From Lloyd Kahn’s blog, Scott Evans on building his “Big Sky Retreat” (another yurt!) I guess that I live in a relatively “tiny home.” When I looked for a place to rent in Elkhorn, I was definitely looking to simplify my life. Did that; I sold a 3 bedroom house, and sold and gave away 50 years worth of accumulated personal and family clutter. But I find that habits of possession can persist. Downsizing is just the first step. We live in an accumulative society, and if we don’t learn to let go and circulate and recycle the goods (and stop producing useless junk) on a daily basis, we’ll drown in it.
Scott was inspired by Lloyd Kahn’s book, Tiny Homes, Simple Shelter:

* Tumbleweed Tiny House Company
* Shelter Publications
