I live in a part of the country where old log cabins still dot the hillsides. These cabins are weathered and worn, but there is a simple beauty to them. They remind us of simpler times, before internet and satellite TV, some before electricity or even running water. They are not status symbols or social gathering places. They were not built with master suites or lots of storage space. They were not built with resale in mind. They were built for very basic reasons- shelter and security.
I believe the small house movement is nothing new. It’s more of a reawakening to what’s really important in life and a longing for those simpler times.
