CAN OUR PROPERTIES BE SMALLER & SIMPLER?
I’ve really been thinking about this idea recently as a lot of people have started picking
up this new living option and blogging about it. You can check out one article about it here - https://matthewjamestaylor.com/small- house-benefits.
Our houses could be a lot smaller, especially if we start to spend more time outside, with our loved ones, away from the TV. As well as taking up a lot less land (so a current average plot of land could have a lot of it given over to sharing with other wild lives) small houses could still have inbuilt bird, bat and bee habitats and could still have wall climbers stretching out all over them. As they are a lot smaller, there is also an increased ease in building them from repurposed construction materials (instead of purchasing them new).
