At just over 1100 sq. feet, you might say we are house poor. I love our little cottage and it suits our needs pretty well so I'm not complaining, but sometimes you just long for a little space. Where we are rich as kings is our yard. Five wooded acres with a stream running through. About 3 acres are woods, but we have a glorious 2 acres to spread out in warm weather. One of the best things we have done over the years is make this old shed foundation our raised garden.
