I Think I'm Really Smart Until I See Things Like This

I am a huge fan of TreeHugger.  It is a green news media site that highlights products and sustainable living, and it has loads of fascinating stories.  I'm addicted to it the way that others are addicted to TED Talks (which I love too).  With all the cool stuff on TreeHugger, I always wondered what it would be like to hang out with the TreeHugger team.  Do they really apply all of that to real life?  Well, now you can see the home of the founder, Graham Hill.  It is 420 square feet of awesome.  (The title of the video says 350 square feet, but Hill says 420 in his introduction.)




Umm... can I have one, please?

P.S. I haven't forgotten to post about our trip to Leavenworth, WA.  I was on a break at work when I saw this, and I just had to share it!

ALSO!  Happy birthday to my spectacular father!  He is 59 and still raisin' the roof!  ;)  I am so proud to be one of his kids!  I love you, Dad!

OMG! I just watched that video in silence (I'm at work ... working hard ;) and my eyes were popping out the sockets! I wish I had an apartment like that in New York! Super cool!

Sooooo what you're trying to say is that my 650 sq ft apartment is PLENTY of room, right?!

Ughhh. (haha)

Ummm this is awesome. Who knew you could pack so much into such a tiny space? It seems like it would be so much easier to keep clean! Thanks for sharing!

Wow, that is awesome!

That is so incredible. I have seen similar things before but my issue is always the same. It's not that I don't like that there isn't much space, it's that to make it so efficient it has to look so modern. His apartment has a lot of white. I wish that they did a super super efficient apartment that had casual/not so modern decor, you know? Thanks for sharing!

That is interesting... I have no desire to have it for myself, but I can see what the draw and appeal for other people would be! I like that it's like the TED Talks in that it forces you to look at something you have seen before in an all new light.

whoa nelly.

also, I had a day where I figured out a really cool and complicated Excel formula at work and then someone sent me a link to a urine-powered generator that some 14 year old girls had invented in Africa and I was like, "WELL. [EXPLETIVE]."

Well that is just awesome! While it kind of makes me feel a bit claustrophobic, I think living in NYC (that's where it is, right?) is claustrophobic in itself and you might as well make the most of your studio apartment! I would totally live somewhere like that.

WOW my silverware drawer is smaller than his- clearly I win at that!

But really, this is incredible! What innovative design. Not as affordable to put together for everyday people, but definitely something from which we can all learn!

Thanks!
