Steve Sauer’s 182 SF Condo

The Seattle Times recently did a feature on a tiny Seattle condo, Tiny apartment shows the value of a good fit:

Homeowners are building smaller in general. It’s economical and ecological. But few do it in 11-feet-3-inches wide, by 16-feet-2-inches deep, by 10-feet-4-inches tall (Sauer is very accurate) with two beds, a full kitchen with a dishwasher, bathroom with a shower, a soaking tub set into the floor just inside the front door. On three living levels. There’s also closet space, a dining table and storage for two bikes. All of it contemporary and in cool blue, with accents of black, red and white.

Wow. I shall never complain about 889 square feet again! Be sure to check out the pics.

Update: Cosmo Seattle has a few more details on this really small condo, Pico-Dwelling by Steve Sauer which includes a link to Steve’s site which has tons more details on the project, pico-dwelling.

About Matt Goyer

I love condos, lofts, floating homes, new construction and mid-century moderns so much so that since starting this blog in 2006 I've written over 2,000 blog posts about them!

For years I resisted becoming a real estate agent preferring to be a marketing executive at Redfin but after leaving Redfin (after seven years!) I caved in the spring of 2014 and became a broker. So if you need help finding that "Urbnlivn-style" place or selling your home email me at, I'd be happy to help you.

Prior to Urbnlivn and Redfin, I worked at Microsoft after graduating from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Mathematics with a major in computer science.

You can also find me on Twitter, @MattGoyer, or LinkedIn.

    What a great little dwelling. Having a space like this makes him have to be clear about his priorities. Guess Steve won’t be shopping for a massive flat screen television.
