How small is too small?

This morning I woke up at 6am to workout.  I gave it a good go and lasted 20 minutes.  My body just couldn't move fast enough to keep up with the video and I finally realized that instead of struggling to get through feeling like crap I would write my blogpost to get ahead start on the day.  To be honest, I'm happy that I got at least 20 minutes excercise and that I'm posting so early! :) 

Today's post is more of a rant. This morning I read The Globe & Mail which featured an article about the construction of 30 Toronto condo rental suites 270 square feet in size.  Each comes with built-in wall beds, tables, chairs and flat screen TVs.  Is that not ridiculously small?  Look around your bedroom; it's probably the same size as the suite.  I can only imagine how much they would be to purchase.  They will be rental suites for $750/month.  It's like buying one room in a house.  We live in one of the largest countries in the world.  Do we really need to start packing us on-top of one another in these small rooms?  Does anyone else feel like they would be closterphobic?  How much smaller can the condo developers go?  I understand that Toronto is a very expensive city to live in and that it's hard to find affordable housing for anyone earning under $35,000 but don't they deserve a bit more space???

On a more positive note; I love the natural looking floors!  

Todays a very busy day.  I'll try to post something a bit more design related later.  For now it's time for me to shower and get pumped for a great day!  Have a great one my dear readers.
