Okay....

My 7 daughters would have a problem with the single composting toilet.

She probably pesters the neighbors for her bi-weekly shower or bath.

I bet she braids her arm pits, too.

I researched these Tiny Homes for a possible hangar office. You can buy a ready-made one for around $65,000.

Or, you can pick up a 15 year old 3 bedroom, 2 bath home with a two car garage and all the modern conveniences in North Reno for around $80,000.

Duh!

Note she is alone. Note she is an insufferable uber-lib econut. Note she is strange.

Isn’t that special? What a whackadoo. Either she smells really, really bad or she’s borrowing someone elses running water to bathe. I guess if you don’t actually own that particular benefit of modern technology you can still feel smug about yourself.

She’s weird, but it’s a cute little house. Not the way that I would want to live though.

Imagine festive Thanksgiving and Christmas with all the trimmings, buffet of goodies to eat, Grampa in his favorite chair, the laughter and craziness of noisy grandkids....

Well at least she puts her money where her mouth is, so to speak. Got to give her credit for that. Unlike the hypocrites like Al Gore who talk the talk but live in sprawling mansions and fly around in private jets.

If I was short on money and lived alone, I could get used to a place like that.

My 83-year old mom bought a building like that and paid my son to remodel it for her. Not to live in, mind you. She makes quilts there. Goes in the real house to potty and shower and stuff. My son did put both heat and A/C in for her but I’m pretty sure she has no plans to live in there. Then again, she’s about as Conservative as you can get and laughs at eco-nuts.

LOL. this gal has no idea as to what simple living is really all about.

Little over 40 years ago in rural Alaska, my family and I had a go at simple living, up close and personal.

Of course when the oportunity arose, we did not hesitate to avail ourselves for better things.

Not for me, I have Big House Syndrome. But wish I didn’t! Good for her if she is content in that container.

Actually it’s not a house, but an RV since it sits on a trailer and has a license plate.

Probably needs to go to the dump to dump her composted dumps, and to the river to bathe and do her laundry.

I could live in a small house as long as I have a decent kitchen and bathroom. I will need a large detached garage(minimum 3 bay) and an unfinished basement under the house...maybe one under the garage too. And a good sized patio with a storage shed. Maybe two storage sheds. The patio should have a built in gas grill and bar and the yard should be very large(minimum one acre) and fenced in. Plenty of sidewalk and driveway.

With those things I could get buy with a 500 ft^2 house and not even feel like I’m sacrificing.

Yurts were REAL popular in the thirteenth century when the Mongols brought them West. And, yes, they avoided running water too.

The rest of the world lives without running water? Really lady? Have you even been outside the US?

Let me clue you in on a little secret, MOST OF THE WORLD HAS RUNNING WATER. It is not always drinkable and you may need to tie a mesh over your faucet to keep the tadpoles and other critters from plonking in your soup pot but you have running water.

No one likes toting water buckets so even in remote areas of the world you will usually find some kind of running water system.
