Ennie and I watched a documentary last night that we just stumbled upon on Netflix: Tiny.
It’s an interesting idea that I don’t think I can handle for myself for a long period of time. The idea is to whittle down what you need down to the bare minimum. These are folks that live in a house that’s usually less than 200 square feet. Some are much smaller still; the smallest that was on the show was 84 square feet — or about the size of my bathroom.
I guess I get my fill of this when I’m on my motorcycle camping trips. Narrow down everything that you need to just what I can carry. I think I wind up with around five or six cubic feet of stuff.
I can manage that for a little while. But I don’t think that I can sustain that for a long period of time. For one I have more tools than can fit in the tiny houses of the show.
While it’s not for me, it certainly is an interesting thought exercise.
