Teeny homes with charm

While modern homes may be getting smaller, they still have a ways to go before they are as small as the homes our great-grandparents lived in. If they came from the old country, they were likely living in cottages or row houses.  I remember seeing the little row house where my great-grandparents lived, as gardeners and servants to the neighbouring estate.  Three up and three down — and they raised six kids!

And many were even smaller.

Even when they moved to North America, our families lived in little houses (at least in the cities).

NOLAThanks to Gizmodo for that picture of houses in New Orleans.

And of more pictures of adorable little homes.

By building our home smaller, we’re not just embracing the future, we are saluting the past!
