I spent the weekend at a Cowboy Action Shoot in Mountain Home, Arkansas. We laughed with cowboy friends and cheered on the winners. The next morning we went for a drive to research DH’s family a bit.
In Izard County, AR, in the small town of Calico Rock, an 10’x19′ log cabin has been saved and restored. The cabin was built around 1858 by my husband’s 5th great grandparents, James Finis & Phoebe Walker Trimble.
In this tiny space they conceived and raised 10 children. Ten! That’s 12 people living in 190 square feet.
Rather blows my idea of necessary personal space to smithereens.
Granted there’s a loft, but still…
Could you live with 11 of your family members in here?
