There is a growing movement of people building and living in tiny houses. Small spaces require the occupants to simplify their lives, to rethink what constitutes a home and how we each approach that space. In a culture obsessed with the acquisition of ‘stuff’, there is something very appealing in this scaling down; small living spaces require the occupants to re-evaluate what is important; limited space challenges us to have a greater clarity about the difference between want and need, and in doing so, find a greater balance between having and being.
The following film is about a beautiful little cabin in the Olympic Rainforest built by Jacob Witzling. Constructed from reclaimed and salvaged materials, situated in the heart of the forest, it is a lovely example of living big in a small space.
