We knew, when we were designing our home, that living small would demand each room to do double or triple duty. Ed's office is also the guest room; the laundry sink doubles as a bath sink; the living room combines dining, kitchen and Fran's office; a hall way is also a library; and the guesthouse bedroom is also an exercise area. Even the wall bed must serve double duty with a table on the back side. But, we don't stop there. A pole we put in the lawn must pull its weightx2 too. It holds an umbrella to create a pleasant area to sit and then the same holder supports our clothes line.
