Found this AWESOME resource today!

Love all their info and small home plans available!

Their first small home they built is spectacular!  VERY INSPIRING!!

But .... here's the big score I found on their page!!

And here's where to order one of these babies!!

What a GREAT space saving idea!

Gotta save this little cutie for future reference :-)

Planning the next trip....

Always dreaming about it actually.... just doing the usual, checking airfare, organizing housing, considering transportation, wondering about dog sitters.... the usual. This year my son will travel to HI and stay with me. His schooling is now completely distance based and choice driven, so I'm thinking this will be a great opportunity for him too!

I'm so happy!!!

It's weird how sometimes you just sit back and realize... you're happy. :-) And it's because YOU are happy with YOURSELF, it has nothing to do with anyone else. THE BEST FEELING EVER!

Avocado house

keep going back to these pics for inspiration

I like the front forward lanai on these pics


Found some used tempered glass windows from old sliding doors

Gonna def do some type of window wall to make the tiny space feel bigger and to look out into the jungle :-)  Here's some ideas

some nice touches to this 12 x 12...

Love the little lanai...

Thinking about water catchment for off grid

A lot to consider... here's a site I want to save, lots of options

Was just quoted $850 bucks for a 500 gallon poly squat tank here in Hawaii... yikes.... I've GOT to do better... Craigslist, here I come!

a great site

Some great ideas through this site... I def want to get further away from disposable one use items. It's pretty encouraging to see all of the recycling options here in Hawaii, and also many, many people carry reusable shopping bags, make is easy, easy.
