However, I do LOVE reading the entries that come in because I so rarely see condos and apartments that are as small as mine. In fact, from the sizes of places I have seen during this contest, my place is PALATIAL! I find living in such a small home to be such a challenge because homes in magazines and TV shows are just so much bigger. I will see articles for "decorating a small home" and then laugh when I realize they are covering a space more than twice as large as mine!
Now, don't get me wrong, I love my small condo and how affordable it is when living on only one income (and when you are the type who loves to travel and go shopping!). But it does get discouraging feeling like I'm the only mini-home owner out there! Hence why I love the contest- it allows me to find all sorts of other tiny homes and compare what I have done to theirs (and compare layouts; the smallest wall change can make a huge difference in a micro-condo).
Here are some of my favourites from this year in the teeny-tiny category:
|Amy: 175 sq ft|
|Tommy: 374 sq ft|
|Leslie: 300 sq ft|
|Bethany Kay: 305 sq ft|
|Nicole: 370 sq ft|
I also LOVED this tiny puzzle of a home in the international category- could you live here?
|Silvana- 165 sq ft|
Do you follow the contest for inspiration? Have you ever entered??
