To date, many articles have been writtenhighlighting the benefits of suburban life. Perhaps, the time has come to discuss its downside, namely, the shortcomings that owners of cottages, especially small ones, may face. Immediately clarify that we will focus on compact houses up to 100 square meters. meters intended for one family. First, let's discuss the most important and most painful problem: the placement of children. It's one thing to go out of town for the weekend withyour friends or the second half, taking with you perhaps a couple of bottles of wine and snacks. Quite another is to live in a cottage permanently, having one or more children of different ages who need space for playing, eating and sleeping. Do not forget that the presence of a hugethe number of children's supplies is inevitable if there are kids in the house. And we are talking not only about toys and bulky furniture. This also includes diapers, cosmetics and clothing. Well, chaos and noise caused by the presence of children inhome, most will consider the blessing of God, and not a hell of a curse.

And laundry, if there is any. Under conditions of shortage of space it is very difficult.to select and, after all, it is necessary that each item corresponds to three parameters at once: the budget allocated, the tastes of the owners and the dimensions of the room. And first you need to make sure that the selected sofa will squeeze into a non-standard entrance door and will not get stuck in the hallway. To seat at the table, guests will have to show considerable ingenuity. But the narrowness contributes to the establishment of contacts and compels them to maintain a conversation with those sitting next to each other. If someone is lucky with the presence of the backyard and good weather, he can organize a feast in the open air. However, an increasing number of peoplehe moves to small houses, out of town, seeking refuge from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis, considering that the location more than compensates for all their shortcomings.
