Last year I posted about simple living about this time, but sadly, it's long gone with our other archives lost in Word Press. It went along the lines that we could save so much money if we lived in a tent down by the lake. Well, apparently, I have that "bug" again. Last month I thought it would be brilliant to sell off all our things, except for the bare necessities and get an RV, but Curtis nixed the idea, and even the kids did too, but I was able to talk them into it enough that they gleefully point out every RV we pass. Well, last week I found something even better. YURTS!
If I haven't mentioned it before we live in a tiny house. We have five kids crammed into two bedrooms, only one of which has a closet. We also have about 1300 sq. feet, but no garage and tiny everything: tiny closets, bathrooms, rooms, etc. We desperately need a bigger house, but I have made do and will continue to do so; big houses do not come readily available to renters. So, I googled "tiny home living" and found Yurts. Originally they are tents the Mongolians used, but environmentalist have found a way to make them here. They are pretty efficient, solar powered, don't need much plumbing, and you get to live in the great outdoors and enjoy all the benefits of listening to crickets chirp, the wind blow and wolves howl. Sounds perfect. Live off the land. Enjoy simple living.
Curtis nixed that too. I don't know why!
Check them out in the gallery. What do you think?
