How small do you think you could go?
we are in a 700sq ft appt right now and honestly I think it's too big. (Me, dh and dd 5mo).
But it really depends on what you need. For example, I feel that our living room is wasted space. Our bedroom is so big, we do all our entertaining, school and living in there. I would rather have a bigger kitchen and take out the living room. The way your space is set up is going to dictate how much overall you need.
Currently, we're looking for a house in the 800-1200sq ft range, but one of my sisters wants to rent a room.
