Quote:Canadian couple trading in family home for tiny house on wheels


A Canadian couple are trading in their 2,200-square-foot home for a makeshift 300-square-foot dwelling that rests on wheels.


The Canadian couple plan to take their home on the road, driving with their son through the U.S. for a year.

"Honestly I am not a homemaker," Shaw told the CBC. "It stresses me out that I have all that dusting and everything to look after."

Their new traveling home (not to be confused with a mobile home) is made of wood and is being built on the top of a flatbed truck. And the living space itself will be connected to a utility trailer that houses a kitchen and sleeping area.

"There's going to be a sleeping loft above the cab and then two sleeping bunks, which will also have the seat belts in it, and it's going to have a bathroom and then the TV and video games and all that stuff for the kids," Shaw said...http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/sideshow/can...36716.html


Better have an add on beer wagon.

Yeah I could live like that. We have a friend who build a little cottage on a trailer but I think he needs a tractor to pull it. chuckle.gif

Watched a few minutes of TV over at a friend's place the other day.

200 channels - nothing worth watching.

Idols, millionaires, dancers, stars - the exact same everywhere.
Even the history docus follow international "format".
One of the true faces of "multiculture".

Noticed once again, how 5 TV-free years freed my brain from
near enough etched-in jingles jongles plinketyplonk bullshit.
Mantras for the zombiefied channel surfers.

Yeah it's quite amazing how there's absolutely NOTHING I miss from the dumb box. And even better I don't need to talk about the latest episode of Dancing with Talented Stars with anybody. "I don't watch TV" seems to exclude me pretty efficiently from such. :whew:

Got to run! wave.gif
