    that top pic is just an autrocity, And you don't put over stuffed furniture in a small space!!! bleech... the architect should be ashamed.

    otherwise if it's well done small spaces can be quite nice.

    I think I'd have to put myself on a 900 calorie a day restriction if I lived there.

    It can be yours with a slight commitment of 17K a month for 30 years!

    But with a few double mortgage payments a year...

    That may be why it is my dream house...hehehehehehe

    Hell, for half that I could get my dream home in Queen Village that's about 50 times bigger.

    I do love smaller places. When I moved to fishtown, I dreaded moving into a smaller place. Now, I couldn't even imagine living in a large place single, mainly because the of the monthly swiffer bill alone.

    For anyone interested in this topic, google the term spite house. It's hilarious-a lot of small properties were built for various reasons-often spite.
