Do you use the front door as an entrance?
DH and I purchased our first home in August of '05. It's a 980 s.f. cottage with 3 bedrooms. We are thoroughly enjoying every minute of home ownership. I'm so glad I finally found a forum for small homes. It seems a lot of home forums (here or elsewhere) attract those with 3-4000 s.f. homes and we just can't relate.
So, my question...do you use the front door as your primary entrance? We have the front door, a side door (opens to a bedroom), and a laundry room door. I would prefer that the living room be set up in the back bedroom (it's the largest room in the house) and that people use the side door, but DH insists that would be really weird. I say, if we attached the front and side porches, it wouldn't be weird at all. What's your opinion?
I'm attaching a link to our home photos and I'll answer any questions you have. Please keep in mind these photos are from when we first moved in. A LOT has changed since then with the inside of the house.
