What rooms in your house are too big, which are too small and which are just right?

My kids don't even want to share with each other, and, most of the time, don't have to.

Hell, I'd rather not have to share with dh, but I do!

The house I grew up had one bathroom indoors but still had the outhouse in the back yard from the pre indoor plumbing days so we did have an option for those can not wait moments.

We have three. Cleaning isn't an issue, because dh and I alternate for the master, and the kids each clean one. :)

lol!! I guess if I went to a 2 bathroom and then tried to go back to a 1, it would be much harder. Since I have always only lived with 1, I never thought otherwise.

We only have one bathroom in our house right now, but there's a toilet in the basement in one corner. It's kind of odd that it's there, but from the houses we looked at when we found this one, it's pretty common around here. Some houses even have showers, that were installed when coal miners would come home filthy and needed to shower in the basement before stepping foot in the house. My grandfather got in that habit and always showered in the basement (the only door to the basement was even outside!)-- even long after he retired from coal mining. He only stopped when he was to frail to make it down the basement stairs.
