Ours is 2350 sqft and we haven’t developed the basement yet. There’s really no need for us to move unless we want a change.

Ours is just under 2000 sqft and has a pretty big finished basement. We don’t plan to move until we’re old and grey and can’t do stairs anymore.

900sqf 2 bed 2 bath – plenty for 2 people and 2 dogs. Planning on raising a child here, too. 

If we do move, it will be another condo or bungalow to apeal to the retiring population in case we need to sell, or to be able to stay in our place if we choose, well into our old age.

Our house is 720sqft, not including the finished basement. 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, eat in kitchen, 1.5 car garage, attic space for storage. We have two young children. Our house is small but we love it. We bought in one of the best school districts in our area so we sacrificed size to be in an excellent neighborhood.

So my husband and I are going backwards lol.  Our first house we bought together was about 2600 sq ft, 5 beds, 3.5 baths in the suburbs.  We put it up for sale (the housing market is insane right now…we were C/S in less than 24 hours!) We are now moving to the “inner city” part of the big city, to a 950 sq ft 2bed/2bath condo.  Neither of us have lived in a condo before, but we’re really excited to be within walking distance to some great stuff!

TINY! We bought and renovated a little house from the 1930s. Two bedrooms and under 700 square feet. There is no attic, and the second floor ceilings are very low, but there is a full basement. We have a nice yard with woods at the back, and a 300 square foot studio with electricity, seperate from the house.   

I can see it getting very cramped if we have kids, but we are good at keeping the basics organized and filtering out things we don’t use regularly. We could make it work.

First house was a 3200 sq ft open concept “new build” in Florida. Just closed on my second house which is 1800 sq ft (not including the basement) 1910 in the GTA. Quite a difference but I am in love with all the character this house has and I’m excited to put my stamp on it.
