Could I really Live Permanently in a Small House?

After Hurricane Katrina I began to think about the importance of small, temporary housing. As various housing designs began to appear, I began to think of the possibility of living in a smaller environment permanently.
Like many boomers, I have downsized over the years. I moved from a larger house to a smaller house, then from a larger apartment to a smaller apartment. In the apartment I live in now, there are unused closet and cabinet spaces (ok just a little). I like the feeling of not being crammed into this apartment. I like the feeling of space around me.
I also like spending 5 minutes to pick up the apartment as opposed to hours in the house. As I think about retirement and country living with limited funds, I begin to see how these small houses might fit into my next downsize.

Hey, if anyone out there needs a guinea pig and would like to invite me to use it for a week or so ..... I don't know if it's doable but I think it is worth consideration. I'm just saying....
