I'm glad they've made it work for them. It just doesn't seem realistic for anyone who is not relatively young and in the peak of health. I may be a party pooper, but this isn't sustainable or even possible for people with children, people with special needs, people with special needs children, elderly people (assuming a reasonably first-world living standard). They love it, that's cool, and I can certainly praise their commitment to their idea.

I could definitely spend a week indoors, even in my 680 sq ft. apartment, just fine. Assuming the gas worked for cooking, I'd have a blast making food, and if the electricity works, then I could definitely be alone for 7-10 days no problem. :-) The great thing about living in an apartment building is that I wouldn't even have to go outside to visit friends!

It's interesting that they decided to do this after starting a family, because I'd almost-literally give my first-born child for a 3-bedroom condo in Brooklyn!

Love, love what they've done with the space, although I wish they'd paint some walls. I'm personally not a fan of the institution-white look everywhere.

Who's in for the House Hunters drinking game?! If AT made a post of that, it would go through the (non-granite countertop) roof!

My biggest peeve: people who blather on about "space for entertaining". It will only be house-dwellers there 90% of the time! Who cares if you can "talk with guests" while cooking? They're eating maybe 2 meals out of the 16 you prepare at home.

I would slip, fall, and break my neck in under 3 days. It's clever and a fascinating sight, but how on Earth did this meet any safety standards?

What is the paint color? I love that blue! (and the puppy, too!)

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! I'm an adult and I would happily reside in that room. In fact, that ceiling paint color is the color I've wanted for my new bedroom.
