“That would be smaller than my garage!!”
I was sharing with some friends my dream of moving into 400 square feet last night. I paced out their living room to show the woman about the size house I want. Standing in that room, I could very much see 400 square feet working fairly well for me. Very open floor plan, built in furniture, bed not in a room but in a “closet” with folding doors so it could be part of the floor plan at night and shut off during the day, a kitchen on one end, a small bath… I’m excited about the possibility.
This couple knows some people who live or have lived in a fifth wheel. They know someone who’s lived off the grid. The man was excited about the possibilities. It’s not that he’d want to live that way himself, but the challenge of finding a way to make it work. It is, in a way, for me too. Just a challenge. At the same time, I can see myself living happily that way. I started looking for land the other day. Maybe, just maybe, this could work.
