We’ve heard of the tiny home movement, but this is too much.
A recent apartment listing on Austin Home Search advertises a “super nice East Austin efficiency just 1 block from Fiesta Gardens, Lady Bird Lake, hike & bike trails.”
It comes with a bathroom and a kitchen. Utilities are paid for by the owner and there’s parking available on the street. There’s even a “nice yard with towering pecan trees” and a 6’x 8′ storage shed, which has “lots of room for your ‘stuff,'” according to the listing.
How big is it, you ask? Oh, 250 square feet. And it’s $1,050 a month.
The listing was posted to the r/Austin subreddit, where it was roundly mocked.
“I wouldn’t pay $600 for that and I’m not sure that many people would,” one user wrote.
“I prefer Arthur Jackson over ‘two sheds’, thank you,” another user commented, referencing the Monty Python skit.
If you’re in the market for a $4.20 per square foot apartment and you have the money to burn, this bad boy could be all yours. The rest of us will keep bemoaning the loss of Old Austin.
