      >661sqft
      >61m2
      That's like a very average commieblock apartment in exyu countries, not sure if it counts as 1 or 2 bedroom as we had a bedroom and a living room both similarly sized. Relatively big and separate kitchen was standard. Relative to new buildings with open space shit is what I mean. It's new buildings that are shrinking the usual bedroom count to square meter ratio, I hate them. I hate buildings anyway but if it's that small it might as well be one. Or row houses.

      This is fine but with all the land no one in their right mind is gonna build a 60m2 house. At the smallest 2x that probably.

      I mean they're LITERALLY as wide as a fricking garage... The fact that people are going along with this shit is depressing as frick. There is so clearly a housing crisis going on now, and the response of all the major world governments is to ramp up regulations on building while simultaneously invite in hundreds of thousands of people with no job skills who leech off welfare and take over all the affordable housing with govt sanctions against rental buildings that dont give them preferential placement over actual citizens of the country.

      Fricking INSANE that thats where we are in 2024. If you pushed this premise as realistic when, say, Obama was running for office you would have been called an insane conspiracy theorist.

        here
        Actually i take it back, because garages have to have something like 4' on each side of the car for a person to get out while the car is parked inside it, so these are actually narrower than a single car garage.

        I agree however that people shouldn't be crammed together like this.

        for sure, if someone wants to live in a cozy place thats fine. But the fact that this is being treated as some long term strategy to dealing with this problem isnt acceptable... especially when they're 1/6th of a million fricking dollars each.
        20 years ago $160k(cnd, so like $120k usd) in my city would buy a nice 1200sqft bungalow with a detached garage and finished basement.... and it would be a solidly built house, not some shitty pre-fab using sketchy framing and ultra cheap/light materials.
        I really feel like we're getting close to the point where the general population is just going to revolt. You can only normalize shit expectations for so long before someone snaps. Getting a degree paid for while doing part time work and saving up for the first year in your new career to put a downpayment on your home that would fit 3 or 4 people, which is what people in their 20s and 30s were all told to do is so far removed from reality... frick, even the idea of going to eat fast food cause you're broke and tired isnt practical anymore since a fricking big mac meal at mcdonalds is like $14 now.

          You can still get a nice ~1800+sqft house in good shape for $160K in my city, in an area where average couple tend to pull down $100K+ per year.

          I always see stuff about how people are ready to revolt in areas where a starter home costs north of half a million-- but then waiters pull down 100K a year there and it doesn't seem so crazy.
          It mostly seems like a problem for people who aren't playing the game the way that it's meant to be played.

          I just checked, and a Big Mac meal is $8.69 at regular menu price here right now.

    Ideal should be relative to the minimum - double the minimum is a gift. For me, I lived a year with about 80 sqft, so 160 sqft. With the wife we'd both have the same bathroom so maybe shave off 20 and it'd be 300 sqft.

        What's with all the wasted space between houses? Building them as row houses would save on heating and insulation costs for middle units and allow for more people to fit in a given area. Row houses are also generally larger. Who designed these things? Who are they marketed to?

    It cannot be generalized and it highly depends on your needs.
    In rural areas you need more space than in dense cities with nice services. If you plan to work from home and you are not alone, then you'll need an extra room.

    As a rule of thumb:
    1 person: 1 or 2 rooms + kitchen and 1 bathroom
    2 person: 2 rooms + kitchen and 1 bathroom
    2 parents + 1 kid: 3 rooms + kitchen and 1 bathroom
    2 parents + 2 kid: 3 or 4 rooms + kitchen and 2 bathroom
    For each extra adult (or couple) you should add a room and a bathrom
    Every 2 extra adults you have to add a living room.

    Strong minimums:
    1 person: 28 mq
    2 persons: 38 mq
    3 persons: 42 mq
    +14 mq for each extra person.

    About room sizes (again strong minimums):
    single bedroom: 8 mq
    double: 12-14 mq (it depend how you manage the wardrobe)
    livingroom: 14 mq
    kitchen: 5 mq
    livingroom + kitchen (sub optimal): 17 mq

    Those are bare minimums.
    In my opinion for a single person 28 mq could be even big. For two 38 if very small and probably around 50-60 would be better. Over 80 mq could be inpractical for just two people.

