R19, 280 square feet? Are you serious? How is that possible? Is the cabin just a bed and a cooking stove next to it, with an outhouse in back? I honestly think the bathroom in our master suite is more than 280 Sq. Ft. I am not being a condescending ass, but truly curious how you live in such a small space? I think the cabins on the floating arks in the movie 2012 were larger than 280 sq. feet.

My apartment in NYC is about 700 sq ft and costs $2150 a month

My house in the Hamptons was 1600 sq ft, bought for $155,000 in 1992. We've since added a great room and a a 100 sq ft bathroom to make it about 2000 sq ft. We also added onto and finished our basement, so it has a living room, bathroom, bedroom and mini kitchen. The finished basement is about 650 sq ft. Oh, and there's a storage room and a utility room including the water filtration system. We also added a pool and a deck and a shed.

Our taxes are just under $3,000 a year. My sister lives in a shitty part of Long Island and pays more than $6,000 a year in taxes. Nicer parts of Long Island pay taxes of $10,000 to $21,000 a year. We pay lower taxes because we don't have a lot of services out here (like street lights) and flaglots are used extensively in housing developments rather than making multiple public roads. I am on a flaglot, so I have to maintain a 300 ft paved area to my house during snowstorms and pay to fill on potholes, but we pay about $100 three or four times a year for plowing and $500 ever ten years for pothole repair.

Doesn't anyone care about carbon footprint anymore or have we given up? Many of you are taking more than your fair share of resources with your excessively large homes. As for those recycling refrigerator boxes and abandoned wood sheds for housing, good for you!

by Anonymousreply 6308/14/2011

[quote]Doesn't anyone care about carbon footprint anymore or have we given up? Many of you are taking more than your fair share of resources with your excessively large homes.

So, only large families who over-reproduce should be allowed to live in large homes? Or maybe all existing housing should be partitioned into small, uniformly sized units?

I prefer large (not massive), old houses and have no interest in tearing down or building anew. Better yet, I don't indulge in an extravagance which no amount of fussing over footprints and symbolic efficiencies is likely to recover from: no kids.

[quote]Having children is the surest way to send your carbon footprint soaring, according to a new study from statisticians at Oregon State University.

[quote]The study found that having a child has an impact that far outweighs that of other energy-saving behaviors.

[quote]Take, for example, a hypothetical American woman who switches to a more fuel-efficient car, drives less, recycles, installs more efficient light bulbs, and replaces her refrigerator and windows with energy-saving models. If she had two children, the researchers found, her carbon legacy would eventually rise to nearly 40 times what she had saved by those actions.

[quote]%E2%80%9CClearly, the potential savings from reduced reproduction are huge compared to the savings that can be achieved by changes in lifestyle,%E2%80%9D the report states.

Apologies, R72/R76, I didn't mean to sound so bitchy; and you'd have lots of company counting unfinished basement square footage with the many realtors (in jurisdictions that allow it.)

The long held standard was to count finished interior spaces used for living. In most places where houses are heated, for instance, that would exclude an unheated, unfinished attic; likewise for basement space used as raw storage space with a concrete floor and a furnace in one corner and washer and dryer in another (but if the walls and ceilings and floors are finished to something approximate to the the living space above, and the space is heated and has natural light, it's livable space.) Closets, circulation, and other heated ancillary spaces adjacent to finished rooms are reasonably counted as living or "habitable" space.

When they can get away with it, unscrupulous realtors sometimes count garage space, open front porches, decks, raw basements, raw attics, and anything else. In some jurisdictions, realtor groups or local laws are strict on what can be counted as square footage; in others, there's wild exaggeration from some unethical or inexperienced agents.
