When people acquire a piece of land, often, their first thought is to erect a large home on it. But as this interesting project demonstrates, we can live much more lightly on the land. This plot in Scotland comprises almost a hectare (just under 2.5 acres) of marginal land but will accommodate a wooden cabin tiny home, only around 8m long and 4m wide (c. 34 sq m).
The plan is to manage the land to increase biodiversity, restoring and managing an area of native woodland, creating a forest garden centred around a pond in the base of a natural depression, and creating smaller areas for the cultivation of heritage grains and legumes, and a terraced kitchen garden for the inhabitant.
