One of the other threads claimed the average square footage was 2600. I’m curious, I’ll average this out in a week or so. Two of my kids are 3000 living area, the other is 2000 living area. Since our average age is middle 60’s I’m guessing we are less than 2600.

I’m a little short, 2400 living area, more than Wifey and I need.

How big is your house-living area?

I drew out the plans for our present home of about 16 years.
I wanted about 2400.
A problem came up that the draftsman made that my builder caught.
I was to go overseas the next day and had only hours to fix it.
I made a quick change that satisfied my builder and myself that made it about 2500.
But, as we were building the upstairs, I added extra rooms and ended up at 2700.

2080SF. There are 8 of us....

It's tight but we make it work. I'd like to retire someday instead of make house payments. So, we suck it up for a few years. Daughter off to college in a year or so. Then, 2 more, 2 years after that. They'll be plenty of room then.


It ain't my fault.

I've got 2000 living space and another 2000 in an unfinished basement with a 2 car attached garage. It's way more than the two of us need. But it was the house that was on this piece of property I wanted. The unfinished basement is one of my favorite areas. Most of it is a wide open rectangle. with poured concrete walls. If I can come up with a good backstop, it would make a nice, indoor 20 yard pistol range.

2600 sq. feet. Big for just me and the wife, but we have holiday dinners here and the grandkids like it. Plus, I hate moving. I'll stay here til I'm too old to cut the grass and plow the driveway when it snows.

Too much for us empty nesters....
We also use much of the semi-finished basement[another 1500 sq ft] which houses the woodstove, a full bath and 9' ceiling with walkout patio on SE facing side.

Again, too much as I'm quite happy when we are in Tenn at the 1100 sq ft house.

3100 on the main floor


Another 600 upstairs, but we keep the heat/ac closed off. That's hoarder area, christmas present wrapping, 'guest quarters'


Still 4 people living here, seems like a lot of room, but when you have 3 christmas trees, taxidermy, pool table, gym equip and weights in two diff rooms, antique furniture from 2 sets of grandparents' estates, gawd...we need more space.

Looked for a smaller home but couldn't locate a well built smaller home on nice property, we had limited time to search. Almost half the square footage is the finished basement. Prefer to have everything on one floor but a walk out basement does make the basement nice.

1470 finished + the unfinished basement/utility/shop likely makes it 1700-ish of 1924 built "character" crazy

Empty nesters ( I fugging love it!!)
3 bed rm
2 full bath rm
Kitchen
Living room
Formal dining room
Pretty spartan as far as decor.
Me and Khan/ wife dont like alot of useless eye candy stuff
But what we have out for the random knock on door better homes and gardens photo layout is quality and tasteful.
2 car garage
Finished man cave basement.

Just me and Khan/wife, 3 dogs, 4 cats
Occasional grand dog when one of the 2 knucklebunny older daughters has to go on some Officer career stuff school in unca suga,s army.
1.10 acre
Write it in the will for the 3 daughters to sell and split 3 ways when me and khan/ wife kick the bucket.
Name the oldest as executor with no leeway loopholes.
My kids dont need ta inherit a place to live that they grew up in.
They are pretty succesful citizens as adults.
More so than what i was professionally at their current ages.
Not any stress about them in my life other than wanting a frigging grandchild to teach how to shoot and hunt and inherit some firearms.


LOL!!!!
