Parking lot on housing list for college students

Atlanta, Georgia (WTNH) — Students at the Savannah College of Art and Design have created three micro-homes as part of an urban housing experiment.

But the miniature houses aren’t on your typical lawn. They’re located in a parking garage.

The structures are built within the confines of a parking space on the third floor of the SCAD parking deck in midtown Atlanta.

They’re called “SCAD Pads,” and 8 feet by 16 feet, which equals a total of 135 square feet. Each home has a sleeping and food prep area, as well as a bathroom and a lounging area.

The college claims it’s part of the small home movement, and will appeal to millennials who want to live in the center of the city.
