- Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space
- There have been a few challenges living in a small house. One has been the lack of a linen closet. I wish very much that this house had one since the little closet space it has needs to be devoted to clothes. As a result, all of my linens are stored in the trunk at the foot of my bed instead. In addition, having no dishwasher in the kitchen has not been ideal. There’s not even a very good spot to install a small one. As far as that goes I’ve had to learn to appreciate the dish rack as part of the “vintage charm “of the house.
