Tiny homes are becoming popular.
We are realizing the importance of space…the space we actually need to live comfortably.
If I had the opportunity to build another home, it would, undoubtedly, be much, much smaller than Bealtaine Cottage.
Small pieces of coppiced wood has fed the wood-burning stove, keeping all snug and cosy.
This was a decision I made out of a challenge, to prove that it was possible to be warm and comfortable through winter…and it is more than possible, it is a new-found freedom!
This is possible with a multi-faceted approach: one small, medium or even big living space; masses of insulation; small wood-burning stove; low energy lamps; a sofa bed, or, as in my case a bed that doubles as a sofa; woollen blankets and rugs; thick curtains and menu plan for cooking one-pot meals on the stove!
I am a fan of the Tiny Home movement for many reasons, but, primarily because this way of living empowers one…absolutely! The more one can conserve and live minimally, the more power one actually has !
