Barb contacted me the other day about some issues that have not been discussed here at the Tiny House Blog. Here is what Barb had to say plus some questions she had to ask…
We are a retired couple in the process of adopting a family of four or five children. We need more space than most of the one bedrooms we see here, but still prefer the objectives of simple and small living.
Barb has come up with a few questions and would enjoy your responses as to what you are doing or are considering doing when faced with this same challenge.
- What are other families doing to downsize?
- What is a realistic square footage need per person? If one person can live in 100 square feet, does that mean a family of four can live in 400 square feet?
- What things are necessary in a home? What things can we live without in order to simplify life?
- Where is the dividing line between reality living and unrealistic expectations?
Please use the comment section to respond to these questions, also feel free to add any question of your own pertaining to this problem. Thank you and I look forward to your responses.
