Stephanie Williams, a law firm clerk, and her live-in boyfriend Celestian Rince, an administrative assistant at a property management company, are among those people who are choosing to live small.

Call them studios, bachelor pads, or the slightly more sophisticated sounding “one-bedroom suites” but they are one and the same — micro dwellings with not much room to swing a cat in.

De Ruiter, a PhD candidate studying bio-energy and carbon management, splits his time between Pender Island and Prince George, where the university is located. He paid $35,000 for the property and spent another $8,200 to build his house. “One of the original reasonings for this was place stability. So if everything goes wrong in my life, all I have to do is basically pay my property taxes and I own everything outright,” de Ruiter told Huffington Post. “Stability to me is also sustainability. Because it means we are not needing to forever chase resources.”

The grad student used lots of recycled materials for the project, including the railings made from wood found on the property and hardwood floors from Habitat For Humanity. For heating and electric, de Ruiter’s neighbors graciously let him run a single power cord up to his home, powering his mini-fridge, two lightbulbs and an electric heater. For showers, he takes a 15-minute walk to the marina/pub downtown.
