this is very cool. i love those tumbleweed designs. they're adorable. i do love that 'glass house' structure particularly. it's really beautiful.
sometimes, i dream about getting a plot of land and putting one of these tiny houses on it. i talked to my husband about it a couple of times, and he's not really into having something so small.
but the reason is really sad. his mother grew up very ashamed of her 1,100 square foot home, always feeling inadequate because it was so small. she got it as a gift from her father (she was born in that house), and it's a pretty little home. so, he inherited that shame about having a small house.
when i look at these houses, i see possibility. i love the idea of simplicity and i'm getting closer and closer to living more simply. we're decluttering more and more, and i am hoping that we can move toward even more simplicity (according to our firends, we live 'too simply!'). we've agreed to utilize the library rather than buying books, for example, and we're doing a lot of recycling--buying used instead of new as much as we can.
i don't think i can convince him to move away from the shame of a small space. i love that glass house particularly, and we've long talked about living 'in the japanese' style--which means having small, multi-purpose, clean spaces and no clutter!
i feel like our lives are the antithesis of that! ah well. these types of things help me dream!
