Are you comfortable with the size of your house?
In developed countries family size has been generally shrinking, in some countries family homes have grown in size, notably in the United States where the average size of new single family homes grew from 1,780 square feet in 1978 to 2,479 square feet in 2007.
I think that is crazy. There are so many people paying to heat rooms that they never use or many uses once every blue moon all as a status symbol or because they "need" the room. When my grandmother was a child no one would have ever thought that she "needed" her own room. They lived in a farm house with her parents and 12 brothers and sisters. They only needed 3 bedrooms. One for the boys, one for the girls and one for the parents.
The advantages of a small home exceed basic economics; such houses change the way people live and are attractive for people who want to lead a less cluttered and complicated life.
Why do people think they need so much more room now then they did 100 years ago?
Blessings of a small place...
1. Fewer places for things to get lost.
2. You can sweep quicker
3. The heating bill is lower.
4. No room for furniture you can't afford anyway.
5. Families spend more time togetherWhat Do You Think?
