Living in a dolls house means that the cost of heating it is not overly prohibitive (despite ever rising energy costs) but the downside is there is just nowhere for stuff and often it feels more like we live in a self imposed jail. Only surrounded by stuff.
I’ll never understand why basements are not the norm in a country like Britain where housing and space is supplied at a premium and the explosion in self storage stores accomodates the space many of us wish we had at home.
Or build up. Town houses stretching up to the cloud tops. I need space.
I can dream.
