This house is about 2100 sq. ft.
When Lyman was alive, we'd talk about how we needed the office, the kitchen, the fireplace, the bedroom and a bathroom. You could knock that up in 1000, 1200 sq. ft, including the porch for the birds, maybe less.
I'm taking to the notion of "rightsizing." I've never lived alone (long term) in an abode so large.
I'm less enthralled with the notion of painting cabinets again. It has to be done, in the office and the kitchen. Too expensive to hire out.
The condo at the coast was 950 -- two okay bedrooms, two small baths, a decent sized kitchen, small dining and living areas. Knock out the second small bath for a larger closet. That was a good size.