    But again, you really have to consider where you are and how much time you will spend at home: rural area with cold winter? You will stay at home a lot and you will enjoy more space. Nice european city with an out of home job? You will spend most of your free time out, so just something more of an hotel room will work.

      What the frick is this eat the bug, live in the pod, propoganda shit? I'd fricking off myself if I only had 28sqm/300sqft. 80sqm/850sqft is the absolute minimum even for a single person to have comfortable space. I'm not saying you can't do it, but having that little space isn't comfortable, let alone "ideal".

      And the catch is...
      That if the interior is poorly setup, you quickly start losing A LOT of sqm
      Cellar entrance? Entire staircase is lost sqm that can´t be used for anything
      Bathroom too square? You lose 2-3
      Unlucky door position? Or fireplace position? Or minisplit interior position? Quickly lose half of those rooms as well.
      Bedroom NEEDS to be separate, for noise insulation as well as having it be colder and better ventilated. Otherwise you are just gambling sleep away because landlord is too cheap to install proper escape windows.
      Kitchen needs to be contacting a exterior wall for the ductwork, otherwise its very very suboptimal.

      Then there is needs for things like utility closets, where to store hot water, etc. So to end at a net 28sqm, you quickly need 40-50sqm due ineffective interior solutions.
      Lack a outdoor shed? That is another 3-5sqm lost.

      So in my humble experience, you quickly need to rent 40-60sqm, because otherwise you end up with a flat you can´t live or do hobbies inside.
      I´ve rented optimal 30-35ush sqm, but then you can´t just get a used hobby table to do light wood carving or place to store your jacks for car repairs. Its a fricking death sentence to creativity.
      But lets add another can of worms:
      If you get a GF and are living in a 28sqm bug cube.... well then you are fricked. Its just that simple. So you need to fricking move and end rent incurring loses, because renting 28sqm is completely utterly fricked.
      Might as well make sub 60sqm illegal to rent out, and let the market deal with the fallout.

      Depends on how many bedrooms and where. If you go <1500sq ft on a 3/2 house, it’s going to be a small kitchen and stuff. 1750-2000 probably means there’s room for a dining room table. Layout matters too though, I have seen Mexicans turn a 1600sq-ft house into 5 bedrooms where you need to walk through a bedroom to get to the other bedroom.

      I wish I had a 2500sq-ft minimum shop. One day when the wife is done with residency and everything, I’m buying some acreage with an out building and have a lift in there plus a loft for parts and material storage so I can go full hoarder.

          How, unless you collect junk cars. (pic related is clickspring's shop as viewed from the doorway. I know he makes small stuff, but jesus h christ imagine what he could do with 2500 sq ft; what is this, about 10x20 ft?)

            Sliding saw with in/out-feed tables for 4'x8', miter saw with in/out-feed tables for 16', planer with 8' in/out-feed, assembly table and workbench fills up my 950sq ft pretty well. I imagine a vehicle lift and space for engine assembly and a proper blasting cabinet would make 2500 sq ft pretty tight.

              Engine assembly should get its own room or container, not share space with any dirt or dust generating activities or be where you cannot control humidity with a dehumidifier unless you live in a proper desert (that stays a desert year-round).

              I put my blast cabinet on castered wheels so I can wheel it outdoors to blast then wheel it inside. Everything should have wheels so it can easily be moved for cleaning, rearranged and transported. The USAF taught me the joys of rolling equipment including benches, cabinets and counters. The cost to mobilize your gear is quite modest over time.

              I even have my air compressors on wheels and plumb my shops in air hose not fixed piping so I can easily reconfigure everything. Far too many amateurs trap themselves with bulky wooden storage permanently mounted (wood devours precious cubic feet/meters/cubits). The only fixed storage I like is high mounted steel shelves and boxes above head height. I have a couple of service bed top boxes bolted to my welding shop walls which is great out-of-the-way storage. My containers have hanging shelves hooked to the ceiling tiedowns and build as a mix of welded shelf trays and bolted braces and verticals so I can easily modify them and do useful stuff like bolt toolbox tops to the shelf bottoms.

