Imagine replacing your large house with a smaller one? Saving space and conseving energy is a good thing.

The standard lot size for a home in Dallas, TX is .24 acres. One forth of one single acre of land, with houses all in a row, those ticky tacky homes! Track houses is what they call them. Imagine if you will, for just a moment, if your current house were to be removed and replaced with a new house half or a third the volume of your current home? Well, for one thing, there would be less to clean up and heating and cooling costs would be less than they are at the current moment right?

I gave it a thought and did a little research and decided to look for a video on small homes in America just for fun.

Musician in Los Angeles creates small homes for the homeless but they take them all away!

The ad that came with that video was good so I added a link to it for you to take a look at.

Sleep has never been so soft.

Better off keeping housing for the homeless!

Yes that is true. Hope your Easter is a good one. I know it's a week away but have a good one, in advance.

The new move to small houses makes sense. At the same time it reminds me of the old Mother Earth News magazine. In one article, they pointed to the value of living in a tent in the Ozarks.

Tents are similar to Indian teepees. Imagine also living in a tree house? I wonder if anyone famous in history ever lived like that, or even a tent perhaps? I know there was a very small log cabin in Downtown Dallas, TX and it was occupied by an early settler here a long time ago. Here is a link to an article about that log cabin in Dallas. http://www.watermelon-kid.com/history/dallas/landmarks/landmarks-cabin.htm
