq. ft. micro apartment for $160,000 in the city (that’s a good deal in NYC). They converted it into quite the beautiful, luxurious space (as you’ll see).

The second is a woman who rents in the city and although she doesn’t have the most luxurious apartment or furnishings she’s happy because she can easily walk to her favorite places.
