Life should come with a lollipop.

We live in a generation where everybody want's to have a reason to look down on you, where "bigger and better" is the standard, and where if you live in a house without running water, your structure may be deemed "substandard" or "uninhabitable" by the city.

The average person would think a bucket with water in it isn't "livable" when several people have proven just the opposite. I just wish more people had open minds, the world would be a much happier place.

I am IN LOVE with this movement, but not everyone is as "into it" as I am. Personally I wouldn't care if you lived in a tent, bathed in the river and did your business in a hole in the ground as long as you were happy and didn't pose a health risk to the community. Unfortunately not everyone thinks that way and because this movement is just now catching on I want to provide people with the option to live green, to live off grid, and to live comfortably and happily in a home designed with the environment in mind.

I could build this house much cheaper and easier if I was to use non-renewable wood [for every tree cut down to make the wood used in this Tiny house, two new trees will be planted.]

I would LOVE to have all houses built using all reclaimed materials [Which is what I did with Project Upcycle when I built homes for the less fortunate.] but TGL is aimed to be built by the average person on an average budget, with an average amount of time available.

When I do Project Upcycle it takes months to years to gather the correct resources and materials needed to build a complete house for a single family. [Which is why I have only built one so far]

With TGL, "anybody can do it" With all the materials gathered, a person could have their Tiny house built in 30 days. Once I save enough money to gather the materials I am going to do just that. 30 days from parts to home. Grid and off grid capable, eco friendly, and average joe and joanna approved.

I am in the process of getting detailed plans and instructions made for these appliances and systems so that I can sell them on here to raise money for the house. Don't worry, I am only going to sell them for 99 cents each, because I know alot of people are doing this to save money, but I need to raise money to buy my own materials as well as doing research and development on new and better appliances and systems. In return I will be giving intricate, detailed, CAD assisted plans for everything from the house itself to the different off grid, eco friendly appliances I design.

$500 for plans to a house that might as well be a glorified shed on wheels seems a bit outlandish to me. I would never buy these plans purely because of their price. However if I had the option to pick and choose what I wanted plans on and it was affordable, I would most certainly get a set.

I know alot of people want free plans. However I pour ungodly amounts of time and money into these posts and the research and development that goes into each of the systems I design. The very least you can do is throw a few bucks my way so it doesn't hit my wallet too bad. In reality, I would be A-OK living in an insulated box with a fire pit in the center [read: yurt] but I want to offer options for the average person to live green and live free. A yurt doesn't work for everybody, but a fully functional, yet eco friendly house that can be taken anywhere with nothing more than a heavy duty truck, does. If only a TINY bit more :) .

Life should come with a lollipop. It would be a happier place for everyone.

The Number 12

I LOVE to laugh, I'm pretty sure it's my favorite thing to do....EVER. If I could have a choice to have 100 billion dollars but not be able to laugh, I wouldn't take it. Why? Because without laughter what's the point in life? NOT A DAMN THING THATS WHAT! So why the number 12?


Contrary to popular belief, it DOESNT take 17 muscles to smile and 42 to frown. There isn't even 42 muscles in your face [take that old sayings!]  According to an actual doctor, It takes 12 muscles to smile, and 11 to frown, Laughing on the other hand takes many many more, but nobody knows exactly how many, so I use the number 12.


WHAT IS THE POINT OF THIS MADNESS????
The point is, that I love to laugh, and I love making other people laugh.


Laughter is good for you, and recently many doctors have been prescribing laughter therapy. About.com says:
  • Laughter reduces the level of stress hormones like cortisol,epinephrine (adrenaline), dopamine and growth hormone. It also increases the level of health-enhancing hormones like endorphins, and neurotransmitters. Laughter increases the number of antibody-producing cells and enhances the effectiveness of T cells. All this means a stronger immune system, as well as fewer physical effects of stress.
