A movement I'm digging.

The small house movement is something I can really get behind.
I love any emphasis on quality over quantity - especially when it comes to good design. 
Plus I think small spaces really work your creativity muscles. 
Necessity, as they say, is the mother of invention.
I am inclined to agree.
I am also inclined to favor the sort of abode that requires a little figuring out to make it work.
We have definitely had to push the bounds of functionality in our current residence.
It keeps things exciting and makes life a tad more interesting.

So right now I am wrestling with the notion of buying a wee little domicile.
Something like a garage or a shed on a really great plot of land.
You know, something we can make all our own.
Every teeny-tiny square inch.
And in this struggle (don't tell Ryan) I think my impulse is winning.
My hubs, you see, is not as keen on the 500 square foot requirement of such digs.
But I would happily reside in any one of these structures:

  1. At first I thought I read wrong when you said you wanted to by a garage or shed as a "domicile", but after seeing/reading those links, I LOVE it! What a great/fun/unique idea! Maybe one day I will be tempted to jump on that! :)

  2. Wouldn't it be such a lovely adventure? And such a departure from the every increasing trend to go big. Some day... I hope!

  3. Wow that gives new meaning to downsizing for sure. They are adorable and if anyone could pull it off Leah, it would be you for sure.
    ..and Jerrilyn think how cheap you could get something like that in Arizona? Go for it!


Tell me what you think about that...
