When we look back at the housing evolution, we notice something very strange. Were our parents and grandparents tiny and short people? Looking at homes for sale, circa 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s, one can get claustrophobic, and it’s really because the living space was so small in the houses designed in those days. There are even bedrooms that were 8’ x 8’ in homes built in the 1950s. It’s hard to believe that living in small boxes like that was sufficient.

Looking at 55+ communities in Arizona, where most of the homes are called singlewide and doublewide mobile homes, and even though some were built from 2006 to 2014, it feels like you just stepped into the Twilight Zone, going back to the 1950s. The only thing that has changed is a new coat of paint and some newer kitchen appliances. It can actually feel depressing when you think of downsizing to a very small home of 1200 sq ft and smaller.
