Adam tearing apart old trailer

Adam tearing apart old trailer

Our neighbor, Adam, is building a micro-house. Adam built it on an old trailer, so the micro-house is mobile.

Adam has collected unused materials and is constructing it very affordably.

I walk over to watch Adam work. He enjoys the project even though he doesn’t have any fancy tools to work with. His spirits are high because his goal is to live leaving a small footprint on earth.

Venus, the Italian Greyhound dog, who is visiting me, walks over with me. Venus is sort of like a micro-dog and Adam’s house looks her size.

I don’t know how long Adam will live in the micro-house. He will also be using solar panels for an electricity source. Not everyone can live in

such a small house, but Adam’s big idea of smaller impact on earth is worth melding into everyday life.

 

 

 

Isaiah 60:22

The least one shall become a clan,
and the smallest one a mighty nation;
I am the Lord;
in its time I will hasten it.
