Writing house

I am fascinated and beguiled by really little houses. I guess I always wanted one stemming back from the backyard playhouses some of my friends had. Well, I happened to visit Michael Pollan's website because I am currently interested in his book about American food habits, and lo and behold, I discovered that he has built the little house of my dreams and purposed it as I would have. I am eighty shades of green.

That's fantastic! I wonder if I could make our storage shed into a cozy space like that? It would be fab to have my office away from (but not so far away as to obsolete houseshoes...) the whole house. Hmmmm...

Extraordinary concept isnt it in the era of McMansions, Hummers and Drive in Movie size flat screen tv-s.

A movement toward mimimalism would be beautiful.

Came upon your blog page doing a search for this. Not many people thinking about this kind of thing. Ahead of your time...

Check this link out.

Just think of what the hills and farmlands of Northern and Central NJ would look with such houses as opposed to many of the current monstrosities.

At some point, hands might be forced. For now, its a nice thought.

I have to ramble on.

Wouldnt it be great, even if you had $100mm to have 10 of these little houses in 10 great locations rather than 1 giant fuel burner.

Wow, hey, thanks for tripping over me and taking the time to comment!
Sadly I couldn't open your link; what was it?

I am very amused at the thought of tiny houses dotting the landscape around here. There is a house near where I live that I pass on my way home from work that has 4 bays for cars in its garage and a facade that rivals that of Le Petit Trianon. In yucky modern brick, of course. It makes me want to weep.

Glad to know there are kindred spirits out there!
