Derek Diedricksen has a new episode out of Tiny Yellow House. This time it features one of his latest micro house creations called The Boxy Lady. In addition to providing a place to sleep it can also double as a curbside vending booth.
If you happen to be near Scituate, MA this coming Thursday (August 26, 2010) at 7:00 p.m., you should stop by The Front Street Book Shop. Derek will be there with The Boxy Lady which is now sporting some yet to be seen features. He’ll also be doing a demo on redneck window construction, as well as talking about his book and designs.
Just found a very interesting doc about mobile home polotics (seriously): http://www.cj-network.org/cjsouthwood/taking_out_southwoods_trash.doc
Thanks. This is great.
I know some people ‘got’ what I was trying to do/say while out on that limb… but this doc nicely explains the prejudice all mobile dwelling owners will have to fight at some point. The more ammo/info we can put out there about overcoming prejudice the more folks will be able to make their dream home on wheels a reality… at least I like to think to.
I’ll do a more careful read over the weekend.
I finally had time to read that article through yesterday. Wow, a deliberately created prejudice against people who wanted to keep their family sheltered while they go to where the work was rumored to be, what a concept. One created by our ‘public servants’. That certainly explains a lot. And this long an entrenched prejudice, helped along by officialdom, will be especially difficult to to bring down. Could be fun, but not everybody is going to be willing to gird up and read that thing all the way through, much too dry and academic. We need the assistance of a writer people are actually willing to buy the work of to boil it down to the essentials and in an entertaining manner.
