I meant to re-post this the other day, but then completely forgot. The discussion was hilarious- so is the video. I’ve been reading real estate reports from the world over and it does seem the trend is to live in less space. Not just that, but single person households are on the rise while larger (family) groupings are falling dramatically. I wonder how this will play out in the long term. I’d always imagined we’d get away from the Victorian idea of isolated family life and move back to the way of living which existed before which was more communal (the link is worth following for a good history lesson). That’s certainly my plan for old age, if I get there. A house like number 42 is ideal for the experience. Four to six people could easily live here and make a collaborative life together without getting in each other’s way. I imagine that to be considerably more pleasant than living in a bus or a shed.
