    Am I missing something? That's exactly what they are. Since when was a bedsit such a problem?

    Doesn’t look that small really.

    What's the problem here, exactly?

    I'm laughing at the marketing speak employed by smarmy salespeople.

    If you called them bedsits it might knock a few grand off the selling price.

    They don't look too bad to me. During my degree I did a year out in Bristol where I shared a flat with two others and they pissed me off a lot. If I could have afforded somewhere like that close to work, where I could have had my own space, then it would have been quite nice. Not having built up much clutter to move from place to place, the lack of space would have been fine.

    If things had worked out different, after graduating, I could imagine myself in one of those for a couple of years. By then I was all misty eyed and in love, so got a first floor flat with the missus. By the end of that, we were desperate for some decent outdoor space - which I think is very important to healthy living. When we bought our house, it was during a lovely summer. We bought a BBQ before a sofa!

    Hamster cage living? I can only hope they're well insulated /sound and heating etc - otherwise you'll be basically living on top of your neighbours

    Is there a lack of space in the area? Or are the developers just taking the piss by cramming in as many dwellings as possible? We are heading rapidly towards the new tenements and slums of the past.

    30m2 isnt that small, in fact I'd say it was a perfect size for a professional single person/couple, or 49m2 for a double apartment.

    I bet the later is about the same size of my Moorside flat, and I lived in that with the now wife and my 1st child without problems at all.

    I thought they said 30sq feet? Which is a lot smaller.

    I suspect in Cheadle Hulme it's potentially greenbelt or protected bits.

    The developer claims hey are 20 per cent more affordable at £210,000.
    Live in Cheshire, expect the price tag.

    The range of communal facilities includes a WiFi-ready club lounge, where residents can watch movies on a big screen, shoot pool and catch up with friends.

    Sounds like a glorified university hall of residents

    Hall free design!!! Why stop there. Could go the whole hog and live in a tent. Wall and roof free!

    for the single bedroom.

    Ive just worked out my double bedroom flat in Moorside is 45m2, so smaller than the 50m2 doubles they're selling.

    Fuck all 'micro' about them!

    Where will it all end? Micro flats now, nano flats next. Get in early before the pico and femto flats get built.

    30sq feet is about 5’x6’ - smaller than the box room in my old house, which was barely big enough for my (then) 9 month old when we moved! There’s no way you’d get living/sleeping, bathroom and kitchen into 30sq feet!
