The other day BoingBoing posted a ‘photo gallery’ from the newly-released  Tiny Homes: Simple Shelter by Lloyd Kahn, a book of the possibilities for small space living of all kinds, from Colin Doane’s sauna, above, in Queen Charlotte Islands with green whale jawbones lashed to the front rafters to this spectacular little cabin in Montana’s mountains…

Tiny Homes: Simple Shelter is a book that inspires fantasies as well as practical thinking about what it really means to live in a smaller footprint – well!

    Whale bones in Colorado: new meaning, or a new term: global vernacular. Nice place, however.

    The sauna with the whale jawbones is in Queen Charlotte Islands (Pacific Northwest, off the coast of Vancouver, where they have a ton of whales), not Colorado. Nice snark, however.

    I love the concept of a simpler life due to all the complexities there are in life…
    Burning out on two jobs with endless mortgage payments, loss of jobs, health, etc.
    I am searching for like minded friends who share this same vision with simple
    living, living off the land organically, becoming self sufficient, etc. I would like to
    sell or TRADE 25 acres of bare land in exchange for an acre and a tiny house. Can
    anyone help? My land is paid but I paid the price and I became ill having to work for
    it. I would like to downsize..Miya
