Downsize? maybe. Rightsize? definitely!

Here's a delightful and quick video
on Jay Shafer, founder of the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company.

Imagine the savings in resources, fuels (fossil especially), purchase & construction costs, operating costs (utilities), cleaning and maintenance-- to name just a few-- that would be realized if you were to down/right-size your living situation to a more suitable size. Though most Americans would doubtless chafe at the idea of 89 square feet of living space, yet I think many (especially homeowners) would agree, if pressed, that they have more space than they need-- and pay a lot to have it, too.

How many square feet do you need? at minimum? to be comfortable?
What would you include in a home design that you don't currently have?
How might your lifestyle change if you were to down/right-size your living situation?
