Most of my time on active duty the prevailing theme I heard was "Buy the biggest house you can afford. Time in service/promotions will ease you into the payment over time". Since founding MBO, I have changed my tune a bit. I feel that buying as small as possible gives you a larger population of renters should you decide to hold on to it. My thoughts are little more complicated than that, but that is the jist of it. This is a current discussion between my wife and I, What do you think?

I know this is an old post - but I concur with LtCol David Gran for several reasons, some of which you stated sir. The next home I buy will be "small" by American standards, but I've come to learn that I don't necessarily need a ton of space or items to be content in life. I own a 2500 sqft home in the Savannah area and now I live in a 1000 sqft apartment while i'm finishing out my broadening assignment. I purposely downsized during this PCS due to my recent revelation of not needing a large home to be happy. I also find that having a small dwelling, with the minimum essentials, tends to lead to more free time and in a way, forces you to be out and about more often.

During winter, some windows in the house may let in cold air. To prevent this from happening, I recommend that you visit this site https://windowtechcanada.ca/windows-and-doors-richmond-hill/ windows and doors Richmond Hill and purchase new windows on it! This way you can keep the heat in the house and not pay too much for heating!

I have a big house and nice windows. A hopper window has hinges on the top or bottom and opens inwards, providing great air circulation. If your home has a hopper window, odds are it's located in your basement or bathroom.
