- Wedding: May 2013 - Pavilion overlooking golf course scenery, reception at banquet hall
I was just thinking last night about how happy I am with our new house. It is 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath. Downstairs there is a private master bedroom and master bathroom for us, and a half bath for day-time guests off the living/kitchen. Upstairs there is a guest bedroom with adjoining bathroom, and the 3rd bedroom we’ve turned into a “hobby room” with my sewing stuff and his music stuff.
It is perfect for us as a young couple with no kids, but if we decide to have 1 or 2 they will have their own rooms with jack-and-jill bath between them, and there will be a space for a “play” area right outside their rooms – the loft area overlooking the living room.
My house is 1962 sqft and it is just the right size for us.

@aggie2010: Your house sounds so much like mine lol! Same size, and number of bedrooms/bathrooms. It’s perfect for my husband and I.

Ours is 2100 sq ft + the basement (not included in the count, for some reason). It’s a 3 bed, 3.5 bath house, and the perfect size for us now, and to grow into a bit when we decide to have children.

We just bought a house at 3321 square feet. Although it has 5 bedrooms, 4 baths…it doesn’t feel THAT big. None of it is open concept – it still has a very “cottagey” feel, which is what we were going for.
We don’t have any kids yet, but I’m 6 months pregnant. We’ll see how annoying having that big of a house is when I’m going up flights of stairs with a newborn just to grab one thing!

Our apartment is 1300 square feet. We have two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, den, and kitchen. I wish our kitchen was slightly larger but overall I think it’s the perfect size for us right now.

Our house is 1750 sq ft plus basement. 4 bedrooms and 1.5 baths. And it’s too big for just the two of us right now. There are a few rooms that we don’t use at all right now and it’s just extra space to clean. But we plan on being in this house for a looooong time so we specifically bought it to fix up and grow into.

My Our house is 982 sqft. With two adults, a large dog, two cats, his music gear and my yarn business, it’s WAY too small. We need at least double the space and we plan on having kids in the next couple years, so it’s time to make a plan to build on, or build over! Ideal is 4 br/3 bath & a garage apartment for our hobbies or to rent out.

1462 sq ft, 3 bed/2 bath ranch. Neither of us likes to keep a lot of “stuff” in the house, so it still feels like a ton of space. Totally perfect for us. 🙂

- Wedding: November 2013 - St. Augustine Beach, FL
We have a 950 sq ft 2 bedroom, 1 bath flat in a quadplex within walking distance of downtown. It’s perfect for our current needs and will work when we have a baby next year because we can convert the office/guestroom into a nursery. However, we plan to move out of downtown once our child is old enough to start Kindergarten because the suburban school districts are better. We will likely look for a three bedroom house at that time so we can have an office/guestroom again.

@aggie2010: We have a 1 bedroom, 2 bath in Manhattan. Everyone who visits me from the midwest thinks it is tiny, but we think it is great and are just thrilled to have the two bathrooms! Lol!

We have 1100 sqft, 2 bedroom, 1 bath and it’s way too small for three people. We need on more bath and more storage space but it’s functional. The house were planning (waiting on a land offer) is 1400 sqft, one bedroom, two bath, with a loft office space. The kids will be grown and all gone next year so we won’t need the extra bedrooms. The biggest addition will be the shop which will get all these damn tools out of my house giving me back much needed storage space.

My flat is 32 square metres, which translates to roughly 345 square feet. I lovingly call it my “no bedroom apartment” – it’s an open concept loft and I separated my sleeping area from the rest of the flat with my wardrobe.
The place is tiny but functional and the view is fantastic. When my SO moves in for real (hopefully soon) and brings all of his stuff we might be a little snug but we’re not planning on staying here for more than a year or two so we’ll manage.

1250 sq. ft. condo with 2 bedrooms/2 baths. We rent. It’s perfect for us. It’s very nice to have the extra bedroom.

@aggie2010: My house is 2300sqft. Its a 5 bedroom, 2 bath plus an office and finished basement. Its just my SO and I that live there, but I bought the home with my parents as an investment. There is ALOT of space for just the 2 of us but we’re hoping to make a decent profit in a few years 🙂

We closed on this house in August. It’s 3200 square feet, four bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths. It is way too big for the two of us, but we will be TTC before the end of the year and we wanted a house to grow in to.
