Over the past few months I’ve received quite a few emails from readers asking for tips about fitting a big family into a small space. This is a topic I’m interested in as well, so I’d love to open up a post to get insights and advice from those of you who are experts on making do with a minimum amount of space (regardless of your family size). Based on the questions I’ve received from readers, here are six things we’d love to know from those of you who live in small houses:
- How big is your house/apartment? How many square feet, bedrooms and baths?
- How many people are in your family?
- What are the rooming arrangements? Who shares bedrooms with whom?
- If you could add just 150 sq. ft. of space to your house, what would you use it for?
- To what extent (if any) does the size of your home impact your decision about whether or not to have more children?
- Tell us your tips! What are some creative things you’ve done to fit everyone in and make it work?
I guess a rough guideline for what constitutes a small living space would be if it’s less than 300 sq. ft. per person, though anyone is free to chime in. Also, you don’t have to be living in that situation now: if you grew up in a small house or used to live in one, we’d love to hear from you too!
