San Francisco Considers Smaller Homes

New York, Boston and now San Francisco.

These cities are looking at their minimum size requirements and going smaller. So what does this even mean? Building code requires that houses and apartments meet certain minimum sizes for safety. That code is then adopted and added to at the local level. Most cities will place a minimum size on the "entire" unit or building that is higher than the original code requires. After decades of increasing home sizes, these 3 cities are looking to change their codes and reduce their minimum size.

San Francisco currently has a minimum size of 290 square feet. If the proposal is approved, that number will drop to 220. We're excited to see a move in this direction!

The Los Angeles Time has a nice article about it here.

Below is a clip from NBC with Brian Williams on the topic.
