Last week Gabriella Morrison introduced you to their new hOMe. A tiny house on wheels. Gabriella sent me the note below and I wanted to give you this update.

Thank you so much for all of your interest and positive comments about hOMe! The response has been so amazing that we have created a walk through video tour by request. In it we show all the details and nooks/crannies that make up hOMe.

Take a Tiny House Tour

I’d write something about this, but I’ve spent too many hours learning everything I needed to know to edit the audio and make a video. I hope you enjoy it. I find this to be a super fascinating project. We talk about Marcus’ inspiration, original design, construction process, and costs.

SmallerHouseLargerLife.com is under construction. If you’d like to contact Marcus Barksdale, reach him at smallerhouselargerlife@gmail.com.

This is my first audio and video editing project, ever. Please excuse all its imperfections. I blog about this and other things that interest me right here and as often as possible.

Sausalito Floating Homes

If you love houseboats or floating homes, you may want to make a walking tour of the famous Sausalito Floating Homes part of your next trip to the San Francisco Bay area. I thought I would profile these particular floating homes because the community is maintained by homeowners and individuals rather than city officials. This makes this waterside neighborhood unique in that the designs of these homes, that are docked in Richardson Bay, are up to the owners.

The famous Sausalito floating homes community has a history that stretches over a century. During the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s improvised floating homes made from scrap wood, old tugboats, elegant ships and even old Pullman cars were built by professional artists, and since the dock areas were so small, most of the floating homes stayed small. Some of these homes are now offered as vacation rentals and there are usually a few for sale. Some of the homes have names including the Taj Mahal, the Train Wreck and the Pirate. Continue Reading »

Tour of the Epu

by Christina Nellemann on August 24th, 2009. 3 Comments

On my last trip to Sebastopol, California. I was able to visit Jay Shafer’s Epu. He has moved it to a new location within town, but still offers open house tours on the first Saturday of each month from 2-4 p.m. My husband, Harry Thomas, a semi-professional photographer took a few photos that I thought were a interesting and different view of Jay’s sweet, little house. The sleeping loft is a great place to hide.
