Friday Tiny House Post

Taking a break from the usual chronicling of Team Bush arrogance, stupidity, cynicism, thuggery, etc., here's a Pravda-Upon-Hudson article that focuses on small, affordable, and easily constructed houses:

A wave of interest in such small dwellings — some to serve, like the Shepherds’ home, as temporary housing, others to become space-saving dwellings of a more permanent nature — has prompted designers and manufacturers to offer building plans, kits and factory-built houses to the growing number of small-thinking second-home shoppers. Seldom measuring much more than 500 square feet, the buildings offer sharp contrasts to the rambling houses that are commonplace as second homes.

Note: The Katrina Cottage gets a mention. And every one of the structures pictured in the audio slide show looks better--and is probably built more soundly--than a FEMA trailer.

Oh--and yeah, I saw the Pravda article about NOLA today, but I'm guessing everyone stopping by has probably already looked at it. Again, it speaks volumes that this country either can't or won't fix problems RIGHT HERE IN AMERICA, but instead, insists on blowing shit up overseas...

So...I guess this isn't a break from chronicling Team Bush thuggery, arrogance, and stupidity after all...
