The tiny house is under construction!

Here’s the nearly completed design for my first tiny house build. I came up with most of it, with help from my partner, Erica, who is also building a tiny house. My friend, architect John Fitzpatrick, set it all up in CAD, including the framing plan. Great to have real plans to work from. I bought the 26′ trailer from Iron Eagle Trailers in Gresham, Oregon.

This is getting close to finished; just details left.

According to researchers at Warwick Business School in Coventry, UK, beautiful architecture has a positive impact on human health. PhD student Chanuki Seresinhe, associate professor of Behavioural Science and Finance Tobias Preis, and associate professor of Behavioural Science Suzy Moat published their findings in a paper titled Quantifying the Impact of Scenic Environments on Health. Their methodology involved showing study subjects photos from the web site “Scenic or Not,” a crowdsourced resource of more than 217,000 geotagged photos from across Great Britain. Participants were asked to rate each photo on a scale from 1 to 10, with 10 indicating “very scenic,” and 1 indicating “not scenic.”

Beautiful buildings, such as St. Paul’s Cathedral, are good for human health.
