  1. 200km is “just north of Munich”? hmmm…

    My brother-in-law renovated a house a few years ago.  The house was originally 320 square feet, if I recall correctly.  The lady who bought it was told by her bank said it was too small to be financed and needed to be enlarged.  

    Aside from other renovations, he lifted the roof up, added a partial 2nd floor (at about 2/3 of the first floor, and dropped the roof back down.  My guesstimate is that it would have ended it up at about 56 square meters.

    The website for the hotel is well done and its unpolished english adds a special touch.

  4. The smallest may be The JailHouse Inn in Sierra Madre… from their website “The entire space is about 200 square feet—we have been deemed the smallest [ and we think---the cutest! ] Hotel in the U.S. -”

    I’ve met several participants in the small house movement and was lucky enough to visit one in the Bay over the summer. It looked like a gypsy caravan wagon  parked behind a brick house in south of Oakland. A husband, wife, two sons and a morbidly obese persian cat lived there.The house cost 20K to build and was so clean and airy, compact and smart. When my four kids move out I’d like to retire in a small house and now I’m considering making one for a hotel! Watch out KOA cabins!
