Has another year passed? No, seriously….has it? What did we do in 2021? Last year I wrote a recap of our Year in 2020 (which you can read here if you missed it) and finished by saying 2021 would get better. I’m not sure it did. We kicked off 2021 by celebrating our dear Felicity’s … More 2021: Year in Review
No surprises here…our little toddler’s lifestyle (can you believe Campbell is TWO now?!) is demanding a few changes around our place. When we decided to upgrade from our previous one bedroom apartment I wondered how well and for how long our two bedroom, two bathroom space would work for us. I’m happy to report that we … More Hong Kong Apartment: Recent Changes
Hosting friends at our place ticks a lot of boxes for us. We enjoy preparing food for others to enjoy, it’s a nice break from eating out (the Hong Kong norm), and selfishly…when we host at our place we can still hang out with friends with a contented sleeping baby in the next room. It … More How We Host a Dinner Party in 590 Sq Ft

Our former Vancouver digs – 800 sq ft one bedroom place (see photos of that here) was never going to cut … More Hong Kong House Sizes
Our original plan for our 590 sq ft apartment allowed for a baby (if you’re catching up, see the floorplan here); it’s why we moved and what we planned for. Initially a bassinet on our bedroom window sill and a changing mat on top of a chest of drawers was all the dedicated space our tiny … More Creating Space for a Toddler in 590 Sq Ft
Welcome to the latest contribution to the Small Family Homes Blog Community! This month’s topic focuses on the necessities of small space living for a family. I feel like I’m constantly curating a list of small space necessities in my mind as I discuss our living situation with others. I think this list is especially … More 10 Must-Haves for Small Space Family Living
At some point during our time here in Hong Kong (probably somewhere between learning I was pregnant and deciding to move to a slightly larger place to accommodate our baby’s arrival), I got really interested in small-space dwelling with a baby. I discovered a great blog written by another small-space-dwelling-Alison; 600SQFTANDABABY captures her life in Vancouver living … More Do You Need to Be Creative to Live Small?
As many of you have read, we’ve enjoyed living in a tiny, cozy apartment here in Hong Kong. A while back I shared our little slice of Canada that we created in 440 square feet (if you missed it, read up: here). Knowing we were expecting a baby we needed somewhere with a bit more space and began … More Our New *Larger Hong Kong Apartment
