Cottage without Closets & Cupboards

"Prepare thy work without,
and make it fit for thyself in the field;
and afterwards build thine house."
~ Proverbs 24:27

I thought it would be fun to do a series on our  homestead which we have been living on for only eight months… Don't we all like to peek into other people's places? (Or am I the only curious one?) This is the first property we have ever owned. We rented and saved the first twelve years of our married life which led to this 25 acre prairie farm. To purchase land is one thing but money to embellish it (when you have a homestead) is a whole other subject. We bought with the above Proverb in mind. Our goal for the house itself was that all we would do was paint the interior to make it livable and then begin focusing on an income (per the Proverb, we would be building our barn first, so to speak).

The following posts will include pictures of our old farm house which has no closets and practically no cupboards and this is what we did with a budget of almost zero… Perhaps you can glean some ideas, if anything, on living in small spaces. Like I had mentioned in an earlier post, we traded a smaller house (1,200 square feet) for a larger amount of land and are glad we did.


  1. I'm a curious one too. :-) I would LOVE to see pictures!

  2. I'm always curious to see what storage solutions others come up with, and pictures are always great! We just moved to a new house too and it is lacking in closet space as well. My hubby found a couple of entertainment centers for $25 each (in great condition) and we are using those as closets!

  3. i am very excited to see pics and read about your journey! coming from homemaking link-up.

  4. Thank you for your interest! I will certainly try and find the before photos!
