There are times I amuse myself by browsing through some articles on quirky homes. I like to see the unusual things people come up.
A lot of the small homes are tiny. Those don't really appeal to me. The bed may be a loft over the kitchen area. That may have worked when I was young and agile, but right now my knees would raise a real stink if I attempted to make a regular trek up a ladder.
It would also be uncomfortable if a midnight run was required to visit the "facilities," which are often not noted in some of the pictures. So where do you go when you need to go? I wouldn't like a midnight run outside when nature comes calling my name.
Okay, so I'm a bit wimpy. So be it. But where do you put the card table when you want to work a nice 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle (or larger)? That's something I really enjoy when the weather outside gets more than frightful.
You certainly would have no place to accommodate visiting relatives. Now, I know there are times that's a good thing. But I do have some that brighten my day when I see them. I want them to feel welcome, no doubt about it, but sitting in one another's laps may be a tad too much.
No, I'm not a McMansion candidate. I certainly don't need 3,000 square feet to make my nest. But I do want more than a 64 or 80 square foot home.
What about you? Are you a "tiny to the max" kind of person, or one who wants quantity to the max? Or perhaps, like me, somewhere closer to the middle? I'd like to know.
