What is the advantage of SMALL? I like it because it is cute and cozy, the street that we live on is also kind of small and hidden. A house this size is easier to wrap your mind around, easier to clean, easier to furnish, probably better for the environment, cheaper to maintain. We bought this place over other places that were larger because it felt good to be in, that's what's important.

What's your favorite resource for your home?

Ikea, clearly, but I try to find thrift store bargains as well. Also a lot of online resources.

What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home?

My favorite element is the backporch/back yard. They are both sort of private and in the summer it seems to add a little room to an otherwise small dwelling small house
