I feel more graceful in a small space. I have to be more aware and more conscientious. And then you make decisions, you’re sort of forced to make decisions that calm your daily life. Like, I have to have to keep this tidy because there’s no room for mess, right? The trailer is.
Eight feet three inches wide by sixteen feet, but i think the interior is about seven feet nine inches, and about 15andahalf feet long. Interviewer: And do you know the square footage? I figured it at about 114, roughly. Everything besides the studs, the shingles and the roof are reused. The interior wall is.
Not reused but it’s sustainably harvested. This particular wood would have been essentially composted or burned. But they turned it into a I think it’s a travesty because it’s so gorgeous. It’s tar beetle pinewood.
From Montana. So the beetles invade the wood and the wood actually emits this toxin to rid the beetles, which changes the color of the wood. So it’s not particularly attractive because it’s irregular.

And so I went to the rebuilding center later that day and literally walked through the door and that window was sitting right in front of me for thirty dollars.
