I’m a post-modern polymath, with too many interests and too little time. My perfectionism sometimes trips me up. I have been interested in cabin living most of my life, and in the cargotecture and tiny house movements for about 5 years. I have mad wordsmithing and organizational skills; some skills in carpentry, design, painting and mechanics; and little to no skills in electrical work, or lifting things above my head.
In building this cabin, I hope to gain several things. I will have someplace to call mine, no matter what happens. I will learn practical construction skills, as well as what to do when things go sideways. I will learn more patience with myself; I will get to practice letting go of expectations, because nothing ever goes as planned.
When I’m not building my container cabin, I can be found tending my garden, flapping my hands, looking for a swimming hole, or on a BMW G 650 GS named Skrallan.
Some people have been curious about my build, some enthusiastic. Others have been downright negative. To quote Ben Harper:
my choice is what I choose to do
and if I’m causing no harm it shouldn’t bother you
your choice is who you choose to be
and if you’re causin’ no harm then you’re alright with me
So step off, naysayers, and watch the process unfold.
