Micro Week in Seattle; Born After Bertha

Without further ado, we present the latest and greatest from our sister site, Curbed Seattle.


MICRO WEEK -- It's Micro Week over at Curbed and we're celebrating everything that is teeny and tiny in Seattle. Naturally, part of that included finding the smallest places currently on the market. Everything on our list checks in at under 500 sq.ft., with the smallest spot coming in at a very snug 229 sq. ft. See the whole tiny map here.

TUNNEL WATCH -- There's been a lot of jokey answers to the question, "What if Bertha fails?" The folks behind Born After Bertha may be making a joke as well, but their plans for a massive, underground community center/playground/school complex certainly seems like no joke. Check out the stunning blueprints for this Plan B pipe dream.

STAYCATION -- Deciding to live in a 300 sq. ft. (or smaller) space isn't the kind of thing you want to rush into. So here's an idea: why not do a short-term rental to see how you like it? Curbed scoured the Airbnb listings to find unique retreats for you to sample, including yurts, treehouses and wagons, spread across Western Washington.
