    Thanks for the demonstration! Loved the Japanese saw demonstration. I have had one for years to prune trees. People in France look at me like I’m some kind of whack!
    Don’t know if I’ll ever be able to make a Tiny Home before I get too old, but think that your series might just be my own kickstarter.

    Good luck and keep in touch

    All the best

    The impulse to express an idea by making a work, which can be picture, a book or something is simply a gift that is also offered to others as common sharing.
    A true Artist if we reflect is a “Missionary” accomplishes a missioni. Remember the
    Lord’s “Talent Parable”?!

    My husband and I have been working on our Tiny House for one month. We are now at putting up the rafters. The only tools we own are a skil saw, DeWalt Drill and Screwdriver, hammer , level , plane and wrenches.
    :You don’t really need all those fancy tools.

    Hell I’m 74 and I’m starting a nonprofit organization to build tiny home’s for the homeless. Also not a fan of building tiny home’s on trailers but building tiny home’s on trucks, stronger frame and Axel’s hold more weight. Also you can design the perfect motor home.
