Living Simply in a Tiny Off Grid Cabin

Simple living is a topic that needs to be explored more in-depth on our Natural Building Blog. This lovely couple shares their experiences living a simple, sustainable, off grid life in a small home. Their advice applies to natural builders and homesteaders in general. Note the earthbag dome at 3:42.

“Tom, Sarah, and their daughter Neesa all live in a tiny 20sqm off grid cabin on a property on the Coromandel Peninsula, New Zealand. Instead of paying rent, they share the work of looking after the land with the owners and both families share in the farm’s abundant produce.

This film was made as part of our Living the Change series. For this series we’re traveling around New Zealand making short documentary films about permaculture farms, tiny houses, and sustainability.”

Living the Change
“Living the Change is a series of short documentary films that focus on permaculture, tiny houses, backyard gardeners, natural buildings, simple livers, and anyone with an inspiring story to tell. We want to share the stories of people pioneering the transition to a sustainable way of life that is good for people and the planet.”
Part 1 in the series From Finance to Farmer is excellent
