Small does not mean compact but just enough size for the family. My plan to move into the countryside is to live in a bungalow with 3 bedrooms, that would be one master's bedroom, one for the housemaid and a spare bedroom. With a big land of maybe 1 hectare that would be ideal. My niece built a 4-bedroom house in a big rural lot. The bedroom are gigantic that needed air conditioning for each room. Come to think of it, the rural area has a cooler climate so I wonder why they are using the air conditioner.
