What I Love About My Small Home:
I love the amount of windows in our home, all of which are original to the 1954 house. As many other small home dwellers have noted, having lots of natural light is great for making small places seem spacious.

Seeing as our home is a single family house with a front yard, back yard, and a garage we are fortunate to have plenty of storage space and outdoor areas to expand the living areas. Having a full dining area in the backyard makes our relatively small kitchen seem huge.

And lastly, I love the fact that cleaning a smaller house is so much easier! I never take for granted that I can clean every baseboard in the entire house in less than a half an hour.:)
Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space
As I mentioned before, having a garage and outdoor space makes living in a small home very easy. We feel that there is plenty of storage space and room to grow with our home.

The only challenge that we've come across in the last year since purchasing this home is learning to be patient when selecting furniture. It was strange adapting to the fact that even though something looks tiny on a furniture showroom floor it's probably going to look huge in a 750 square foot house! Now we always bring tape measures. :)

We've also learned to be selective buyers and only keep necessities or items that hold sentimental value.

Thanks!
