Watching CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood this past Sunday (no, I am not yet a Senior Citizen, although I am set in my ways), I was happy to hear that the average house size has gone from an average of 2,600 at beginning of 2008 to a more sensible 2,400 currently.
I am hoping to go even smaller! I have always had a "thing" for small living spaces. My dream is to get a Tumbleweed Tiny House that I can clean in 10 minutes, freeing me up for other things like Twitter, blogging, making paintings that "only a family member would love," testing toilets and bounce juggling by myself once my son is at college (so sad!)....This is the size I am considering:
117 sq feet should do the trick! And I just noticed that it comes with a red door!! I absolutely <3 red doors! I painted ours red last year. And, 5 coats of paint later, it is relatively easy to spot our house from the street!
p.s. An observant Twitterer has wisely commented on the rather steep price tag! (her exact wording in reference to the pricing was "WTH!") My plan is to have MB "slap" one together for us, our own design, with red door and skylight and tiny pantry for the cheese balls.
