Freedom in 704 Square Feet // NY Times
One sentence in this article stopped me cold. When recounting how the extended family felt about the couple that tore down a 1950s house and built their tiny 704 square foot dream house this is what they said…
Mr. Kennel’s family could not fathom it either, he said: “It doesn’t fit their societal picture of success, generally. We’re doing well, so why aren’t we demonstrating that through our house?”
Really? Are we STILL thinking that way? Is that what houses are for to show off or make a statement about our wealth? This thinking saddens me so much but I agree, it’s a “general societal picture of success” let’s change that. This couple already is. Great article.
