We rent a duplex (connected to the other side only by the carport roof) that's about 725 square feet. Our bedroom is perfect--it fits a king size bed and a twin size bed foot-to-side perfectly, filling the whole back wall and most of the side walls and leaving space to get to the bureau and the tiny closet. Under DD's bed is a giant suitcase and 2 ikea underbed boxes to hold extra blankets and sheets. Our 2nd bedroom is the office/sewing room. It's a big L of desks and then a shelving unit on the back wall. We've put shelves up everywhere we can but still have boxes under our desk from our move a month ago. We have one bathroom---it's tiny, the diaper pail sits in the shower all day and goes in the hallway when we shower. Our living room/dining room is very nicely proportioned. Our kitchen is smallish but we've found a place for everything, our portable dishwasher is in front of the window and the frige overlaps the window a bit as well. We have a great storage room with the stacked W/D, water heater, and shelves up to the cieling everywhere. We keep tools, cleaning stuff, the vacuum, wine, platters, the blender and waffle maker and kitchen things we don't need often out there. It's very organized! We love the space and the small size is fine as long as the layout is good. Unfortunately we have 8 boxes of books that haven't found yet in the month we've lived here. We'll work on that soon I hope!
