I’m moving to Fremont.

August 1, 2010


After I dropped Lloyd and Brent off on Saturday, I spied this little house. I had to drive around and look at it, then get out of the car and look in it. There was the concern that somebody might live there, but it seemed to have a plaque on the door, and unless that plaque said, “Go away, busybodies”, I was peeking inside.

The only thing that could make it cuter would be covering it in candy.

All was well – literally. It turns out that it’s a well water station for the city. It had all sorts of giant pipes inside, instead of quirky furniture and porridge-eating bears.

How practical.

Look at the pipes on that thing!

Once again, my Rich Inner World took over and I sat in the car, mentally designing the inside for maximum efficiency. Small bathroom? Check. Kitchen area? Check. Ladder to sleeping loft? Check. Fireplace or gas heater?

Do you think that Fremont would take an offer on the place? They don’t really need all that water.

    I think it would be more fun to move in to that actual house. Then the space-using puzzle would be even more challenging: “Do I use that giant pipe as a table or as a bed?”

    Lloyd probably would never have to clean the gutters. Does it even have gutters?

    How big a lawn could you irrigate?

    Dang, those people of Fremont sure go to extravogant lengths to cover their pipes!

    There once was a girl up in Fremont,
    Who while munching on a yummy cresant,
    Saw the perfect lil’ house,
    For her & her spouse,
    Turns out its just a giant baptismal font.

    I think that’s where Freddy Kruger lives.

    Do you wonder what the monthly electric bill for that cute little house is?

    You will love this book. It is full of tiny houses!


    That is a link at Amazon, but I bet your library could get it for you.
