    Default Mom, Dad, baby live happily in 380 square feet





    ( Gary Friedman / Los Angeles Times ) By David A. Keeps

    A lot of families start out in small houses just not this small. Kelly Breslin, Ryan Conder and their 9-month-old son, Thurston, live in a 380-square-foot 1950s house in Echo Park with living quarters built above the garage. The family also makes room for a mutt named Charlie. Conder and Breslin insist they prefer living small and don't let it cramp their style. The space is arranged for maximum efficiency but maintains the vibe of an artist's loft with a carefully edited selection of contemporary art and midcentury Danish and Italian furniture.

    We recently dropped in on Breslin and Conder, owner of the men's clothing store South Willard. It wasn't an exhausting tour -- you're looking at about half of their home here -- but their designs for living (and parenting) were eye-opening.

    I could not be cramped up like that. I have got to have a little bit of room to move.

    I would go crazy in that small of a space, even if I wasn't married with a child.

    That is roughly the size of my closet. Notice I said MY. There isn't room for my husbands things in there.

    No, too small. I'd lose my mind.

    Where's the bathroom? And way classy to just make the rip in the screen door double as a doggie door.

    It's probably too small to accommodate the cameraman.

    I had a studio apartment in San Francisco just a tad smaller than that. It was fine for a single person but I had the luxury of hanging out at my then boyfriend's bigger place. A family of 3 would have been pushing it.

    It would be a great living space for one person.

    The nice thing about so cal is that your patio can basically be an extension of your inside space most of the year. That helps, too.
