As Shane and I scoure the MLS for homes, I keep wondering how big of a house we need. Right now we are in a 4 bedroom with a study and it really fits our needs. I would love a basement, but that isn't really a Boise thing. We want to have another baby next year. Will Collin and Lydia share a room so we can keep a guest room? Do we put the crib in the guest room? Should we look into getting a 5 bedroom? That seems excessive for only having 3 kids, but maybe that's the way to go. This will be our home for a long time.
For the first two years of marriage, Shane and I lived in a 350 sq foot basement apartment. We LOVED it. 7 foot ceilings, tiny bedroom, the mini loveseat barely fit the two of us. It was the perfect cozy love shack. We paid $340 a month and that included utilities. We talk about it longingly now. The small set of dishes. Our clothes in boxes under the bed. Having to take down the kitchen table so we could fit in a full size Christmas tree.
My friend April shared this video on her blog and it made me wonder how little I might be able to get by with. Of course, would I want to? This space wouldn't even hold my food storage and wrapping supplies.
Would you be willing to try it?
