how much space do you waste?

Ever since New York Times featured an article called Think Small back in February 2007, Jesse and I have been fantasizing about buying a peice of land in some untouched part of the country. It would preferably be near the water, and within driving distance  where we could plop our own little prefab "tiny house," just to get away for a weekend.  Maybe thats why we love the Carneros Inn in Napa Valley so much. Every guest room at the Carneros Inn is an individual pre fab house with a great outdoor area,  appointed with high thread counts, a flat screen TV, and a fireplace. Who needs anything more? Lately their has been more talk about "tiny houses," between the green living boom, and the nation's financial crises the notion of downsizing is all the rage. Mimi Zeiger's new book "Tiny Houses" couldnt ask for better timing. Every house featured in her book "Tiny Houses is under 1,000 square feet.

How much space do you really need?
