Living in the small.

February 10, 2011

“After a generation of having it all and wasting so much, perhaps it is time to consider keeping it small and preserving what we have before we waste more of our limited resources.” Tiny Texas Houses.

Our apartment here in Philadelphia is about 250 sq ft, and is made up with about 20% of salvage or reclaimed items. I feel pretty good about all of that to be honest. I mean we grow some veggies, Leigh cans, we do what we feel is right with our lives while living in a city. We make jokes about our little place being a cabin in the middle of Olde Kensington, but in a way it is. Leigh and I did most of the design of our place, from the layout to the work, so in short one can say that we love small places. Anyway today I came across a post on re-nest about this company in Texas that makes-builds small houses using 99% salvage or reclaimed items, WOW that is awesome! Everyone should take a coffee break this morning (or afternoon-night) and look around their site, and you can do that by simply clicking any of the photos above πŸ˜‰

    Very cool! and, btw, your place is so inspiring. as we talk about “needing more space”… i appreciate the reminders that what we have is way more than plenty. Granted, showering in a wooden barrel would probably get old fast…. it sure does look cute & charming in the photo! πŸ˜‰
