Young Aldo Lavaggi Shares His Thoughts On Living In A Tiny House On Wheels...

Aldo Lavaggi is a young man on a mission.
To simplify his life.
It's not that he's had a lot of life experience on which to base his ideas but we all have to start somewhere and where better than with small.
A tiny house says Aldo, is not some silver bullet, like all of a sudden your life gets great…
It makes some things easier, and it makes some things harder, and the two are really intertwined. There's more according to Aldo here but it appears the young man is off to a great start.
If you can dream it, you can do it...

The Strange And Poignant Tale Of The Red Chairs Abandoned In A Polish Forest In 1939...

There's a beautiful and poignant story doing the rounds about these little red chairs being set out for a wedding in a Polish forest way back in 1939. The German invasion troops caused the wedding to be abruptly abandoned and the chairs were found many years later with trees growing through them. Each and every year the chairs are lovingly repainted. So the story goes.
In reality, they are images in the wonderful portfolio of conceptual artist, sculptor and photographer Patrick Demazeau whose work often includes the juxtaposition of furniture and nature. The trees spend their lives standing and are perhaps offering seats to the walkers, wanderers and dreamers who might pass.
But one should never let the facts get in the way
of a good story...

Chloe Barcelou and Brandon Batchelder decided to build themselves a house on wheels with a difference, and where better they thought, to obtain some extraordinary ideas and materials than from some movie sets they'd worked on.
They spent a couple of months designing their home, being greatly influenced by old ships, railroad cars, stage coaches and gypsy caravans and then another nine months or so building their creative theatrical masterpiece.
All the world's their stage...
