Tiny House Discouragement :(
Hello all! I'm just looking for a little boost from someone who lives in a really small house. Ours is a cape cod cottage, about 1,200 sq ft. with two tiny bedrooms (currently den and office) and the master bedroom upstairs in the attic, with one tiny bath (5'/6.5') on the main floor. It is just the two of us and right now it fits us perfectly, but we do want to have one or two kids eventually.
I am one of those people that gets really really attached to where I live. We bought this house because we liked the area and it was virtually our only option to get out of our apartment. We viewed it as a starter house, which it really is, but now that I've lived here a while I really don't think I could move out. There is no space on either side of us or in back to build any additions in the future, but we are considering a long dormer in the back of the A-frame second story to give us a little more room. So we're really having to decide if this is going to be where we stay in order to justify the expense.
I don't know anyone living in a smaller house than we are, and I get the idea that a lot of people think it's impossible to raise a family in one this size, I know it can be done, but I'm not sure if I'm just forcing the issue because I love my house or if I need to be more open to change...
