What is the advantage of SMALL? Less baggage, literally and physically. We moved from 850 sq ft and we got rid of SO much. I just feel lighter now and I always equate the state of my home with the state of my mind...

What is the advantage of SMALL? CONT'D

...It's nice to know we could move and it would be easy (as easy as moving gets anyway).

What's your favorite resource for your home?

Thrift stores, flea markets and curbs. My favorite pieces of furniture were found on the curb.

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

The "bedroom." The windows get tons of light and since the bed is right up against them there's always a nice breeze, on weekends I can just lay there and watch the clouds go over the houses...and our cat can be found there sunning herself.
