What people are saying...



Jay Shafer

"Andrew's the bomb when it comes to building a tiny house and explaining the process clearly. I can't recommend his video highly enough. It's the most beautifully done and thoroughly informative footage. Andrew's a far better builder than most anyone I know, including me." - Jay Shafer (FourLightsHouses.com)


Ryan Mitchell

"The hOMe plans are very high quality, contain a lot of detail, and are geared toward the beginner builder. The materials list is incredibly detailed and the framing plans feature more detail than standard. Also, Andrew’s detailed video explaining how to read house plans is not to be missed." - Ryan Mitchell (TheTinyLife.com)

dolphin jumping out of water


Two nights ago I dreamed that I saw a dolphin in the water, northeast from Joe and Julie’s beach, just a little ways out.  In the dream, I first saw a lone dolphin moving in a slow but steady circle.  After a few rotations, it was joined by another dolphin and then another until a […]

Kill Your TV (And Your Kids’ Video Games Too)

I could kick myself.  I don’t know why on earth we thought it would be a good idea to get Terra the Nintendo DS game system she wanted while we were in San Diego.  Perhaps it was momentary amnesia…happy Baja-brain.  Since we bought it five days ago we’ve been regretting the purchase. It’s pretty amazing […]

We hit our first […]
