Tiny Houses: The Master Bath is Sooo Small!
I’m making dinner and watching HGTV’s “House Hunters.” An early-30-something couple is searching for a home in Arlington, Virginia (south of Washington, D.C.). Their budget is $650,000 (!).
They’ve looked at three homes. The wife wants the “perfect” kitchen of course; granite counter tops, an island, a double oven and stainless steel appliances.
The husband wants a “man cave” which he gets. One of the last shots is of him watching a football game in front of a wall of three flat screen TVs, one of which is 80-some inches.
At one point during the search the wife complains that one of the master bathrooms is “sooo small.” I don’t claim to have any expertise on square footage but it had a sink with a five foot-ish long countertop, a shower, a tub and a commode. But again, it was “sooo small.”
“Sooo small? ” Small is good. Here’s our master bathroom. It’s in the 60’s style. Our house was built in 1963 and somehow people managed — way back then — to live without all the accoutrement we’re lead to believe we “need” now.
Cute huh? It takes 15 minutes to clean and we don’t need anything more.
