Last night brought something of an epiphany.
I want a tiny house. No! Wait. I live in a tiny house!
Then BAM! It hits me.
We already live in a ‘tiny house’—have since we moved into the cottage in ’96—it’s just that I’ve never really looked at it with seeing eyes until now.
Our tiny house is a comfortable 700 square feet, one bedroom, one bath, eat-in kitchen, living room / office / library with a three season porch across the front that gives us studio space for all of our arts and crafts. By tiny house standards, it’s twice the space of most. It’s really everything we need. So why am I asking for something different?
See what I mean—
In addition, we are surrounded by a garden that we both enjoy, with rural views not normally available within City Limits.
Our tiny house is affordable, comfortable and ever so livable. Do we wish it was located in a quiet, gentle hamlet somewhere other than California? Absolutely. Does it make sense to kick over the traces where God has so obviously blessed us and search out a place to *gasp* start over? Absolutely Not!
Told you I had an epiphany.
So…from here on you can expect to read more posts about our tiny house called Contentment Cottage in a very real and positive light.
