Seungchul You sits in his one-room, 200-squared foot apartment at Element 10 in Seattle, Washington May 12, 2013. "I moved into this apartment 7 months ago, I live alone, and I don't need a bigger apartment" said You, an English student at a local community college. Tiny apartments are cropping up in major cities around the country to meet the demand of people who are short on cash but determined to live in areas with otherwise pricey rents. Micros, also known as "hostel-style" apartments, usually offer less than 200 square feet (18.5 square metres) including private bathrooms, and they typically come furnished, sometimes with built-in beds and other amenities to save space.
