I found this skinny house to be really interesting. I mean, it’s a 3-story cottage and it’s still pretty tiny! Not sure what else to say about it, so I gathered a few of my favorite quotes on simplicity to share with you and I’d love to hear your thoughts on the cabin and the quotes in the comments if you’d be willing to share.

3 of my Favorite Quotes on Simplicity

  1. Cute to look at but that’s about it. Must have a KILLER VIEW, as to the reason why the owner built such a “folly”, as things were called back then. I know 40 year old’s that couldn’t climb up 3 levels of stairs on a daily basis; I can’t imagine how many Ups & Down’s you’d have to do in this place. If this was in an Urban area, it would make sense, but in a Rural/Country area….again, must have a KILLER view of something that inspired the builder to go ^UP^ rather than . But, still cute as a bug!

  2. Clearly not for the unhealthy 40 year old that cannot climb stairs. This was built when people did not sit all day or drive to the corner shop.
