Tom’s Tiny Home

Tom made this meticulous tiny home, cutting out all the mini-shingles by hand. It’s 7″ wide, 16″ long, 10″ high (to peak of gable). It was made for us to use as a display when selling our book Tiny Homes at fairs.

The best way to buy books is in an independent bookstore. But if you buy books online, see our website for a 30% discount, free shipping (in USA), for 2 or more books. We beat Amazon.

Sculptural Sauna by Travis Skinner

Hey Lloyd, We just finished this sauna, we wanted to share it with ya.

–Travis Skinner

“The Anglerfish Sauna is a wood-fired sauna on wheels! It was built by the Hundred Handed Ones architectural collective that I started in collaboration with Travis Conn.

We use sculptural forms in architectural works. The Anglerfish Sauna showcases these principles in an experience. We ask the audience to step into the work and experience natural forms inspired by life.”

Check out the details here: the fins over the tires, the spine, the light, the teeth…

Travis built a unique tiny home on wheels that was featured in our book Small Homes.

Check out his very creative and highly-crafted designs at pairoducks.blogspot.com.

Beach Art



‘Between Worlds’ chronicles a unique collaboration between two renowned artists: Andrés Amador, who creates expansive works of beach art and preeminent long-exposure photographer Henthorne, who attempts to capture Amador’s ephemeral installations before they are reclaimed by the elements.

It’s a story that explores the challenges and rewards experienced by artists who sacrifice their singular vision in pursuit of creating something breathtaking and original.

Beach Sculpture

Artistic Beach Sculpture

I came upon this beautiful arrangement of beach objects at Muir Beach last night as the sun was setting. Mac Murphy, who often swims in the cold ocean sans wetsuit for 20 minutes or so, made it. He picked up the feathers — a lot of dead birds last night, and created this lovely circle.
