Lighting on this one sucks- my appologies- but given the circumstance and long story behind it- I had to post it up anyway (esp. as I wanted to get word/the plugs out there for the authors, etc)….outside the actual “Tiny Yellow House” show we’re a low budget “operation” anyway- so its somewhat fitting….

Anyway, I had fun recordin’ it, and here ya go- Part 2 of “Man With The Ugly Hat- video book reviews of tiny house/small living/energy independence books”

The books we cover this time are from authors……GERALD ROWAN, JAY SHAFER, DAVID AND JEANIE STILES, SUZANNE LEWIS, DAN MULFINGER, SHELTON DAVIS, CATHY JOHNSON, and more….

It seems to me that we should be pushing for the greater use of sustainably produced timber, by zero taxation incentives. Wood sequesers atmospheric carbon for years and is harmless to the environment at the end of its long life.

sounds good to me- most of what I build utlizes recycled materials, or VT sustainably grown cedar (which I pick up when I happen to be up there anyway). The tax breaks would only sweeten the pot- but good luck (sadly) convincing the Georgia Pacific-backed politicians/lawmakers on that one….

Hey there,

LOVE your videos. Your energy and enthusiasm are fabulous. I paid cash for a plot of land back in ’99 and built a modest 480 square foot house and I did it without a mortgage for about $31K total. It took a few years (septic first, then foundation, then shell, etc. as cash allowed) but it was well worth it. Pulled most everything from salvage yards, Craigslist, cast-offs, auctions. In the end, it looks pretty respectable. “Momworthy” even.
