Why I Live in a Small Space

My love of small spaces started with a one-bedroom cottage my grandfather built behind their house, in the 1950’s. Years later, I had already lived in many different types of small spaces:  garage apartments, studio apartments, two small houses. I wrote my SMALL SPACE LIFE series of e-books  [launching in March 2021 on Amazon Kindle], to contain all the accumulated knowledge from my experiences during a  lifetime of small space living. Since my husband and I have been living in our Manhattan studio apartment, I have encountered more challenges, requiring more innovation. I am now focused on creating innovative new ways to live well in any small space, whether you are in a city studio apartment or a small house. My experience proves, every day, that living small can be living well!
