Question for you...

Could you live in one of these?

What if it looked like this on the inside?







What if it was only for a few years?

Lots of people could do this. I couldn't do this with my family unless we lived in a climate where they spent most of their time outside and the "house" was only for eating and sleeping.

I don't know....space away from others even family is really nice....would your kids like having friends come play, with no space their own? But im fasinated with the small house theory...but then I think about a year supply of food, or keeping kids clothing, or laundry, or where to hang coats/shoes/sporting equipment. Or where to store books, or kitchen appliances, or toys, sewing material, extra electronic cords...etc. But like the comment above, maybe if the weather is always pleasant, so there is a lot of outside living!
But good luck with whatever you do!

I want to live in a yurt... Why is it that every time I read your blog I feel like you have read my mind?

Wait did you get on the yurt kick because of our house search and my dear husband's quest for all things simplified? I think we could do it now that I know a bit more about them. When we were seriously considering them we loved the idea of "growing" more as needed. You can connect them so that you could have separate sleeping areas or a play room etc. mind you that gets expensive fast. We were seriously considering it until we looked at the figures. Unless you find a great deal on a used yurt (and even still they are not cheap) they are quite pricey. Not anywhere near as expensive as a house, but enough that most of us would not be able to pay for without a loan. Most banks find them "risky" and will not give loans or will only give them with huge interest and down payments. Can it be done? Yes! For us just wasn't the right time. And now we built a house that I wouldn't trade for the world! ;)
