Happy Belated Earth Day!

I am afraid I completely missed Earth Day, with all that has been going on lately. I usually like to commemorate it in some way here on the blog & have done so in years past. But this year I did not have anything prepared. My son recently sent me the following link, knowing about my interest in the small house movement. I am not sure if it is entirely appropriate as an Earth Day celebration, but I certainly enjoyed seeing the amazing way that this New York apartment made use of a very small space & thought maybe some of you would too.

GIZMODO - The Tiny Transforming Apartment That Packs Eight Rooms into 350 Square Feet from Gizmodo on Vimeo.




Before leaving Charleston I took some more photos of small spaces down there, which I will post soon too.

And since everyday, in fact, is earth day, I hope you have a happy one & are able to get out & enjoy the beauty this earth has to offer.

  2. Wow, he's SO inventive with the small space.That moveable wall blew my mind. So was the standing desk, that's such a good idea. Can you imagine paying thousands of dollars a month and living in such a tiny space, though? Madness!

  3. I missed Earth day too Sally. Not the same distractions that you've sadly been having!
    Small homes are incredibly relevant I believe in the light of Earth Day.
    IN Australia our relatively low population and wide open spaces has people thinking its of no consequence to tear down large tracks of land and dramatically impact biodiversity in order to create more and more housing opportunities. And thats for starters.
    I am also very keen for the conversation to grow louder about smaller homes and making do, reinventing... thinking differently ...all that!
    Now to see the video.

  4. Hi,Sally.
    What a great inventor he is! That is a very effective and convenient space! I am wondering if I can use such a functionally superior space efficiently because I am not young...?
    Have a nice weekend,Sally.
