Seriously, how can anyone comfortably get up to any shenanigans in that bed? It's practically on the ceiling.

It's small but very cozy! I love it!

That bed is *terrifying* with its lack of rails. As someone who tosses and turns and rolls all over the place when I sleep, I would roll right out of that bed and onto the floor, possibly breaking several bones.

My Italian people always know how to decorate and NEVER make a room look too busy with colors or too bland and average. I'm very proud of his mind. Ciao. Frank (NYC)

How do you have sex inn that loft bed??? New Yorkers really do live in shoe boxes... It looks great but I wonder what's the price for that box.SMH

Celebate & going to live alone forever. Can't come home drunk, can't bring a woman home, they would kill themselves trying to get into bed...... And when someone mentions how small their place is that many times? They are not happy about it.

This is really one of the nicest small living areas I've come across. Such attention to detail. I feels warm and homey. I will however agree with those who commented on no guard rail for the bed-I'd definitely fall out :-)

The Joyful Eye (2 years ago)
So mellow and cozy, lovely tree top view, charming little nest. Love the textured brick wall by the steps. I think I would put a side rail on the bed. The foot stool is very punny :) I think the bathroom is around the corner from the sofa.
Sandy Sanzenbacher (2 years ago)
I love how you have made a space for everything and how you made the bed and kitchen counters that works for you. Great job.
nju_90 (2 years ago)
I like the bed solution :D
Taps fan (2 years ago)
wonderful space, warm, eclectic, I love that, it makes the space so interesting and inviting. I could live there very easily! good question though, where's the bathroom? thanks for the video!!
Taps fan (2 years ago)
okay, approximately how many questions have you answered about the bathroom, or lack of? I think I'm still missing something... But you are pretty damn funny!
Daniel LiCalzi (2 years ago)
the bathroom is in the bathroom ?

Like the shoe-table! So creative :) most people live in small spaces are designers. I love small spaces too and I'm also creative...

living over 9 years in nice place like that without a bathroom !!!!

Beautiful! Where's your bathroom?
Daniel LiCalzi (2 years ago)
hmmm good question! i'm still looking for it.. I'll let you know when I find it!
Sourabh Jain (2 years ago)

I want a desk version -- tensor or freestanding -- of that measuring tape light. Gorgeous and brilliant. At first I thought the markings were from a dial. I really love the steps to the sleeping loft. The way the bottom step allows descent away from the wall is brilliant. Brilliance in every aspect from the drawers and doors to the economy of wood types and finishes.
Daniel LiCalzi (2 years ago)
I might have some shades laying around.. could potentially make you one if I do!

Sherry Armstrong (2 years ago)
this is so amazing , so warm and cozy .... just one Question when your sleeping don't you worry bout rolling over and falling on the floor ?
Daniel LiCalzi (2 years ago)
a pillow on the ledge side did the trick...

I've slept in a loft bed before and honestly it's not a problem! Your subconscious knows to keep away from the edge

Daniel LiCalzi as a person in business you never know who might be a potential customer. Keep in mind that many people are emotional shoppers. Being a smartass does nothing for the feel good crowd 😉 All the best on your future endeavours.

why are there price tags on some of your stuff?
slaiyfershin (2 years ago)
You don't have to live in a small home to be space efficient and creative. It's just a romanticizing of a concept that is really not unique to small houses. Just that people get pushed by the need to make the home space efficient when it's smaller and don't bother to do it when in a normal sized house. Now imagine if you apply this concept for every room in your normal sized house!
Sourabh Jain (2 years ago)
you are saying right we can make normal size houses so damn efficient and use the spaces perfectly if we wish so.
seywhut2985 (2 years ago)
He sure is gorgeous but that place is just too small. However it appears to be much more open and better natural light than others I have seen.
Taps fan (2 years ago)
he is quite lovely, but then all males, I'm just going out on a limb and assuming there are also females, from Jupiter are quite famous for their beauty...😉

what did they do?!
Green Willow (2 years ago)
Wonderful apartment!! I love the tree house bed and all the extra space for storage and books underneath. So beautifully and artistically (but minimally) decorated and organized. It has such a clean and comfortable and peaceful feel to it. No clutter anywhere. You can really see how meticulously planned every inch of it is. Also love the idea of grass to collect the air conditioner drippings. So clever. But please put up a bar on that amazing bed so you don't fall out and get hurt!

