This is the story of how this family of four is living simply in their 700 sq. ft. apartment in Copenhagen.

So how do two adults and two children fit their entire lives in less than 700 sq. ft.? This family did it by completely rebuilding their apartment with the help of a local carpenter.

They intentionally decided to downsize so they can live in the city after experiencing living outside of Copenhagen beforehand. They sold many of their belongings, downsized some more, and started to rebuild the apartment. Thanks to their hard work and thoughtful downsizing process, today they get to live a wonderful simple life in the heart of the city. Please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!

This 700 sq. ft. tiny cottage is located in Plymouth, NH and is used as a vacation rental by the owners. You can actually book a night in it yourself if you want to using Airbnb.

Inside you’ll find a little kitchen, living room, two loft bedrooms, and a bathroom. Outside there’s a beautiful porch and you’re surrounded by gardens. Plus it says it’s located where you can walk to town. Sounds pretty cool, doesn’t it?

Can you imagine yourself living in a little house like this one? I think 700 sq. ft. is a really good size because it’s still small and easy to manage but you still get enough space for whatever it is you might like. Please enjoy, re-share and leave us with your best thoughts in the comments below. Thank you!

When it comes to small houses planning and design really counts.

This couple began creating ideas for their future “perfect” home early in their marriage.

They wanted a home that was big enough for just the two of them (and their dogs).

This way they’d have more time and money for their personal interests.
