Where is the studio going to go?
That's always my first question whenever I think about going small. I've considered this question quite a lot lately, mostly because of my desire to live close to work and the only places within my budget would be under 1000 sqft. Right now my place is abut 1500 sqft and its a bit big for me. I think about 400 sqft is what I would need just for my studio needs, I've thought about getting a smaller home and then adding a second out building for the studio.
As an aside, HGTV use to have a show called Small Space, Big Style
, they use to show some pretty amazing places all under 1000 sqft, some might even fit in the tiny homes blog. It appears to be off the air now, too bad. I guess mega McMansions are more popular with the masses.
