Their Vermont Tiny Cabin in the Woods

Katie was living in New York City, when she watched a documentary on minimalism and started questioning everything — why was she running the rat race? Was this really the right choice? That led her to quit her job and travel the world — and eventually to Drew. He was also into travel and slow living, and they ended up in Sri Lanka living in small rooms and rarely buying anything.

But when 2020 forced them back to the U.S., they realized how hard it was to continue simple living in our wildly consumerist culture! But a cabin in the remote Vermont woods living off the land? That was about as close as they could get! You’ll love the tour of this small cabin and how they make it work for their personalities and life goals.

  • Katie and Drew were both simple-living people who ended up in Sri Lanka together where they lived with very little.
  • The events of 2020 forced them back to the US, but they didn’t want to jump into normal life again.
  • Owning a cabin instead of a traditional tiny home gave them extra room to entertain, which was important to them.
  • They have an open concept downstairs, with a full kitchen and spacious living room.
  • There are two loft bedrooms connected by a catwalk that they can stand in.

    I love the open concept. What are the outside dimensions and/or square footage of this home?
