Graham’s 350-square-foot Bachelor Pad

Todays video is about Graham Hill who has started and sold successful businesses (including TreeHugger.com), graced the cover of Inc Magazine and the centerfold of Vanity Fair so when he talks about living a simple life it might be tough to believe.

How’s a 350-square-foot bachelor pad with not much more than a bed and a desk for simple? And this is spacious compared to where he spent most of the year: onboard the 60-foot Plastiki (a boat made from recycled plastic bottles).

In this video, Suchin Pak visits her friend Graham in his new digs in New York City’s SoHo to talk about his idea of LifeEdited: how editing our lives (homes, cars, toys, even friends) is to the 21st century what supersizing was to the 20th.

All white bikes are memorials for dead bicyclists; http://www.ghostbikes.org/ But I loved the folder in the shower.

    I looked at your link. It states “A bicycle is painted all white and locked to a street sign near the crash site…”

    Are you insinuating that Mr. Hill stole one of these bicycles from a street sign and put it in his apartment? That’s quite an accusation, sir!

    Not ‘all’ white bikes, only ‘all’ on that site.
    No one, or group, can define what colors are or are not ‘allowed’.

      Perhaps ‘all white’ is meant to mean ‘completely white’, not ‘every white’. Which still leaves the possibilities that someone would have a completely white bike for other purposes, or that particular bike may actually be intended for use as a ghost bike at some point.

        Im sure that particular ‘all’ did, but his second sentence indicated a judgement on it also. The bike is not actually all white, but it would make no difference if it was… a ‘cr

          (oops) a ‘created’ tribute does not eliminate all other uses of an item.

    The place has nice bones. The window changed to french doors on the fire escape will look great. Good luck on the changes.

No way - November 11, 2010 Reply

There’s no way this is 350 sq ft. That’s like twice as big as my studio, and I have 350 sq ft.

I don’t want to assume too much based on one short video, but…It looks like Hill has edited out eating. One major gripe I have with many tiny houses is that the kitchens and storage areas are so small that it seems it would be difficult to store natural foods in bulk and prepare healthy, inexpensive meals.

When the revolution comes growing and preparing our own healthy meals will be a cornerstone.

HCG drops - July 27, 2011 Reply

My own comprehension is that the hcg Drops are offered in a variety of kinds including homepathic variations. Some of these drops aren’t of human origin and are far less efficient than the actual human hCG. These liquid drops are available all round the web and I notice that many folks have got less good results compared to actual thing. BUYER BEWARE – a few originated from overseas and there is no FDA quality control which can be dangerous. Stick to an authorized medical clinic that offers the real thing. You may pay more, but you will rest at night (and get up in the AM).
