Uhhh!! This is SO INSPIRING!
“Innermost house is about 12 feet sqare, there is no electricity, no hot water, and yet my husband and I lead a life of luxury here… You enter timeless time here, and without the distractions of modern life its easy to forget about everything except the moment.”
Seven years ago Diana and Michael Lorence moved to a 12-foot-square home without electricity in the coastal mountains of Northern California.
They’re not back-to-the-land types- they’re not growing their own food, nor raising animals-, but, like Thoreau, they were looking for a place where they could get away from the noise of society and focus on their inner lives.
For nearly 30 years they have lived in tiny houses, often in guest homes, though their current abode is the smallest and most fitting their needs. It was designed by Michael based on their experiences living in nearly 20 tiny homes across the country before finally settling here.
“Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.”
–Antoine de Saint-Exupery
