Been a while, so what’s been happening. Six months update.

Now is the time for all good men to come to the aide of their country…

I remember this when learning to use a typewriter in the 60’s.
I spent a long time retyping my High School senior year short story.
It told of a flight to a distant planet that was contaminated by the explorers that causes their demise.
In 1970’s I bought a condo for $32,000 in Framingham.

My first home…

Zestimate®: $177,164 

Now in 2017 my own son and new spouse are looking at nearby affordable homes.
I built my current home in 1985 on land

DATE EVENT PRICE $/SQFT SOURCE
01/01/85 Sold $45,000 $18 Public Record

as did my father in the 1940’s in Westbrook, CT

So now in 2017 I ask if this tradition can continue ?
I found this February 03, 2016 inspiring link…
This House Costs Just $20,000—But It’s Nicer Than Yours

This House Costs Just $20,000—But It’s Nicer Than Yours

I did some quick research from another perspective to see if I were to have it built today how much would it cost.

Many people searching for their dream home are coming to the conclusion that to have exactly what they need and want, they may have to build it themselves.

Well, what about a “TINY HOUSE” ?

three tiny houses

While the structures often measure less than 300 square feet, the tiny house movement isn’t necessarily about sacrifice.

I plan to start my own project to demonstrate construction techniques this July 2017.

I may upload progress to here or my other spaces so watch this space.
This design is a micro version of my larger home I built in 1980’s for the family to grow up and into.

Maybe we come to the aide of our country and expand it to the planet with a little left behind for our children and their progeny.

You can chose your own definition from the WIKI link above of what is taken away or given back !

I am getting excited to start working on a home and community based project.
The idea is both energy and media based but needs time to formalize the real plan.
Drop me a note if you are local to Groton, MA USA and interested in learning more.
