An eco-friendly house? really cute and simple ^_^ as many people would say "Live simply so others may simply live".

Very cute. Recycling can give a home instant charm and preserve a piece of history.

I'm going to rain (a little bit) on this parade -- run for your umbrellas, everybody! I'm fascinated with tiny houses, but if anyone is really serious about living simply, they HAVE to provide for storage for enough food, water and fuel to carry them through a certain time period without resupply. Consider what would happen in a freak weather event, or if their neighborhood were "closed down" and all residents had to "shelter in place" due to security issues, like a nut case in a standoff with police? Our area had its first recorded ice storm 15 years ago, and some areas were without power for days and days -- the first time since they were first electrified in the early 1900's. And what if a "shelter-in-place" alert went out, and you had family or friends visiting at that moment -- where on earth could THEY shelter on your property, with a home so small? These are the very unpleasant issues that any homeowner, with a home of any size, has to address at some point; please allow for them when you go for your own dream!
Okay, rainstorm is over -- dream on!
