we have a one bedroom house. We have 2 kids (1 and 4), plus dh and myself, but now we have 3 kids (my 14 yr niece is living with us) usually, my niece is on the pullout, and dh, myself, and our 2 are in a queen bed in the one bedroom. Sometmes dh sleeps on the couch, and me and all the kids are in the bed. we love it here, but my niece is not in the same mindset as my family and her stuff sorta piles and spills everywhere...she isn't a 'small living' kinda...

But we have an 800 sqft home (for 5 people right now!) but a huge lot....room for the kids to learn about their trees, grow their own garden, climb and run in the sun or the snow. A smaller space inside to avoid collecting and storing junk...I just love it. So for us, we vote for small house, big yard.
