?: How to bring these elements into modest spaces? Like apartments and condos aka 'boxes'...?

yes, how to do you bring these elements into a 10w X 14 long room, which uses 3' of that 14' as the front entrance, and has to accommodate a woodstove, sofa, one chair and a large opening to the kitchen as well as allow hallway access...it's the tiny spaces that need more thought and creativity rather than the large ones.

Bud, I work with small spaces a lot and this is probably one of the most important aspects in designing for small spaces that most frequently gets missed. Thanks for bringing these great examples to us. I really enjoyed your article.
