Sites I like

Ok, I’m just linking to one today: Better Living Through Design. I don’t need to buy or own a lot of stuff, but I do really like to see things that are designed in interesting ways.

Case in point: This apartment. See? I told you I was obsessed with tiny spaces.

      Gretchen, I love you!! I saw this a while ago and could never find it again!! Everyone should watch it because it’s so clever.

      Nutshell version: Housekeeper in San Francisco (living in a shed in friend’s yard) buys land in undeveloped suburb in Hawaii to build tiny house for cheap. Higher-ups won’t let him get contractors to build a tiny house, so he gets blueprints for a big McMansion, gets contractors, but has them start building the detached garage. They do, then he stops construction and lives in his awesome garage!!

      I LOVE that little Hawaiian house! I would totally retire to it…or just live there if I could find a job. We should start a little community of little houses….what do you think?
