What's small to you?
I love discovering new blogs and usually end up staying up way too late reading them, since there are so many good ones out there. Last week I was looking at some blogs about how to make your space feel bigger and what to do with a small home so it doesn't feel so small. The blogger went on to say if she can host a large family party at her house then anyone can and also talked about how at times she felt embarrassed about her small home. I kept reading most of the tips she gave were decent, but not for us since most involved major construction. Then at one point she mentioned the size of her home, 1800sq ft and I was in shock. Is it just me, but that does not constitute a small home. I would say an average size home by us is 1400sq ft or so. Maybe it just depends on where you live, I'm not sure really but where we live 1800sq ft would be considered a good size, maybe even large. I guess in the end I was just annoyed because I wasn't sure how she could have a whole blog about small living when her house was that size some people even made comments about that, so I know I'm not alone but I didn't want to leave anything negative, so at that point I just stopped reading it. Who knows, maybe where she is from that is small. When I talk about our house being small I feel it truly is at 968sq ft. I guess I was just wondering in other areas what is an average size home or what do you consider small?
