As we continue to ruin our planet by ripping out everything we possibly can, more and more people are entertaining the idea of living differently–and by differently, I mean off the grid. There are, after all, more ways to power a lightbulb than just by plugging it into the city’s power grid.
With the idea of living sustainably comes the increasing popularity of tiny homes. My mum used to tell me that she didn’t need more space, she needed less stuff. She’s a smart woman. A Slovakian Architecture company called Nice Architects recently built a tiny little house that allows the owner to live completely off the grid in a perfectly laid out living area that has a serious emphasis on minimalism.
