600, that Is, 600 photos of Small Cabins!

When I was working on Tiny Homes, I kept my my cards a bit close to chest. I didn't post a lot of the homes I was finding because I wanted to save them for the book. Now that the book is out, the flood gates are open,so in coming months, here we go. An example is The Modern Cabin website, run by Justin, with 600 photos of cabins. Whoa! Also, things are starting to pour in from people who have seen the book.
   Above, from Justin's website: "Cabo Polonio, a remote beach village in southeastern Uruguay, sits on a green peninsula between the Atlantic and a desert landscape of shifting sand dunes. Strewn across the grassy promontory are a single lighthouse and a few hundred whimsical dwellings. Rasta-colored flags serve as wind vanes, tinted glass bottles are embedded in walls, and exteriors are painted with pictures of suns, cow spots, rainbows and a Klimt-like rendering of a woman.…"

Headed upstairs now to commune with my newly delivered book.

Lloyd! Thanks for nothing! I was up until 3:00 am reading Tiny Houses last night! And I'm still not through it.

You've inspired me to start collecting downed wood on our mountain property. I already had plans for partially blown down pine, now just sitting there drying out, but I may even put the weathered hard wood slash to use now. I always wanted a shelter up on top - now I'm thinking very cool lean-to out of materials already up there. We have multiple spots with great views. Being NH, I still have to consider black flies and mosquitoes, but I think I can do it. Not too soon, as I'm getting ready for a 2013 hike of the AT. On the other hand, I may train on our property collecting building materials instead of driving up to the trails in the Whites.

You may know of this already Lloyd, but Haney and Ballantine's "Woodstock Handmade Houses" is in flickr photoset form now:
