Every so often I tell Carlos that i miss Miami--I do because, while absence makes the heart grow fonder, it also makes one forget the snarling traffic and the crazy weather.
But there are also times when i miss our house in Miami. It wasn't a large house, and didn't even have a large yard. Our Smallville home, by comparison, is roughly twice the size with a yard more than twenty-times the size. Now, that doesn't mean out Smallville yard is ginormous, it just means the Miami yard was minuscule.
And smaller houses and yards are easy to care for, easier to clean and maintain.
But, um, this might be taking downsizing to an extreme.
The Japanese-based Architecture firm Mizuishi Atelier Architects have designed a small house with a total area of 313 sq.ft. That's roughly a quarter of the size of our Miami home with an even smaller yard. But this home is amazingly open, feels very spacious and id flooded with light. This could work...except it's in Japan and, well, there's that whole I don't speak Japanese thing.
Maybe they could box it up and mail it to me?
