First off, having left Boulder, Colorado a mere two days before the flooding and devastation began, its been sad to hear of how bad things have been out there and I hope all are well and safe in the wake of all the mayhem that region has been dealing with. Just the other weekend I […]
From this angle my little cabin in the woods DOES somewhat resemble a mushroom, with its top heavy, large-overhang roof n’ all …and you thought this post had something to do with drugs!? tisk, tisk.” – Deek
I just love this simple shot I took of the interior of my tiny, tiny, tiny house on wheels- well, more like a camper or cabin for now- “The Cub”. It will have another bed/bench/storage combo set-up down below soon, a small bathroom/toilet area on the tongue of the trailer, and a few other add-ons, […]
