I love the light and airy feel of the house. We picked the light walls and diagonal check floor throughout the downstairs for this purpose. I think this makes the house seem much bigger! I also love that we designed and built the house on a very small budget. We had to be creative and resourceful, but after being in the house for four years, there is not much that I would change!
Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space:
Controlling clutter is our biggest challenge. I am constantly rearranging cabinets, and in the two closets we have to find the best way to use the storage space. I also use hooks and baskets to keep things organized. The truth is that I find our small home much less overwhelming than a larger space. The things you choose to bring in are the things that you love.
