How Big Can “Small” Be?

Learning  big from small is one of the first lessons in life.  In books as children we learn to identify the large elephant from the tiny mouse.  We wonder in awe at the larger things in life:  whales, skyscrapers, the pyramids.  The miniscule often get overlooked. The small, not as interesting because it seems easy to create or not as complicated.

Those of you living in teeny-tiny spaces (or ones you perceive that way) know the truth:  the small and minute are often the much more complicated and thought-provoking spaces to live in.    I live in a small space– with my husband, son, daughter,  a baby on the way, anda black lab mutt.  It is an endless cycle to try to keep the home clean/organized/functional/and roomy– and this my platform to share and hopefully gain some advice or new and fresh ideas.

Welcome to the Cottage

I live in a small home.  I know small is not a word that most of America is familiar with, but here, where I live, it is small.  Small and cute.  I hate the word cute.  My house is not a puppy.

If you haven’t guessed, my house is 968 square feet.  4 people live in this house.  We have one, 30-year-old bathroom.   Thankfully, we have no pets.

I know New Yorker’s live in closer quarters. That to many, 968 may feel large.  And to so many more people out there, it is small. 

My goal for this blog is to share with you my secrets and ideas on small space living.  It is possible– even without a double sink in the bathroom.

Welcome to 968.
