Downsizing from a Tiny House to a Tinier House

home, sweet yurt

I’ve found my next tiny house and I’m trilled about it! I’ll be living in a yurt in inner Portland. I’ve wanted to try out yurt living for several years, so I’m glad to have a chance now. I feel especially excited about this one.

My Home, Sweet Yurt is tucked in a sweet little garden space with a climbing rosebush growing over the arched entryway. Through the dome skylight one can see the top of a fig tree, bamboo shoots, and a nearby maple tree. After falling in love with the skylight in the sleeping loft of Brit’s Bungalow, I’m delighted I’ll be able to sleep with a view of the sun, the moon, the stars, the rain, and the clouds again.

At 114 square feet with no loft, the yurt is even smaller than the tiny house on wheels I lived in last year. So I’ll be downsizing from a tiny house to an even tinier house. I’m looking forward to the smaller space because it’s going to help enforce My Things Challenge and a simple lifestyle. Stay tuned for more tiny adventures!

    Congratulations! I think it’s absolutely fantastic that you are able to live in many small and tiny homes, while you plan for your own future home. It’s incredibly smart of you to gather so much information about what you really want and need. I just finished reading this post from another tiny house blog and was struck by how honest this woman was about how much rushing through the process of getting into her tiny home has cost her in terms of daily comfort of living. Because she’s right, when you shrink your living space to such a degree, every design decision is a really huge one.
