  1. I would love to hear more about downsizing! (and subsequent upsizing) I’ve read all of your posts on downsizing and now planning to move again.
    We are considering going from 4800 sq ft to 1800 sq ft, and then adding an 800 sq ft detached guest house/2 offices. In the greater scheme of things, this is not downsizing as drastically as many people do. What is going to be hardest about it? (less stuff? more noise in the house? fewer bathrooms?)

    1. I’ll definitely do an update on everything after we move and are settled a bit, but for us the hardest part of downsizing was just feeling like we’re all on top of each other a little more. We went from 1700 to 1100, so we’re in a very small space, but it suddenly felt a little like we couldn’t get away from each other for some peace and quiet! That was our biggest adjustment, and then obviously storage space was tricky too – but we purged quite a bit and came up with creative storage solutions, so it ended up being just fine in the end!
