Mom, dad, baby live happily in 380 square feet

November 11, 2009 |  9:32 am


What you see above is most of the home that Kelly Breslin and Ryan Conder share with their 9-month-old son, Thurston. The couple and their baby live contentedly in a 380-square-foot, 1950s Echo Park home. What's their secret to sharing such close quarters harmoniously? Cool decor, spending a lot of time outside and keeping in mind that cheap rent means that Breslin can stay home with her son. A definite bonus. For now, the family shares the bed, and Breslin tells writer David A. Keeps that she's found that babies don't need much -- just diapers, a place to change them, and boobs.
