Small House Or Big?

An essay I have written on the size of house I prefer and why.

What Do I Prefer?

I have seen many houses in my years on Earth.
And I have come to the conclusion that I would prefer a smaller house rather than a big house.

I have lived in a small house for thirteen years before finally moving to a bigger, wider house.
I could say that I didn't want to leave my small house. It cherished alot of memories. Lots of sleepovers, parties etc.

Once I moved into a bigger house, I started to get adjusted to it.
I slept my first night there in the guest room alongside my family. The reason was because my room didn't even have a bed, yet.

It's been one year since we've moved and I am enjoying it now.

A Reason

The reason I prefer smaller houses is because they are really cosy and there is a less chance of hearing squeaks and creaks every night, thus corrupting your mind into thinking that there is a ghost.

I have a cousin in California who resides in a cul-de-sac in a small house that is about 40% as big as my new house. I've stayed over there for a couple of weeks and that was in 2007. I had a really marvellous time at their house. It was very cosy and warm and it provided great indoor temperature: Not too high, not too low.

On the other hand, I have another cousin in Illinois who, unlike my Californian cousin, has a mansion-type house.
I mean, a huge garage, alarm system, intercoms in every room, basement, cinema screen TV and a whole lot of other cool stuff.

I can honestly say that their house is excellent and fun to reside in.
I love sleeping in their basement. It's really comfortable and relaxing because of the air-conditioner.

But...it is a really big house and that sort of creeped me out.
Did I mention that I slept in the dark, large basement...alone?

Their house has a lot of rooms and if you are not careful, there is a slight chance you might get lost in there.
My cousin said that he once did.

Also, at night, if you roam the dark hallways, you might feel as if you expect a monster or a smiling clown or anything spooky to jump out of the shadows and grab you.
Heck! If a human did that, I'd jump out of my skin.

In a small house, you don't walk around much and you'd feel completely safe there.

In a large house, despite the alarm system, I still feel as if I'm being preyed upon by a stranger. Suppose he bypassed the alarm system?! Then what?!

Conclusion

So, conclusion, when in a small house, I feel as if I'm at every corner of the house and thus I feel secure.

When in a big house, I feel like a little boy trapped as the corners of the house close in on me. The creaks and groans of the house would be the least of my problem!

its not the smallness or bigness of anything,
yes anything,
that matters,
as size is not all,
i'd say we want a home,
not a house,
strength not only length,
time be with us that's all

a home is the best
be it the east or west

Loverme is right. A house is best whether east or west. BIg or small, I like them all! But big is hollow, making me feel shallow. So I prefer small, nor does it have fear not apall

I agree with loverme. If the house is a home, it is worth living in regardless of size.
I also agree with you, SiddiQ... smaller houses are far warmer and cosier. Also they are much friendlier for people like me, with no sense of direction whatsoever ;)

I like taking both sides when I empathise with both viewpoints ;)
I'm a Taurus actually. But foremost I am a disbeliever in horoscopes.

Thank goodness... people who avidly follow/believe in horoscopes irritate me to no end :P
What do you mean by 'this site doesn't permit fellowship'?
