How big is 'normal'
I guess it depends on what you are used to. On another forum, a woman is interested in seeing "normal" houses for the two of them, no children.
She doesn't want a mansion, only about 3000 square feet.
How big is your house? If I count the big back porch, mine is about 1800 sq.ft. I don't think I want to have to keep 3000 ft. tidy.
I also like to be able to yell in the kitchen and be heard in the bedroom. Three bedrooms (yeah, one is smallish) means that I can store junk in the closet or have guests.
So, how big is "normal?"
