As you probably already know, Henry David Thoreau has always been an inspiring role model for those of us seeking to simplify our┬álives. So right now in this post I’m showing you what his tiny cabin was like in case you ever wondered.
The savage lives simply through ignorance and idleness or laziness, but the philosopher lives simply through wisdom.
If you enjoyed Henry David Thoreau’s tiny cabin in the woods you’ll absolutely LOVE our free daily tiny house newsletter with even more! We should all remember our humble past and remember that big things come from tiny beginnings. Bear in mind he ate at friends home and basically used this temporary cabin as a home base. That said, there is certainly something to be said for reducing the crap we burden ourselves with.
Naturally, a larger wood shed, that held at least five cords of wood, would be more appropriate for New England weather. In addition, I’d also like to share some of my favorite quotes from Thoreau that might be inspiring to you.
An honest man has hardly need to count more than his ten fingers, or in extreme cases he may add his ten toes, and lump the rest.
It is astonishing as well as sad, how many trivial affairs even the wisest thinks he must attend to in a day; how singular an affair he thinks he must omit.


He has a passion for exploring and sharing tiny homes (from yurts and RVs to tiny cabins and cottages) and inspiring simple living stories.
Thank you Alex for the history, children and old people alike could still use these lessons.
I have, due to interesting circumstances, lost most of my possessions more than once, and discovered how little I truly need to be comfortable, and how easy it is to acquire more. For example, two daybeds or a daybed and futon couch may be sufficient to sleep, dine, study and entertain. Please enjoy, be sure to watch the video below, talk about it all in the comments, and re-share if you’d like to. When the mathematician would solve a difficult problem, he first frees the equation of all incumbrances, and reduces it to its simplest terms.
I love the winter, with its imprisonment and its cold, for it compels the prisoner to try new fields and resources. We invite you to send in your story and tiny home photos too so we can re-share and inspire others towards a simple life too.
Poor people, such as indentured servants living in similar circumstances would not have lived a tenth as well.
It is the unnecessary use of our resources that we want to stop: houses too large, businesses too wasteful, excessive consumption, excessive restrictions on the freedoms to house ourselves and our families in a reasonable way, etc.
I say, let your affairs be as two or three, and not a hundred or a thousand; instead of a million count half a dozen, and keep your accounts on your thumb nail.


I love to have the river closed up for a season and a pause put to my boating, to be obliged to get my boat in. There is a big difference between living in a tent in your back yard, and living in one somewhere in Alaska.
In the midst of this chopping sea of civilized life, such are the clouds and storms and quicksands and thousand-and-one items to be allowed for, that a man has to live, if he would not founder and go to the bottom and not make his port at all, by dead reckoning, and he must be a great calculator indeed who succeeds. Rather than a desk, try a clipboard or handheld computer; you could work anywhere in the forest.
This is an advantage in point of abstinence and moderation compared with the seaside boating, where the boat ever lies on the shore. It is easy to spout all this simplistic philosophy when it is only about you and your own needs, but in reality, we take care of many people in our lives, and simplicity has many forms and definitions, some of which would not fit into his book very neatly. I love best to have each thing in its season only, and enjoy doing without it at all other times. While you are pleased to get knowledge and culture in many ways, I am delighted to think that I am getting rid of them. I have never got over my surprise that I should have been born into the most estimable place in all the world, and in the very nick of time, too.
