816 sq ft of living space. A 24X28 main house, plus a 12x12 room added off the side. On a crawlspace. We also have a screened 8x24 porch off the back, and a 10x24 deck off the front. We're on about 5 acres of my family's property, about 1 of which is ours. We have a good size unattached 2 car garage which is where we store our tractor, tools, has our pump room, and is just general storage. The whole upstairs is attic storage, but outside access only via an extension ladder and the porch roof.
There are 4 of us, plus 6 indoor/outdoor cats, & 4 outdoor only rabbits.
I love my small house too. It is a lot easier to clean than the 2 story 1600 sq ft one we owned before.
Ideally though, we will turn the screen porch into a finished 8x24 room off the back of the house sometime in the next year or two. It will become and entry, coat closet, washroom, office, classroom, playroom. This will allow us to shuffle stuff around in the main part of the house. We really need to add at least a small amount of counter space. I literally have about 4 ft of counter space total to work with. That's my only real complaint about our small house!
