When we put our first yurt up in 2009 we instantly fell in love with the small but perfectly formed living space. There was something quite liberating about living very minimally. Only the really necessary items counted and suddenly a couple of mugs, plates, a woodburner, kettle, bed, sofa, etc. seemed all we needed! Why do we have so much stuff?!
I've recently discovered a whole movement around small space, or tiny house living - very inspiring. Even just taking on some of the minimalist living ideas, and clever solutions for storage can transform the way we live.
