Backyard Bungalow.

Thursday, April 17, 2014

This house, featured today in The New York Times, is 84 square feet. It belongs to a woman named Dee Williams and it's located in a friend's backyard in Olympia. It's solar-powered but lacks a shower, and provides just enough space for its inhabitant's 300-odd belongings. But with so little to store - and a history of health problems - it's all she needs. Dee says, "Living in a little house made sense for me, it clicked. It gave me a chance to live close to my friends and be happy with the time that I have." (Read the full article by Steven Kurutz, here.)

we're also downsizing but not worthy compared to this.

Oh my! Her little bungalow is adorable! I don't think I could minimize enough to do it though, but good on her!

I understand her thinking. Bravo to doing it. To me, it's all up to your attitude. You can do anything you want to do.

It's a dream of mine to own one of these amazing little houses on a trailer, what a great thing to be able to move your home anywhere :)
