What one might find beautiful another one might hate. Anyway, at the end it’s all about happiness. And if these guys decided that they want to live like this and this makes them happy why not believe them…For them everything comes to simplicity and peace. The couple used to live for 30 years in small homes and often even guest homes. At one point they decided to finally have their own place to call home. When that happened they knew exactly what they need and they brought only the essentials.
