Minimalist living is something that many people spend their whole lives trying to achieve. A good start would be to look into moving into one of these compartmentalized aluminum apartments from Japan.

The minimalist living boxes are dubbed ‘T2,’ despite their lack of affiliation with killer robots from the future. The T2 moniker given by manufacturer SUS Corporation, actually stands for Transfer Technology Unit. Inside the boxes are all the necessary modern living amenities, including a shower, kitchen, space for a bed and some minimal furniture. Since aluminum is a great conductor of heat, the box apartments are actually incredibly energy efficient and eco-friendly.

The aluminum abodes retail for roughly $29,000 USD, which is pretty cheap when you think about it. Considering it’s around the same price as a high-end minivan, it’s a pretty cheap way to get into the minimalist living craze.
