    The thing is, growing up in NZ during the 1960s small 2 bed houses like this were common. My best friend slept in the living area behind the piano for privacy, my neighbours kids, 2 boys and a girl, shared a tiny bedroom barely large enough for a bed and a set of bunk beds until the daughter left to get married in her twenties. Some of these houses were doubled in size by jacking them up and building a new floor underneath but for many this was unaffordable. In many parts of the world, and this includes the UK and Ireland, houses this size are common although many expanded up into the attic area for extra sleeping rooms. My grandparents house was a kitchen/living/dining room on the ground floor which had a tiny bathroom racked on the back and 2 small bedrooms upstairs, my aunt lived in a house barely any larger though this had a kitchen, living room and dining room downstairs with bathroom and 3 bedrooms upstairs, and was split between her in-laws and herself, her husband and 4 daughters where the kitchen and bathroom were shared with the living and sleeping rooms split between them. The US has plenty of space soi seems to think that huge houses are normal but in the vast majority of the world the opposite is true. Tiny houses are normal with big houses the prerogative of the wealthy. My dream cottage has just been renovated in a nearby village and consists of a tiny bedroom and bathroom with a slightly larger living cooking area. It sits right on the pavement and has a small walled rear garden with a small attic area for extra storage. There are many like this here in Ireland and one day I hope to afford to live in one.

    Really lovely. . .love the porch and flowers and view. The inside is beautifully decorated and the window treatments are perfect for the size house and to show off the beautiful stained trim. Lovely!
