Downsizing: to a "Shotgun Shack"

Below, today’s inspiring video from

Having lived in a 20-foot diameter yurt for nearly 20 years, I can attest to the pleasures of living in a small space.

(My dream, now that my son Colin has moved from the Boston area to the house next door: to have my other son, Sean, and his family to also move here from Massachusetts, into the house where I live now; I’ll build a yurt in the back yard for myself. First we have to change the local zoning laws here to accommodate backyard yurts. All in good time. . .)

So, imagine living here, in this little, so-called, “shotgun shack”:

Custom built, $20,000, 320 square feet, tall ceilings, a loft, plus, lots of extra mattresses for overnight guests, full appliances, set of beautiful china . . .

“It’s not what you don’t have. It’s what you do have. That’s what you focus on.”

A single dresser: one drawer for mom, one for dad, one for their son, and a common drawer for socks.

“It helps not to waste food if you don’t have a lot of space.”

Best of all: “Just getting from one end of the house to the other . . . when you’re walking through each room you’re actually brushing each other. It forces you to interact, or even be more pleasant.”
