Mortgage Freedom, Environmental Responsibility, and Love of Nature

fb_img_1487304009534

I saw this on Facebook. It is not just the Mortgage Freedom that makes Tiny House living attractive, it is knowing that you did not kill more trees than you needed to. You did not over-consume the world’s dwinding Natural Resources.

Tiny, simple living means having time to enjoy the glow of a sunrise through the bare winter tree branches. Having time to listen to the sound of wind in the trees, the song of birds, the chatter of squirrels. Having time to notice the moon and the stars.

The 24 foot Cider Box plan called for 6 clerestory windows, but we expanded the plan for a 26 foot house. We put in 7 clerestory windows at the same size (30 x 18 inches).

We put brown trim around the windows, and here is our front door! (No door knob yet.)
