I loved this reframe, Viewpoint Zero. Thank you!
I expect that most of our square footage woes are due to the HORRIFIC job we have done at downsizing to date. It was quite a feat to move out of the rest of the house. But I think we still have all the gear and stuff of living in thousands of square feet. Just piled up every wall and on every inch of available floor space.
It will be fun to approach this from a different angle. To think about designing our living space and life within a square footage constraint. I think we got a little desperate for money which made options harder to come by. But likely these were just excuses for not wanting to get rid of all the shit we have amassed that we really don’t need. :)
