Simple Solar Homesteading

There is a whole industry built around designing small appliance and fixtures for small houses. There is no reason to not have a bathroom with shower or even a tub and a laundry area in a small house but the appliances and fixtures will be more compact and energy efficient.

Amazing and good for her. I couldn't downsize that much but it is something to inspire me to try.
Maybe there could be a movement to have affordable houses that could be paid off entirely in 5 to 15 years. (We did it in 6 years with interest rates at 15%+ in the 1990s and me off work for a year on maternity leave).
But I could not live long term without running water. We did it for weeks post-natural disaster (and sporadically for a year afterwards when there was a big shake) and it was a gigantic pain. Also, having lived in a place where there was no proper bathroom (toilet situated outside in an alley, which was scary, handbasin inside) I really do not want to live without a shower or bath.
