Life in a 400 Sq. Ft. Studio Apartment with My Wife and 2 Sons

This is the story of how a man, his wife, and two sons creatively lived in a 400 sq. ft. studio apartment in San Francisco for some time to save on commuting and monthly rent early in their lives.

Between July 2011 and August 2015 I lived in a ~400sqft studio apartment in San Francisco. I moved in a bachelor but by the time I moved out, I was one member of a four person family. Here are some things I learned along the way.
