I live in a 32 foot yacht. Tiny space describes it well. Everything has to be put away. All spaces have multiple uses. The good thing about a yacht is all the storage spaces. I love it. There is an economy and modesty of living that really suits my thinking on how much earth we need to use. If I want to bring something on to the boat, something has to come off to make way for it. This really cuts down on the amount of crap you buy.
Iíve just built a house, and have followed the same principle. It is high-specced, but the costs of doing that are low because there isnít much of it.
There is no question we need to move away from big inefficient houses, but that doesnít mean any sacrifices if the space is well thought out.
Unlikely Iíll ever go back to the land, but if I do, it will be to somewhere like the house I built.
Small is beautiful.
