Again, outside the obstacles and the overhead of the tools, the area is insignificant. It takes perhaps 30 seconds to wash the bathroom floor, no matter what size it is. It takes significantly more time to clean around the commode, though even that is small compared to other areas.
We didn't always have this much space either, which is perhaps why we enjoy it now. I don't want anything bigger, though. We did look at a couple of 3500ft^2 houses. I nixxed them. I had no idea what we'd put in the space. ;-)
Alabama, but we make up for the mild winters with the AC in the summer. It's still cheap compared to the other expenses of owning a house.
Certainly. That's why they make big houses, small houses, and I suppose someone out there even likes condos. ;-)
