I've had a few conversations with people recently who are new to checking out my project. As usually happens, they were a bit puzzled about why I am putting so much energy into a house that is so tiny, on a trailer, just the first of TWO intended houses, so much more work than using a yurt or clunker mobile home for a few years, etc. If you're a new visitor/follower here, have similar questions, and don't want to read this blog from the beginning, I recommend two posts:
Long Time Comin'
Why don't you just...?
Those posts attempt to explain the dreams, desires, and conditions that have led to the decisions I've made. Enjoy!
