Living in the city indeed gives us easy access to almost everything like malls, grocery stores, pharmacies, bars and restaurants, hospitals, and much more.
But with all these advantages, living in the city also comes with lots of disadvantages.
If we get tired of the city’s everyday hustle and bustle, we tend to go on a vacation or go to our favorite place to destress. However, these are just temporary solutions. Once we are back in the city, we also go back to our normal city life.
Have you ever considered living close to nature?
To someone who’s retired or for the senior citizens, this is a great idea, isn’t it? Living the remaining years of your life close to nature is probably something that you’ve dreamt of maybe once or twice during your youth.
Thankfully, there’s no age limit on creative living.
Actually, being in nature gives someone tons of benefits.
“The benefits of being in nature abound. When we get closer to it – be it untouched wilderness or a backyard tree – we do our brains and bodies a favor. This is true for all ages and walks of life; the outdoors offers one of the most reliable boosts to our mental and physical well-being. In fact, studies show that what you see, hear, and experience in your environment changes not only your mood, but how your nervous, endocrine, and immune systems work as well.”
Being close to nature is good, but what about living within nature?
Bryce Langston met with Jacob Witzling Hambly in one of his episodes for the YouTube channel ‘Living Big In A Tiny House‘. Hambly developed a cabin that’s built within the forest of Olympia in Washington.
According to the video, the property owner agreed to have the place developed into a space conducive for living. In return, the property owner granted him access to the cabin for 2 years.
And the cabin turned out to be enchantingly beautiful.
It’s literally inside nature, it almost feels like the cabin grew out of nowhere in the middle of the forest. It’s something we only see in fairy tales – it’s really mesmerizing.
The roof is coated in moss while big windows and exposed beams also reflect the beauty of the forest.
The chirping birds, wind blowing, trees dancing, crystal clear streaming water, the astonishing greeneries, and the kiss of the sun – everything is simply perfect.
Most of the materials used were reclaimed and salvaged materials.
The cabin comes complete with a kitchen sink, a stove, couch, stairs that go to the loft, a bed that’s facing the beauty of nature outside, and much more.
It also has water and electricity.
The place can be definitely considered as a “home”. Everything that you need in a home is there, well, maybe except internet and cable connection. But hey, it’s a small sacrifice if you really wanted to live in peace. If you want a quiet place to stay while enjoying the beauty of nature, this is the right place to be.
According to Hambly, he decided to leave the framing exposed to the naked eyes. It’s simply because, in building, it’s been a norm to hide the skeleton of a structure.
He wants to show people what’s holding a structure up.
In fact, he’s working on another project and it’s also within the forest.
He also said he loves building and looking at them after he built them. But for him, the best is when he sees people enjoying what he’s built.
For him, it makes him feel that he’s done something really special.
