Guest Post by Reader who Lives in Mortgage-free Small Octagon House

We built this small octagon house in 1979 with mostly found/recycled materials that we pulled through the woods on a little path on a reinforced garden cart so we did it with no mortgage. Later on, we got a little crazy with the add-ons as you’ll see. And the sauna is near a river. While there are only 2 acres, it’s in the middle of the Green Mountain National Forest. I raised 4 children with no running water here. I chose voluntary simplicity (mostly voluntary). Oh, and one more, I built a tent platform then garden shed recently and my daughter made another studio with it.
