Breakfast This Morning With Louie, Titsch, and Kyle

I took off early Wednesday morning with Yogan, my carpenter friend from France. This is Friday morning, so I’m not posting chronologically, but this is hot off the press: at breakfast this morning with Louie and Titsch*, this little boy walked up holding one of our Tiny Homes mini books, showing it to me. “Where’d you get that,” I asked.

“You gave it to me last year.”

Earlier this morning, I’d given a Tiny Homes On the Move mini book to a 3-year-old girl sitting at our able and she started going through it page by page and then said, “This is really cool.”

Made my day, to say the least.  Kids are with us.

Here’s Kyle Radic, driving south to San Francisco with his mom and she said he’d brought along his favorite book:

*Titsch and I were born on the same day (not the same year), and my mother’s maiden name was Jones, so I consider him my brother. He’s from Wales.

He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated.
