the fog

Woke up in a fog this morning......a thick, dense fog outside thanks to 96% humidity. Still pea soupy at 9:30AM when I headed to the GrubShack. It was just starting to finally clear over the east side of the HWY by 11 so I headed home. Took another hour before it burned off over TFL. Easy day here just finishing off the last bow tie on the containers - took yet another break for lunch before welding it into place. Blasted Cuban music all day thanks to JD's Christmas present of CD's.....really good music to work to.

My zippy builder friend Ben is back in town to work on his place so I headed over for a visit just before sunset. In only a day and a half he installed a wood stove, 4 windows, a kitchen counter, a sleeping loft and is just about ready for the stairway to heaven. For anyone living in the Fredricksburg area - this is the guy to hire. 46,73,31, .04"
final note: my story was in the top ten for 2009 here... http://www.tinyhousedesign.com/

Thanks for the good Grub Shack. The bow ties a wonderful, lot of hard work especially by your self.
Zippy Ben's place is looking good too.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!

John, your neighbors house is really cool. Down here in the Texas Gulf Coast (Corpus Christi) there are lots of stilt houses built near the salt water in case of a tidal surge due to hurricanes. Flooding is not a concern with a stilt house, however the house blowing apart in hurricane force winds is.

The bowties really make your place a class act. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I like the covered, shaded storage and parking area under Zippy's house.

Your friend's house looks great.

Congratulations on the Tiny House Top Ten placement. I really enjoyed that link. I spent about an hour in there, looking at all the different small houses. Ok Hwa was fascinated, also. I still think a small earth home would be ideal, and will probably try to build one on the land that I hope to buy out there.

Good fortune, and happiness to you in the new year!
