Home Buying: Could you live in 100 sqft?

It’s easy to complain about the size of base housing, the sparse square footage that BAH provides for off-base, and how that sectional sofa only ever fit that one house three duty stations ago, but what if you had to live in 100 square foot? One company in British Columbia, Canada, believes that their 100 sq ft prefabricated homes may help solve not only the world housing shortage, but also help combat the rising cost of housing. Estimating that their homes will cost between $20 and $90 per square foot, depending on the location in which they are built (South American countries such as Ecuador fall into the $20 range), the homes would cost as little as $2,000, and as much as $9,000. Oh, thrifty militaries unite! Would you go so far as to live in 100 sq ft to save money?

Life After Military Service

  
  
  
Life After Service

I remember distinctly the conversation my mother and I had about my new boyfriend whom she had not yet met. I was a college student at the time and had fallen head over heels for a “man” who was in the United States Air Force. Hesitantly, and even reluctantly, I mentioned this to her thinking she’d object immediately. After all, I knew very little about the military and what I thought I knew of it was unfairly negative.
