Keeping this just..."because"

The Power of Observation - Broadening your field of vision from ReD Associates on Vimeo.

ReD  associate's job is to observe people and how they interact with the things around them.
I spend so much time thinking about where an object goes and what it's function is in my life.

How do we make decisions on the things we surround ourself?
Is it based on memories,value,function,or just because?

The final thought in this video:

"It's in the tension between how people want to see themselves, and the observable reality of their lives, where there is a truth worth taking seriously and betting on."

Do American's have too many clothes?

I came across this listing of a parent selling their child's clothes on a facebook garage sale site.
She is selling 15 pairs of 4T jammies. That's a new pair every day for over two weeks.

The following documentary shows where all our clothes go to if they are not sold through the thrift stores. So wasteful.

I want to swing from the chandelier

I have spent many years sorting my possessions and searching for a small shelter.

"I'm so happy to have it"

Sometimes living in a small place does not reflect liberation.
In this case it is associated with homelessness.

This video takes a few seconds to load.

340 sq ft home in China

Gary Chang does a nice job showing his 340 square foot living space in Hong Kong.  He is constantly rolling walls back and forth to reveal rooms. "When I don't need the kitchen, it disappears." 

These numbered mugs are fun.

The washer and dryer are an arms width from the drawers that the clothes are stored in.

Even though one wall contains 3000 CDs, he insists the one big problem is that he has too much storage. 

I am inspired by his spa shelf.

Chang splurged on the shower because it is a space he uses a lot. 

His work table rolls out to sit 6 people for dinner and he has had up to ten people in his apartment. "Standing capacity is trendy".

His final words are that if one lives in the city, they should be out enjoying the benefits of a city .

Resource furniture

Many visitors to this site are looking for how to turn a sofa into a bed.  
Unfortunately, the popular couch bed that Resource furniture created has now been discontinued.

The good news is that they have a variety of other solutions.
With one finger, you can pull down one or two beds from a 12 inch storage space against the wall.
pull out beds from wall from resource furniture
two beds pull out of a 12 inch storage space from resource furniture.

The following video shows creative space solutions from Resource furniture  for small homes, apartments or any small space.

200 sq ft small home in Oregon built by hand

Brian Schulz blends his talent of building kayaks with his architecture skills, to create this small 200 sq ft home. " My challenge is to make a  small space feel big," he says.

Brian milled trees he found on his land to create  this organic wood siding.

The central living space is low to the ground for a more open feel providing multiple uses for eating and additional sleeping.
The table is sawed from the bottom of a tree, lightly sanded and oiled.
Brian describes the little window as odd and not making any sense, yet it highlight the corner.

He used an entire log for the staircase support.

A kayak frame is hung from the ceiling.
"I love living with things that tell stories" says Brain.

Outside the house is a planter that has the pipe from the kitchen water drain.

Other than not having a bathroom it is a wonderful and original.

Brian's final thoughts in the video, "spending time in a small space infects you, and once you go back to the standard 2000 sq foot home,  it won't feel right."
