Call me weird but the happiest days of my life were always those where I lived in one room. It was so easy to organize and there was so little to pay for. I saved time and money and went traveling with all that extra money. There were fewer bills arriving every month - actually none - and I think my life was far fuller than it has been for the past thirty years that I have lived in more conventional habitats. Anyway, I’m back to one room living and I love it! I managed to get a lovely sunny room on the first floor of a Victorian House in North Park San Diego. It is minute - about 8’ x 8’ with a wash basin and a small dressing room and that’s about it. The loo and shower are shared outside, but who cares?
I’m going to be writing a lot more about one room living because I think this is where my heart is. I love to look for things that are small, beautiful, and highly-functional. And you’ll be amazed how many of them there are in this day and age. One room living is a great solution for singles and seniors, as well as couples and small families that are temporarily unable to afford a more conventional lifestyle.
