Maxwell and Sara reserve space for things they loveā€”like cooking. "We invested in having a really nice cooktop and a really nice stove," Maxwell says.

While living in such a small home wasn't their original plan, Maxwell and Sara have grown to like it. "Honestly, we've never found a place that we loved as much as our little home," Maxwell says. "And, you know, the community makes a huge difference. We could live all the way out in deepest Brooklyn, have a lot of space, but we wouldn't have the vibrant community and the friends we have on the block."
