I lived for several months in a Class A 45 foot RV. Alone, stationary, this could have worked. Traveling and living with 3 dogs and a husband? No. Just never again.

I've also lived in a very small two bedroom farmhouse that was about 650 feet of cramped space with 3 young children, but it was set out in the middle of nowhere with space for the kids to run. AND it had a garage for storage, so that helped. That wasn't bad, but there were no doors on the bedrooms. A very weird home, with it's own resident ghost. Not bad for about a year. lol

I once stayed a week in an old hotel in the UK with the smallest room I ever occupied. It had a tiny TV on a shelf affixed to the wall, long before wall mounted flat screens were comnon, and a single twin bed. It was so tight in the room I had to walk sideways to get my suitcase in. The bathroom didn't have a tub, rather it had a phone booth size shower, a toilet, and a small sink. The most interesting aspect of the room was the bathroom door. It open outward into the room, but had to be closed to open the inward opening door used to enter/exit the room. If the bathroom door was left open, it physically blocked the inward swing of the room door.

The bedroom in that farmhouse I mention was wall to wall queen size bed. We had to crawl in from the foot of the bed to sleep. lol

I once rented a room in a house with a very odd assortment of people; some college students, some bachelors, some just odd. My room consisted of a short hallway that was big enough for my two suitcases and a bookcase, the room was nearly swamped by a queen sized bed, a bureau where my tiny television set rested, and a little alcove where I kept a hot pot and an electric kettle. It was cozy for one, but would have been impossible for two! The kitchen was shared, as well as the three bathrooms.

Welp, I live a little town on a little lake in a little house. The upside is I get to to use high-end building materials. That's because I don't have too many square feet. Oak floors, Persian rugs. Decent tile.
Gally kitchen. It's rustic with a great big giant fireplace.

This sounds like my daughter's first non-dorm housing as an undergrad. Nine students, including one in med school, shared a huge house a couple blocks off campus. It had three full bathrooms, two half baths, and a kitchenette to go along with a large full kitchen. Two blocks down one way was frat/sorority row, three blocks the other way was a convent. The house was owned by the parents of two of kids who lived there, including the med student who got the basement, with half bath and kitchenette, to himself. My daughter is still friends with all but a couple of the residents over 20 years later.

Smallest place I can remember would be an apartment when I was a kid. It was probably averaged sized at the time, but thinking back, it just struck me as small now. But there are tutorials on YouTube on how you can build a small, off the grid cabin that I think I could definitely live it.

I visited my childhood home a few decades ago when I saw it was for sale. When i was a kid I thought it was huge. I was surprised to see how small it really was! I guess the smaller you are the bigger the world seems
