The Montreal houses I was raised in maxed out at 4500 sq. ft or so, for four humans, two pups. Both were over 100 years old... and are pretty standard size-wise for their area. I moved to Vancouver at 18 and lived in an under 800 sq. ft. two bedroom with two roommates... I had the smallest of the rooms, which was approximately 70 sq. ft- actually supposed to be a solarium. Underbed storage saved my life. Big adjustment from having my own floor growing up... I have since lived in a range of (modest) apartment sizes in Montreal and Toronto, and am currently sharing a bit over 500 sq. ft. quite comfortably with my boyfriend. I would take 500 sq. ft. over 5000 any day.

I found this chair dumped at the curb by my old apartment, in pretty sweet condition. Owned it stat. It was totally worth carrying six blocks and up three flights of stairs in the middle of the summer. It's been with me ever since. Love.
