    Pretty nice tiny house. Looks comfortable and has some nice finishes. Did I miss the picture of the loft? Neat exterior.

      No, there isn’t a photo of the loft but we do get a small glimpse of it in the 3rd and 4th photo down…

      I am genuinely curious how people survive sans freezer!

        It may seem strange, after all in the states alone refrigeration accounts for around 14% of our total energy usage and some homes may have multiple fridges, but millions of people in Africa and Asia are forced to live without fridges either because there is no power available to their communities, or they simply cannot afford the initial cost of the appliance as well as the daily running costs in terms of electricity.

        While some people choose to live that way, and of course people lived for centuries before modern conveniences.

        So, usually, the same way people lived back before we had modern appliances… Alternative methods of preserving foods like canning, dehydration, pickling, etc. can allow stockpiling of food that doesn’t require refrigeration… It’s mostly cold drinks you would be missing out on…

        Some people, in the nicer climate zones especially, grow their own gardens, run their own homestead farms, etc. and just eat fresh food every day… While people in colder climate zones can have more concern about getting food than storing it as some areas can be pretty cool year round or most of the year… A few, may just live near or on a mountain and going a little higher can get as cold as they need… Kinda how the Ancient Roman Empire made Sherbet and later in the 16th century Italy, icecream …

        While there’s off-grid methods like keeping a root cellar, being near a river or spring allows the use of a Spring House, or you could harvest ice in the winter and store it in a Ice House, insulated structure, to use during warmer weather in an old fashioned ice box, which is what was predominantly used before the modern fridge… and was a practice that dates back over 1000 years to Japan and China…

        Other alternatives to modern technology include options like the zeer pot or more modern version of the MittiCool Refrigerator, which uses clay and evaporation to create a cool environment to store food. Especially, in areas that are warm but dry climates. You can even just use some clay planter pots and some water to create one…

        Sometimes just burying a insulated container a few feet into the ground is enough to provide preservative conditions… Or using just sand in a shaded area, you can store root vegetables for months…

        While on the high tech cutting edge technology side they’re developing an odorless, non-sticky biopolymer gel to chill food. Uses zero energy and as it both cools and cuts off oxygen it can preserve the food for a very long time…
