I lived in Asia for about ten years, actually buying my first house when I was in Taichung, Taiwan. Space, as you can imagine, is limited. Living quarters are cramped. Furniture never fits. I was always barking my shin on something.
My last house, a two-floor townhouse in Panchaio, a suburb of Taipei, Taiwan was about 800 square feet. It was about twelve feet wide. It had three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen and a living room. It’s hard to imagine, isn’t it?
Yesterday, I wrote that you really shouldn’t buy a big house unless you love it. If you’re buying a smaller house, here is a really cool video from Hong Kong about how to make the most out of the least amount of space. I can hardly wait till the kids are grown and we can move into a condo.
