We're building a tiny (1000 sq. ft.) summer house in shape of a barn. We have a snoring problem so will have two identical bedrooms linked with a master bathroom with pocket doors on either side, creating a "suite" more or less.
My question is how small can I go with the width of the bedrooms (queen bed in each). I'm in the vicinity of 10 - 11 feet with my plans. I want to keep the footprint as small as possible but don't want to kick myself forever over not adding a few feet either.

Sarah built a guest bedroom in her St. Paul House that was 10x11, and wished that she had increased it by just a foot. 11x11 would be about as small as you could go without it being too cramped, in her opinion.
I agree - I use 11x11 as my minimum for a room with a Queen bed. With a single occupant in each of your two, you might be fine with 10x11, but you would preserve your resale value if you go a bit larger.
