140 square feet is the living space of the tiny house that Greg Johnson lives in. He says it has improved his lifestyle. He even wrote a book called Put Your Life On a Diet: Lessons Learned from Living in 140 Square Feet. I haven’t read the book yet.
140 square feet is also the living space of many village huts in North India where the Dalits live with their families.
140 square feet is 13 square meters. It’s not much living space.
140 square feet is also the living space of our motorhome, which has been our only home and base for the past 2 and a half years. With my wife and our 5 children, and our guest, we currently live with 17.5 square feet per person. Thats a little more than last week, when another guest was living and traveling with us, but it still not a lot of room.
Even less than Greg Johnson who gets to rattle around his 140 square foot home all by his lonesome.
SO . . . HOW DO WE PUT UP WITH EACH OTHER LIVING IN 140 SQUARE FEET?
– We make it a priority to get along. Disagreements are sorted out immediately and nothing lingers.
– Our daughters have always shared a room in houses so it was an easier transition for them.
– We don’t have much space but we do have our own space. We all have a locker, all to ourselves, to store our clothes and stuff.
– We make use of outdoor space as much as possible. That includes our outside kitchen and occasionally sleeping in tents.
– We like each other. We get along. Our kids play games together despite the differences in age. That has always been the case.
– We are willing to make sacrifices in order to maintain a high degree of travel. No pain, no gain.
