Windows would help with the sewn in feel, allow more light and a view to at least something. No way!

Try living in your car before knocking living in a tiny apartment. I'd love to have a micro apartment right now, but here in Northern Lower Michigan, not in NYC. I've been living in my car for some time now, finances being extremely tight until next month, and I would feel as if I was living in a palace in something as large as 589 s.f.

I love the idea. But my concern is fire safety. What protocol is in place to prevent a major conflagration? That would be the one and only thing preventing me from ever trying this living system.
