Let's assume you can have a couple outbuildings up to the same size as this main house (sheds, outdoor kitchen, greenhouse, anything you like). What would be your minimum sqft for a home? I've seen pics of a nice 80 sqft cabin someone lived in before, I don't think I'd like that small a space though. What would be your minimum size in a main building of your home, and how many are in your family?
On our land I'm actually considering building my husband's workshop first (150sqft with a loft), moving into the workshop, building a greenhouse/bathhouse (another 120sqft), and then building the big house (1200sqft) the next year. We're a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids that'll be ages 5 and 9 at the start of this). Not sure if I can sell DH on the idea but I think the kids and I could do it with no problem for a year.
