A couple of weeks ago a visitor admiring our sun room asked me how big it was. When I replied, “I don’t know” she looked at me as if I were not quite bright. But I don’t go around measuring square feet; either a place is the right size or it isn’t.
I’ve deduced from listening to other people describe their houses that 5,500 square feet is really big, and 1,200 square feet is really not. But I don’t know if I should be impressed by 2,200 square feet or if I should sympathize. For me, if everybody fits and the roof doesn’t leak, I’m good.
