More than 8 years ago this husband and wife (and their two cats) chose to downsize into a 600 sq. ft. cottage.
They admit that they’ve had a few challenging moments but they appreciate even more the lessons that simple living has taught them.
When we get ourselves to start simplifying, we really start to get to know what it is we truly need and appreciate most in life.
And this goes to show you that tiny living, simple living, minimalism, or whatever we want to call it, isn’t a “one size fits all” kind of thing.

In other words, you don’t have to go to as small as 200 sq. ft. with your family to enjoy the benefits of simplifying your life.
I encourage you to enjoy the video tours of their mortgage-free cottage below:
And while you watch, begin to think about how you want to create your own version of a simpler life (maybe with a tiny house, cottage, cabin, apartment, studio, yurt, RV, etc.) and consider sharing your ideas in the comments below.
Simple Living in 600 Sq. Ft. Cabin
Most of the materials they used to build the cabin were bought at flea markets, auctions, and antique stores.
Some of the materials were bought on sale at home improvement stores but everything was gathered over the course of a few years to eventually build their cottage/cabin.
Check out the inside below:

And I’m curious, how do you see yourself (and your family, spouse, significant other, etc.) living the simple life?
