What is your favorite element of your Small & Cool home? That it's small! I haven't once felt like I don't have enough room. I also found some pretty rad Craigslist finds along the way that I can't live without now!

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? In 2008, after living in Washington, DC for 6 years, I packed up everything that was really important to me and drove across the country to Seattle for a new job. Making my life fit into a 5'x8' trailer was a huge lesson in 'editing', but when I moved into my Seattle apartment, I didn't have a bunch of stuff I didn't need. I also forced myself to take time finding furniture I really liked, instead of just filling the space as soon as I could.
