Creative Houses From Reclaimed Materials

This funny and insightful talk from TEDxHouston, builder Dan Phillips tours us through a dozen homes he’s built in Texas using recycled and reclaimed materials in wildly creative ways. Brilliant, low-tech design details will refresh your own creative drive.

Backyard Sufficiency

Found this great video about growing 100% of your own food and how difficult it is.  An interesting point that he talks about is how to achieve this, you cannot do it independently, you must work with a community to be successful.  I will warn you that at certain points he starts talking in a very “new age” type of vernacular, running from point to point, but I gleaned some interesting things regardless.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Just wanted to say, Happy Thanksgiving!  Hope all you have a great holiday, see you next week!

The Beekman Boys

So I have come across a video series called Beekman Boys, which shows the life or partners, one formally a drag queen,  the other is a VP from the Martha Stuart empire, They have decided to become farmers.  It is an interesting mix of polo shirts and pig farming.  I really like the dynamic of the two and it is pretty entertaining, plus a bit eye opening.  Check it out!
