Favourite Small Living Home Chosen

The vote is in and the favourite home for my Small Home Living Series was House #3.
 Many of you could not make a decision on a favourite because you liked certain elements in all of them.
Me, too!
But unanimously, Small Living Home #3 was chosen as the favourite. 
 And I believe from your remarks that the porch seemed to be the clincher for most of you....
along with its staircase. 
My own personal favourite was Small Living House #1.
There wasn't anything that I didn't like about this home!

If I had to choose what sealed the deal for me, it would have to be the loft.
As a mother of three sons myself (and a lovely daughter), I could visualise my own three boys having shared this space while they were growing up.
There would've been a lot of noise below from all of their wrestling, but still I'm sure that I could've lived with it! 
Although my Small Home Living Series is complete for now, I do want to give a shout out to another tiny house that I stumbled upon.
This small home is owned by the Berzin family and I think you will enjoy their story and how they came to the decision to live in a tiny home themselves.
It's interesting...
At 8:30 AM this morning it is 40F or -5C here and the sun is shining.
Since last week nearly every day was cool, dreary, and rainy the sunshine is a very welcome surprise.
I hope this first day of the week is a good one for you too!



  1. I'm catching up after 4 days out of town, I missed the vote, but I still need to see the last house. They were all beautiful and I can see how the added living space of a porch might seal the deal as to why this one would be the favorite!

  2. House # 3 is certainly the most livable to me, but I don't think I could live in a house that small. I've lived in a 928 sf house but I was single at the time and it fit just right.

  3. I missed the vote, I am going back to see house number 3.
    But I have a feeling number 3 would have been my favorite. :-)

  4. I missed the vote too. Sorry. But my favorite was #2. Love that place. I could move right in. I like all the light, white everything to keep it from looking cluttered. But I do like the stairway and baskets in the winner. These are SO FUN!

  5. It's amazing at how much stuff we collect, buy and throw out!

    Living in our small cottage, I have learned to be content. What a great feeling and you can't buy that!

  6. So cute.
    I missed the vote too, and need to go back and see number 3 :)

    The weather sounds perfect where you are. Brisk and Fall-ish!

    Smiles :)

  7. I've always been so intrigued by small space living. Each of the homes made such great use of their limited space.

  8. I have enjoyed this series! I will eventually resort to small space living when they cart me off to an assisted living center, LOL.

  9. Yup House # 3 was it for me love the butcher block counter tops to ! Thanks for sharing , Have a good week !

  10. I love the third house, too...the high ceilings make it feel much bigger. The curb appeal is wonderful, too!

  11. It's nice to see how they make the best use of space. We are living in a house about half the size of our last one. I have shelves.... everywhere! lol Enjoy your week my friend! Hugs!

  12. I agree. They are all winners.

  13. Kimberly,

    There all perfect homes!!!

    Weather is cooling here, expecting another cold front to come in with lot's of rain.

  14. Each home had its own delights, and the next one on your list, the Berzin Family, a story to inspire everyone, no matter their age, financial position, family, or career. I admired, and enjoyed their story, and amazed at how they managed it all. Thanks for sharing so much with us, Hugs, Jean.

  15. The loft in that one is truly excellent.

  16. Love the loft too.
    They are all very cool.
    Woolie Hugs

  17. I like one and three also..but seriously doubt I could ever downsize THAT much! I do like all the cubbie holes and nooks where extra "stuff" can be stored.

  18. It's definitely a beauty! Gotta have a porch!!
