What I Love About My Small Home:
This is the first time in about 7 or 8 years that I've actually had an outdoor space of some kind, so I'm loving getting our patio garden up and running. I also really like the fact that we have two very small bedrooms, which allows us the luxury of having a separate office, so our bedroom can be a relaxing retreat.
Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space:
My husband and I got married six months ago and moved in together, and we both have strong design ideas, albeit different ones. It was a bit of a challenge coming up with a cohesive design that we both loved and felt at home in, but I think we're slowly getting there. We are also both people with hobbies that involve a lot of stuff (sewing and other crafts, terrarium building, sculpture casting, lots and lots of tools, musical instruments, etc), so figuring out how to fit all that into our space can be a bit tetris-like at times. We've set up zones in our house and backyard (i.e. my crafting corner and designated shelves for terrariums in the office) so our stuff is organized somewhat by hobby, which has helped quite a bit.
