Tiny House

How much should we get rid of? What do we keep? What do we store? What is important to us? A few family photos, pottery and paintings made by family and friends. And, of course, books, so there would need to be shelves. Proper space for cooking and wine and small (very small), intimate gatherings. Room for conversation and laughter – but we can always carry those two things outside unless the weather is inclement. Will there be room for a bathtub, where I can be alone with my thoughts, soak, read, meditate? Just how minimal can we make our life together in order to make it full?
