Sylvia-I would have to respectfully disagree. I do not envy the European lifestyle at all but much prefer having space inside and out in which to socialize. From my several trips to Europe, I do not think they are more social. In some areas of Europe, I have found some people to be less social than what I have seen around a lot of areas of this country.

I certainly do not think obsessing over square footage has anything to do with socializing.

That being said, people who prefer small houses to large ones are no different to people liking large cars to small ones or comedies to romance etc etc. I think it is whatever makes you happy and comfortable. Different people have different needs or wants and why not. You work hard your whole life, and deserve to enjoy life the way it makes you happy.

The one thing though that does annoy me is people who disagree with you who try to make you feel as though you are somehow wrong or uncaring about the world, environment, or life in general. They can take on a holier than tho attitude in an attempt to make others look small.

We all have different ways of doing our part in "saving" the world. Some through charities, helping the needy, or volunteering (to name a few). Living in a small house is just one small way and by no means the only way. Many new energy efficient houses use less resources than other smaller homes. Al Gore constantly preaches to "reduce your carbon footprint" but has anyone looked at the size of his (carbon footprint that is)?

For those of you who say you actually enjoy living in a small or tiny house-God love ya!!
