Diana and Michael Lorence decided almost a decade ago to stray away from what society calls “normal” and they escaped to this peaceful off-grid mountain home. That’s right, they live without electricity, and without excess. It was a concerted choice, and not one that’s for everybody. But Diana just wants people to know that their type of lifestyle is always an option for others, should you decide it’s right for you. Just press play to watch this MUST-SEE video.
[ Diana and Michael are ] not back-to-the-land types- they’re not growing their own food, nor raising animals-, but, like Thoreau, they were looking for a place where they could get away from the noise of society and focus on their inner lives. For nearly 30 years they lived in tiny houses, often in guest homes, though their current abode is the smallest and most fitting their needs. It was designed by Michael based on their experiences living in nearly 20 tiny homes across the country before finally settling here. The Lorences are a private couple, but recently they have begun to speak out more about their lives in hopes of showing others that options such as theirs exist.
