Buckminster Fuller once said, "If you want to change how somone thinks, give up; you can not change how people think. Give them a tool, the use of which will cause them to think differently." The tiny house is just such a tool.

Building The Door

I decided to build my door instead of try to find one that fits the uncommon dimensions i wanted.  Except for the tempered glass, which i had special made, and the glue and screws, this door is made entirely with reused lumber and hardware.  In this dark time of the year when it's tough to work outside i was very happy to have this door as an indoor project. Here are some photos from the process.

The doorknob is white porcelain, purchased from a recycled building store in Brattleboro VT.