              The more shit you keep off the floor the less exasperating obstacles you deal with. Kill some time studying military and industrial storage. There's cool stuff to copy or be inspired by or look out for at auction.

        Lofts are stupid for storage of other than light items. Shit just inconveniently accumulates then when you get old will really suck to retrieve. With acreage you can expand laterally as I do with very low effort.

        I've a Steelmaster 20x20 welding shop (no fire hazard because I don't build using flammable trash) and four 40' High Cubes, two welded side-by-side as a shop which works a treat. I may attach one more but am debating a 20x40 foot Steelmaster roof/end wall system since they're so easy to erect (used scaffolding is cheap, and don't forget to anti-seize all the hardware).

        Multiple shops don't fratricide in fire and isolate processes from each other. My motorcycle collection lives dehumidified and dust-free away from my machine shop away from my welding and sand blasting area.

          Delete walls or add halls

          I mean some of this shit was probably a medium sized bedroom with small walk in closet that got turned into 2 bedrooms, or they enclosed a Florida room and split it into 2 bedrooms. Adding a hallway would make the small bedrooms unusable so going back towards original is the best way.

          Or add an exterior door and seal off the wall to the other bedroom and make it an AirBnB rental room.

    Pretty happy with an 1800 sqft 3bd/2br. Turned the two extra bedrooms into an office and electronics workshop. Also has an oversized 2.5 car garage (around 950 sq ft IIRC) with plenty of workshop space. Wouldn't want to downsize too much as then I would have room for the truck, my motorcycles and a backup car.

    why the hell would you want 2 bath for a small 1 bedroom house? That's a lot of wasted space when you're talking about a house that size. I've lived in a 650sqft apartment before and I wouldn't have wanted a second bathroom added to it.

      I'll take the driveway I can watch over and pave over the lawn or landscape with railroad gravel over geotextile etc then crushed asphalt which drains fine and takes weight (I use both).

    For a family of 4, 1500sq plus like 250 for storage is minimum. I wish I had like 1750 though.

    if you have multiple floors do you add the square footage or what

    At least a quarter acre of land with 2500sqft of house on top of it. More is always better but that's the minimum.

      house too big, land too small

        One of my pet peeves is these 3000+ sq.ft. McMansions built on tiny plots of land. They’re building them like crazy around here in South Florida. The areas like 30min west of the coast were like horse ranch areas and beautiful ranch houses on 2-5 acres. And the past 5 years especially, they’re buying up a couple of those propertied and sticking in a subdivision with 20 houses that are good size 2 story homes but the space between the houses is like OP’s pic. And those houses must be going for >$1mil with the prices down here even though it’s like an hour drive from downtown with rush hour traffic, so it’s still suburbia. The builders know that all these normies put way more of a premium on the square footage of the house than the square footage of the land.

          I think what I want if I have the money is a big house with a big courtyard in the middle, with the house acting as a natural fence, frankly I think more schools should be designed like this. Except I would make exterior staircase leading to the roof in the courtyard so there is no way to get trapped in the middle. Only exterior windows 2nd floor and above....the big problem is where to put the garage, inside the fortress which would require a ground floor door, or outside?

    While that's completely moronic, it's more about design. Not really size (see: mcmansions)

    500 acre privately owned woodland.
    1k Square foot House.
    River on property.
    Lake on property.
    For me that's the ideal.

    Why 2 baths

    • 2 months ago
      Anonymous

      because it's 2 floors
      Texans would shart themselves before they could get up/down the stairs to make it to the bathroom
      so you have a half bath on 1 floor and full on the other

        one of the baths is a half under the stairs

    It depends on how many people you live with and what you're used to. I grew up in an old house built in the 1950s, its smaller than a lot of modern homes. I'm used to it so it feels fine to me but other people have complained.
