MY WIFE THINKS IM JOKING ABOUT HAVING OUR FAMILY, WE HAVE 2 KIDS AGED 4 AND 9MONS, LIVE IN SOMETHING SIMILAR TO THESE TINY HOMES. WE CURRENTLY LIVE IN A 1 BEDROOM APPARTMENT AND THE ONLY REASON IT FEELS SMALL RIGHT NOW IS BECAUSE WE HAVE A LOT OF CRAP THAT JUST SITS THAT WE DONT USE. WHEN WE FIRST MOVED INTO OUR APPARTMENT, IT FELT HUGE BECAUSE WE DIDNT HAVE ANYTHING IN IT EXCEPT THE ESSENTIALS. SO WE'RE IN THE PROCESS OF SAVING UP TO BUY OR BUILD A HOME BUT IN THE MEAN TIME, WHAT WE REALLY NEED IS A GOOD CLEANSING OF ALL THE STUFF WE HAVE THAT WE DONT USE AND LO AND BEHOLD OUR SPACE WILL FEEL BIG AGAIN.

Where would you put shoes and dogs and sore muscles (bathtub)? Fortunately libraries of literature, music and film now fit into the corner of a small drawer.

I agree with the comment about the sharecroppers home.

I am a historian, it helps me to know who I am and where I am situated. For example I live in the historic land of the Anisinaabe (Ojibway) and in the heart of the Métis nation. Where my home located was the bald prairie until 1900ish, then it became Icelandic, German, then Aboriginal, Vietnamese, African, and my actual building is only 2006, infill housing as social rebuilding surrounded by 2story 1903 homes:)

I am Canadian and I did a lot of research last week after I heard Glory for the first time at the Academy Awards. I followed links forever and got background to terms I only heard of but didn't really understand- Jim Crow, sharecroppers.

K, I can't spell the word, it keeps coming up as ethically:) But as it looks- I think it's beautiful. An excellent use of what is there.

I think if this was my place, I'd research who the sharecropper was, the age of the materials, home; history of share cropping in Texas; I think that would supremely honour the material, the families, the persons.

Good job on the build. I inspire and challenge the homeowners to find out a bit more and make a"milk painting" board for the house:)

Good job:)

carolbrandywine, good way to nail "irony" where the Alanis Morrissettes of this world have failed. Irony aside, it was a rather grand house by sharecropper house standards, which I found very interesting — I don't think I've ever seen anything like it in a Walker Evans photo or around southern country roads myself.

I'd way rather see materials reused like this than have a house just collapse into a pile and go to waste.
