This is a stunning 300-square-foot jungle tiny home on wheels with a screened-in porch/lanai that provides an additional 300 square feet of covered living space.

Minimalist Couple Living in a Small 400 ft² Apartment with Clever Storage Ideas – FULL TOUR

Tina and Rob downsized to a 400-square-foot apartment so they could afford to get into the housing market. They've been living in this space for 3 years and have become masters at downsizing, organizing, and playing Tetris with their stuff to create a comfortable, functional home that has a minimalist and spacious feel without feeling cluttered. They put a lot of thought and intention into every aspect of their home and came up with some beautiful interior design ideas as well as some clever storage and organization hacks in each space, from the kitchen and living room to the bathroom and bedroom. We've gotten so many great ideas after taking a peek inside their little condo for two! You can follow and find out more about Tina & Rob's Small Space Big Life project here: https://www.youtube.com/@smallspacebiglife https://www.instagram.com/smallspacebiglifevancouver https://www.tiktok.com/@smallspacebiglife Living in a small space isn't easy, and it requires a lot of discipline to keep the space clean and uncluttered. One of the things Tina and Rob do to prevent things from piling up is a one-in, one-out rule. So if they're bringing something new into the apartment, they have to get rid of something to make space for it. But some of the benefits of living small are undeniable, it's more affordable, it's simple, and it can reduce your environmental impact if it means you use less electricity, buy fewer things, have less space to heat and cool, etc. We hope you enjoyed this video!

How Buryats live in Russia? Life in wild forest Taiga. Village far from civilization.

How Buryats live in Russia? Life in wild forest Taiga. Village far from civilization. The Buryats, a people living in the Irkutsk region, have a rich and developed culture, the traditions of which go back to ancient times. The life of the Buryats is inextricably linked with nature and crafts. The Buryats were engaged in animal husbandry, mainly raising cattle and horses. They learned to grow Siberian potatoes, cucumbers, cabbage and many other vegetables and fruits, using the rich natural resources of the region. In addition to agriculture, a number of Buryats adhered to crafts. In the highlands of the Irkutsk region, the Buryats still produce hides, meat and other products, which are used both for personal needs and for sale. These types of industries are an important part of the Buryat culture and are passed on from generation to generation. We are interested in learning how our ancestors lived, to study their traditions and to master ancient crafts and meals. We travel to different regions of Russia and show you how people live in Russian remote villages. Real Village, not embellished real life as it is. We will show you the usual village life and cuisine of different nations. We are the ULENGOVS. Welcome to our channel!

These old men who live their lives on top of the mountain have experienced a lot and have become an iconic image of village life. They are an example of hard life in the mountains and show how people live in harsh conditions. One of the features of the life of an old couple in a mountain village is traditional food and village cooking. They are prepared only from natural products collected around their village. This country food is full of flavor and organic, making it super delicious. The rural inhabitants of the mountain village have been accustomed for many years to a harsh lifestyle that they have chosen themselves. In village life films we show how their daily life goes and how they try to maintain their traditional way of life. Life in the Russian and Ukrainian mountains has its own characteristics. Mountains surround the village on all sides, isolating it from the outside world. People living in such remote villages are accustomed to a hard life. One of the village women living in the mountains is herself alone in the desert. She talks about how she lives in a mountain valley in an ancient village and what difficulties she overcomes every day. Here is a story about how people live in Ukraine, Russia and other remote wild places of the world. Daily life in the mountains requires a special lifestyle. People living in such remote villages are accustomed to a primitive life; they live far from civilization. Their village lifestyle is full of its own unique atmosphere. Documentaries about village life allow you to learn more about the daily life of their inhabitants. They show how people live in the mountains and how they cook food over a fire. Traditional village life is relaxing and creates an atmosphere of peace. One of the couples living in the mountains are elderly people who live on their own. They share their stories and talk about details of their lives. They chose this life to enjoy nature and live away from noisy civilization. Village life in Afghanistan also has its own characteristics. Historical and cultural villages in Russia also show the mountain, Tundra, Taiga lifestyle. These places immerse you in the daily life of the village people and allow you to experience natural farming and traditional cooking.
