How Living Small Can Make A Big Difference

A new eco-blogger has attracted a lot of positive attention for providing a step-by-step account of her transition into creating a carbon-neutral home.

A new eco-blogger has attracted a lot of positive attention for providing a step-by-step account of her transition into creating a carbon-neutral home.

I’ve often heard people say that living sustainably is too difficult and simply not possible, but an Australian blogger decided to find out for herself.

Inhabitat has some details about this tiny house sustainable living project and how one woman approached it. 

“Thanks to Jennifer’s touch, no one would ever suspect that this cute farmhouse cottage was once an industrial shipping container. The exterior is complemented with large windows to let the natural light shine through, modern porch lights and a charming stone path that leads up to the front door. There’s a large refrigerator, convection oven and four-burner stove inside the kitchen, with a roll-away island to allow for additional counter space.”

Jennifer bought 42 acres of farmland and had a completely blank space to start her journey from scratch. 

What I love about the project is that it’s not just about creating an eco-friendly space. It’s about all the comforts that you would expect in a modern home as well.

There’s no lack of technology, and Jennifer doesn’t need to hand wash her laundry or wrap up in multiple layers of clothes when it gets colder.

It’s definitely a story to keep track of if you want to reduce your carbon footprint with some new ideas.
