It can be quite surprising sometimes just how well you can live in a small space. A little cabin can make a great getaway, but at the same time be easy and affordable to maintain. So you can spend your time enjoying the outdoors and special family time, instead of working on your list of things to do. As a weekend retreat, you really can be quite comfortable in as little as 600 square feet, give or take. It keeps the family close and makes a nice shelter from the weather but you will spend most of the time outdoors. Go off the grid and save more money with less bills. It is a great opportunity to remind yourselves of what is most important and how many things we use in our daily lives really are just luxuries. Gathering water and preparing food become close family activities. In the evenings you can play games, read, or have a nice chat, instead of watching TV. The warm glow of candlelight will relax you before a restful sleep. That is what a weekend retreat is all about. Getting away to rejuvenate and enjoy your family in a special, natural setting.
