Personally the Tumbleweed houses make me feel claustrophobic just looking at them, though they are super cute. Im particularly bothered by the loft sleeping arragment as I hate the idea of climbing up into a tiny area to sleep. It would be cosy in winter I guess. If you were to do it you would need to build some kind of shelter/patio for rainy days- then you could cook under it outside. Moving anything that isnt absolutely neccessary outside.
But a small house, absolutely! We are in a very small 2 bedroom cottage and plan to stay here as our family grows. I want a HUGE family. Its all about layout though. We have one room as a playroom, and one is now a family closet and the other is going to be the family bedroom for now while the kids are so little. Then the play room will probably also be a bedroom for the older kids.
I reckon you should rent a caravan for a while first as its a similar set-up in a similar size. Just to get an idea of how you would be living before making such a huge investment. But if you like the tumbleweeds I say go for it. Ditch the stuff. Get really good at organization and just do it!
