Hoarders, the Mudcub Edition
Black eye
I was trying to figure out how to make all my posessions fit into a New York City apartment. Here is the absolute minimum space I think I need... minus bathroom, closets, and storage space:










Bedroom (8.5 by 10.5) = 89.25 square feet
Guest Bedroom (9 by 9) = 81 square feet
Dining Area / Two-Person Game Table (5 by 8) = 40 square feet
Entry Area (3.5 by 7) = 24.7 square feet
Poker Area (7 by 7) = 49 square feet
Computer Area/ Music (6 by 6.5) = 39 square feet
Scaffolding Storage Area = (11.5 by 12) = 138 square feet
TV and Discussion Area (10 by 13) = 130 square feet
Exercise Area (4 by 13) = 54 square feet)

Total space needed = 644.95
Plus extra room to walk around all the stuff!

In looking at what you were showing, I was thinking is this just for you or for you and Thor? If for both, double that space, 600 Sq Ft 1 bedroom are NOT huge by any means and that would be somewhat large by NY standards I would bet and that's what I live in here in Seattle.

My living room area is roughly 11x9Ft in a space that is 11x17 that also has the dining area and think of doorways and glass sliders and hallways too as they take up space along walls where furniture would otherwise go and thus the need to take into consideration for traffic patterns throughout the space. In my case, due to the slider making the outside west wall shorter, it limits me in how I can comfortably arrange my furniture since the space isn't very deep in one direction and after thinking about it a lot, the couch can only fit on the wall that backs up to the bedroom without feeling wedged in but it puts my couch where one can enjoy the view from it so it works.

For small space living I'd suggest you peruse through Apartment Therapy for idea and books on small spaces to see how to handle them without making them feel cluttery.

Good luck!
