All Things Home in the World of
Natural Living Design...
I went to the woods because I wished to
live deliberately, to front only the essential
facts of life, and see if I could not learn what
it had to teach, and not, when I came to die,
discover that I had not lived.
Henry David Thoreau

In light of our nations economy, people are going to have to begin making decisions that may include
reducing the size of their housing. There are alternatives that do not have to necessarily mean
compromising dignity or design when getting re-acquainted with efficiency.
Doing more with less, instead of living less with more...
Whimsical as these imaginative haven's are...The concept of making change with a sense of adventure, is
the best way to ward off the effects of disappointments to "stuff" attachments and situations that
are calling for a change. When it comes to new choices with housing, beginning to re-think inside the box...
Is a healthy beginning.
Just make sure there's room for your mini trampoline!