I hate small apartments, but Daniel has made great use of his space and created someting that is not only very useable and functional, but also looks great.

I LOVE this guys place and design!
meridian FX (3 years ago)
I love this design and the ambiance is perfect! Would love to see the bathroom area and closet spaces. Also, it would be nice if these videos started at the entrance to these little homes. If anyone knows another video of this particular space with more details, I'd be much obliged if you would hook me up :o)
yoyoheads (3 years ago)
+meridian FX I recommend Kirsten Dirksen's channel. She has many videos of small space designs that are far more detailed (construction, costs etc). You're bound to find one similar to this one.

Cozy and a little bit british. So nice.
Alice (3 years ago)
The bed up high is a great idea, ive always thought there's loads of high space wasted. Did you attach the bed to the ceiling yourself ( how can I do this with a concrete ceiling)?
Alice (3 years ago)
Daniel LiCalzi (3 years ago)
+pp op I cut away the sheet-rock so I was sure to hit the stud. For concrete I would use a 3/8" 316 ss wedge anchor. You'll have to hammer drill a hole in the ceiling though...
CienGaviotas (3 years ago)
I dont know, but everytime i see the loft beds i imagine myself rolling off the side and probably killing myself because i move so much in my sleep

+Manda Hanger .......yea cool guy. But, why does every one always say square foot. Its square feet since its more than one foot. LOL
dme3o (3 years ago)
I've seen a lot of these and really inspired to do this BUT i was wonering if these guys actually "Own" these apartments?  It would be such a waste if they had to move!  :(

+Daniel LiCalzi The new tenants must of been so happy n relieved to have space saving modifications!
Fonzi79 (3 years ago)
+Daniel LiCalzi yes do one! I bet it looks awesome!!!!!!
Daniel LiCalzi (3 years ago)
Not yet but good idea! Maybe I'll do one!
Fonzi79 (3 years ago)
+Daniel LiCalzi Is there a video of your new place design?
Daniel LiCalzi (3 years ago)
+dme3o nope didn't own it. but lived there for quite a while... 12 years... traded the bed and modifications to the landlord for few months free rent

Gregory Burcz (3 years ago)
How did you build this loft?  That looks awesome, I'm moving into a 400 square foot place and am looking for a loft build.
Daniel LiCalzi (3 years ago)
+Gregory Burcz I had a friend with a metal shop let me borrow the shot. Designed it in solidworks..
Johnnyrising (3 years ago)
I love it!!! You have me so many cool ideas... Thanx :)
treehouseinparadise (3 years ago)
Hi Daniel.  Just found your video.  Very cool.  I also love being up in the trees and love to find ideas for every nook and cranny.  You're very creative.  Keep up the good work.

yea so no toilet? no shower? wth
Sielor Stout (3 years ago)
This is beautiful!
Grannieannie F (3 years ago)
Very tastefully done. I would have put a railing up (if mine) to keep from falling out of the bed. Nice sized bathroom for such a small space. Why not just use real grass in a tray for the A/C?
Cherry (3 years ago)
That's really clever and beautiful.   I'm worried about you rolling out of bed, though.    The footstool is ugly, but I love it. 
pyricexhoarder (3 years ago)
no bathroom?
Yuel Cruz (3 years ago)
Just WOW!
T momenat (3 years ago)
Thank you for this video and the ideas! Very nice really. I'm thinking of making this bed structure alone... what holds it mostly? is it somehow in the wall too...?
MsOldfart1 (3 years ago)
very well done sir.
Preston Feivor (3 years ago)
I LOVE the use of the space you have, it's amazing what you did with it!!! I'm actually looking into going to Pratt as well! hopefully for Illustration of Painting! but i'm just not sure how to afford it really...any thoughts on how you liked the school and if it was worth it? thanks! :)
