Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Actually, original old cottages were small because a) people were smaller, and b) everything was built by the homeowner's family themselves using materials they harvested and gathered themselves - so the less wood and stone, the better...
...plus smaller homes were uninsulated and far easier to keep warm from a single fireplace in the dead of winter - and easier to clean out in the springtime when the family needed to be out working the fields.

can you tell me the width and depth of stairs and floor space? - need to build very narrow stairs to attic and do not have much space. I also request the measurement of floor space needed... thanks so much for your help... we have an old farmhouse with very limited floor space
