We own a bi-level house, so the ‘basement’ is only paritally underground so it’s bright and has quite high ceilings (over 10 feet high). We have 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths. Each level is about 1200sqft. So technically it’s 1200sqft since basements don’t count, but we have 2400 sqft of livable space. 🙂

Ours is 2300 sq ft, 3 BR/2.5 BA with a bonus and formal dining room. It is a lot of spcae for the two of us right now– but we bought it with the future in mind. We have been taking our time furnishing and decorating, it has been a lot of fun!

Right around 400 sq ft. It’s way too small. We’re trying to get a bigger place, but with rental prices in the area it might be most cost efficient for us to buy a mobile home so at least we can take advantage of the housing market.

For the past year and a half, we’ve been in a 750 sf condo with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom. With 2 adults, 1 toddler, and 2 super rambunctious cats, I can feel my sanity slipping.
But this weekend, we’re moving to a 1400 townhouse with 3 bedrooms, and 2.5 baths. Just in time for the arrival of baby #2. So excited.It’s still smallish, but a huge improvement.

Right now we live in a 2 story townhouse, just under 2,000 square feet. 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths. We have the option to buy it (we are renting from DH’s boss and he’s moving out of state and wants to sell it) and we’re tired of looking at houses and not finding what we want. We need to make a decision soon! Darling Husband loves the townhouse and wants us to buy it, I think he’s trying to convince me that this is the perfect home for us.
I wouldn’t want anything bigger. Size wise, it’s fine.

I guess I am not the norm, our house is Over 3500 sq Feet, 5 bedrooms 3 baths, and we plan on having 2 kids, and the extra room will remain a guest bedroom

@mija22: We are looking at houses in that range and slightly smaller. Though to have a house like that in Southern California is likely a much different proposition than having one like that in Oklahoma! Housing here is, compared to most places, dirt cheap, so since we are already in our early thirties we didn’t want to worry about getting a starter home we would just have to sell in a year or two when we’re TTC.

Ours is 1259 square feet, pretty generous for our area and plenty expensive. 4 bedrooms, 1,5 bath, driveway and garage. It’s a connected home. I’m envious of you guys in the states!

I’m surprised to learn that basements don’t count toward sqft counts! Nobody has basements in my area so it didn’t occur to me that they might not count. I wonder why that is?

Ours is just over 1500 ( not including unfinished basement ). It has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. We are expecting baby #1 which still leaves us with a guest room and right now the size is fine. It is our starter home and once we have more kids and earn a bit more money we will upgrade to our forever home which will hopefully be between 2,000-2,500 sqft. We don’t want to go bigger than that.

My condo is 450 sq ft. It’s the perfect size for me right now, but I can’t imagine sharing it. It’s a studio so the bathroom is the only private space!
FIs house is a 950 sq ft bungalow with a finished basement. It’s the perfect size for us as a couple, 3 bedrooms (one is going to become my sewing room after we are married) and 2 bathrooms. If we were ony planning on having one child it would be big enough, but we will need a bigger house eventually because we are planning on having four kids. My parents have a 1400 sq ft bilevel with 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and to me it’s an ideal size and layout for raising a family.

Mine is almost 1500 sqft. Open concept. 3 bedrooms 2 baths. I dont foresee having children but for me, it’s too small for a family. I had a 1400 sqft 2 bedroom 2 bath condo and the living room and bedrooms were huge! I got spoiled. Now we have a large kitchen, thouh where we only had a galley kitchen. Perfect size for me would be 2500 sqft.

We have a 1200 sq ft, 1 bedroom, 2 bath condo. I bought it before I met my Fiance, and its great for one person. Spacewise, its great for 2 people. We have a ton of storage and the bedroom is huge.
However, its a loft-style unit, so there just isn’t much privacy. I wish we had an office or an alternative space for each of us to call “our own”. To do work in, for phone calls with friends/family, or just for alone time. But we like the price point, it gives us the ability to live off one income. We probably won’t move for awhlie.

Just under 1800 sq ft. 4 bedrooms. 2 bathrooms. Perfect for us.
