A "Decent" Dwelling

I'm not sure what it says about the French real estate market that they had to recently pass a law to establish what the smallest dwelling entails that can reasonably be considered 'decent' and legal.

They break it out for you in one line "Decent housing = not less than 9m ²". (This is less than 100 square feet).

But wait, you can get around that:
"However, the decree allows the rental of a dwelling under 9m² if its volume is at least 20m3The volume calculation is done by multiplying the area by the ceiling height. For example, if you have a ceiling height of 3m for an area of ​​8m ², the housing has a volume of 24 m3. It is decent and can be rented."
This sounds ok, if you're a giraffe!

  1. You could fit a baby's crib, that's who might fit, come on C be reasonable that is real home size!!! If not a baby than a person confined to bed rest or unable to walk could use it and they could reach the little dishwasher/stove from bed.
