What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? My favorite element in my home is my desk. When I first moved in, I couldn't find one that was just the right size and shape for my dual monitor setup. Thanks to my Grandfather's help, I ended up building a desk that would fit into the bookshelf that was built into the wall. Without this desk, I would have had to give up my second computer screen.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? The biggest challenge with living in a small home is figuring out how to have the stuff I need, without making my place cluttered. This is where having bins and boxes has helped tremendously. I also made a bulletin board for all those scraps of paper that I want to see on a regular basis, but don't want junking up my desk. Though there are times I miss having a bedroom, I really love having a sofa sleeper. I don't have to worry about making it, and I'm not tempted to take cat naps during the day when I'm working at home. I don't have a particular resource that I use. A few of my favorite items are from a shop in New Jersey called Bucks County Dry Goods.
