We would absolutely love to live in one of these one day but....what to do with the children? Hmm. Details, details.
|To the left when you walk in.|
|Straight ahead when you walk in.|
|To the right of that window. The ladder leads to the loft and bed.|
|A view of the whole living room from the loft.|
|Looking back at the front door.|
|To the very right when you walk in, is the kitchen. The bathroom door is there on the left.|
|Looking up at the "bedroom."|
|The bath. River rock on the shower floor and ceiling tin on the walls.|
|Salvaged sink. When is the last time you saw 2 separate faucets?|
|Old windows saved from another house or building.|
|Old doors with doorknobs just like in my grandmother's house.|
|All these antique details are really neat.|
And OH! the beautiful smell of all the wood! The hardwood floors were also antique. It was just beautifully made.
|Good-bye Little House! We would love to live in you one day!|
I mean, instead shelves full of games, couldn't we just have a few decks of cards? You can play a lot of games with cards! Books are important, but you could get a Kindle or a Nook and do without shelves and shelves of books. (I don't want to, but you could.)
The bigger the area you live in, the more you fill it. If there is a shelf or mantle, you have to put things on them. We definitely do not live with just the necessities. And if we ever did get a tiny home, it would have to be bigger than the one we spent the night in. Still, I would love to go smaller. How about the Ingalls' home? That one would work just fine for me.
Except with A/C.
Hey, we're talking about simplifying, not losing our minds!
