Using my blog to try and make the world a better place. If I can help someone forget their troubles for a few minutes a day, it's all worth it.

Far out:

The above house was a plan from a 1972 issue of Family Circle. You can find the plan here. I first knew of this house from a book: Tiny Tiny Houses by Lester Walker. It wouldn't pass code today, I'm afraid, but I think it's cool to look at.

Very cool to look at. Something tells me by the time I have saved enough for a house, it will be even tinier (spelling?) than this. Cool post. Have a great weekend.

Back again. My uncle was an architect in late 60's early 70's and he built himself and his wife a perfect square house with a perfect square cut out of the center. Imagine a square doughnut. He planted a tree in the center of the "square doughnut" and it is still there today. They have added a support system underground to stabalize the tree. Also very cool.

That's neat. Kind of like the school I attended - a square building with a 'courtyard' in the center.
