STUFF: Small Living: 196 Square Feet Track House

STUFF: 196 Square Feet Living

Lately, we’ve been doing a lot of thinking, re-thinking, designing, and re-thinking of our someday Modern Farmhouse. We love looking at small spaces, and collecting ideas on how to create a home that is both pretty and functional. For us, good design means it has to work. And with our growing family, a VERY large extended family, and our love to entertain it has been hard figuring out how space we really need?

As we look into all of the possibilities it’s always fun to strip living down to it’s simplest form. How much space does a family of 2, 3, or 4 really need to function?

How about 196 square feet?!

As designers we are constantly challenged to break down complex ideas, visions, and dreams, into their purest, most simplest form. This Track House definitely does just that. Now, this doesn’t mean Cale and I will be selling all our processions, but the idea of how small is too small is definitely up for debate. The bigger the house the more expense it is to build and maintain, not to mention what it does to the environment around it. So the question of the day is how small is too small? What are we REALLY willing to live without? If we breakdown the form and function of our family structure, what does it look like? How does it move? How much space do we really need to live a comfortable and happy life?
