01) 40ft Shipping Containers Transformed Into Amazing Off-Grid Family Home


“This amazing small home has been built using two 40ft high cube shipping containers, slightly of-set from one another to create a stunning, off-the-grid family home.

Feeling inspired to downsize after watching tiny home and small house design videos online, this couple decided to take the plunge into designing and building a shipping container home for their family to reduce their expenses and be able to dedicate more time to the things that really matter.

01) THE NEIGHBORS LAUGHED AT WHAT HE BUILT, BUT THEN REGRETTED NOT DOING THE SAME THEMSELVES


“There are certain people that stand out among the crowd because they don’t act like everyone else. Surely, even among your friends and acquaintances there is an eccentric person, who acts and behave in a different way, right? If so, then you can them this video right now! As a rule, big groups don’t like these people and often laugh at them. But experience has proven that weird people are ultimately right, and others, yielding to the herd instinct, simply rejected them. In today’s video, we will tell you how being different from others is sometimes very useful”

01) One man’s trash is another man’s condo.

“After collecting more than a million plastic bottles, Robert Bezeau made an unconventional decision — to build an entire village out of plastic bottles. One study has found that there could be more plastic than fish in the sea by 2050, so essentially anything else is preferable, no matter how out of the ordinary. For this one we traveled to the island of Bocas Del Toro in Panama to meet the young couple about to move into their first plastic bottle home.”

4-GoSun Go Ultra-Portable Solar Oven https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/707808908/gosun-go-boil-water-cook-meals-go-anywhere

Be aware…most of this is Kickstarter stuff…There may not be a lot of people and organizations to vouch for the integrity of these products, or the people behind them…I don’t know.

Usually…I avoid sharing things here, which are obvious commercials for a product, produced by the manufacturer to display the product in the most positive light possible…Because there’s always a danger of bias, and unrealistic expectations.

Thing is…I love what I’m seeing here…especially with the solar grill and oven.

01) 7 Things You Might Not Know About Tiny House Community Life

“A few years ago, almost no one had even heard of a tiny house. But now? Across the nation, more than a dozen cities are become officially tiny-home friendly and 50-plus communities of tiny homes have cropped up—everything from intimate backyard co-ops and tiny house/RV parks to upcoming full-on urban developments.

My main squeeze, Christian and I have had the pleasure of becoming temporary residents of more than a dozen of tiny home communites, of all kinds. If there’s one thing we have learned, downsizing into a tiny structure is just the beginning. Living tiny, especially in a community setting, is a total rethink of daily life and what it means to be a neighbor.

Everyone gets fed
Chemistry is everything
Life happens outdoors
A tiny house is a sanctuary, not an attraction
There’s always room for pets
Your neighbors have your back
Neighbors become family”

Nice article.

01) Why Aquaponics is an Amazingly Sustainable Way to Put Food on Your Table

“With the growing interest in organic food, many people have turned away from the exorbitant prices in their local grocery store and started planting their own gardens. Unfortunately, they figure out really quickly that gardening requires a lot more than digging a hole in the ground and throwing a few seeds in after. Aside from having to use fertilizers, there are a whole host of pests, weeds, and diseases just waiting to feast on your nascent veggies.

But what if there was a way to grow all of those delicious vegetables without having to worry about the meticulous upkeep that still may not prevent your garden from being ruined? Even better, what if this method of farming also provided you with fresh fish and cut the costs of gardening by up to 90 percent? In this article, we are going to show you 7 reasons we think aquaponics is an amazing, sustainable way to put food on your table.”

I do wish they had more description of the ecosystem, itself…But, it’s an interesting article.
