- What I Love About My Small Home:
- This is actually the biggest place we've lived! It's intimate, but still roomy enough for us to have separate work spaces, which was a must when we were apartment hunting. We've got incredible light in the mornings and a side sun room/office that really helps bring the outside in. Also, the living/dining area makes a pretty mean dance floor when you clear the furniture away.
- Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space
- It all started with coffee cups -- we had a lot of them. We downsized two years ago. We downsized again this summer. When we moved into our current place, we made a rule: buy a coffee cup, give away a coffee cup. The rule has spread. We've tried to apply it to everything in the house -- it's a great way to keep the level of "stuff" in check.
