Thread To Break The Forum Silence

That’s great @kel – sometimes Londoners with their inch of snow seem a bit prone to worry too much, but that’s some serious snowfall, especially with an outdoor toilet :smiley: I hope you’ve invested in a styrofoam seat!

I can only imagine how chilly it can get in an old house – hope you manage to keep toasty!

Hehe - old showman’s caravan, 70’s, kitsch as hell - complete with ornate door handles, bendy lines everywhere and etched mirrors; currently being battered by the winds and rattling around a bit :wink:


#243

where exactly are you? thinking of setting up a caravan at blackshaw head soon…:slight_smile:


#244

Good luck, it’s seriously hard to find the space to do this these days!

I’ve been living this way a long time now. Couldn’t go back to living in a house - okay, days like today are tough, but on the whole it’s awesome!


#245

i know what you mean…I lived that way for quite some time in the past. After having the experience of a house, I really need to go back…Luckily enough we found space on a friends land…:slight_smile:


#246

Like this?


#247

Hehe that’s rather gaudy!!!

Actually, this:


#248

Cozy! I guess it is not in its “portable” state…


#249

I doubt it will ever move again - it would probably fall apart :joy:


#250

Once I’m set, I’ll post some photos here :slight_smile:

301 spotted in @rdevine1’s clip for an upcoming modular doc:

My friend Wes is part of the team behind this and I’m super stoked to see it come to life!


#252

Link didn’t work for me!


#253

Yeah looks like the link was removed - I’m sure it’ll pop back up again shortly!


#254

Here is a link to the documentary website for anyone who is interested:

Kel, are you familiar with the tiny home movement in the states? I’m a huge fan of it personally, and I think your setup is great!

Not exactly no, but I do know the kind of thing, I think it is really good, especially if combined with very economical ways to heat/cook/light etc… while I like the tech, I do have a nostalgia for simpler times.

I started living this way because I became very disillusioned with the beliefs and world view I had been brought up with, it was a way to live a very ascetic lifestyle and largely remove myself from a world that makes me feel uncomfortable, if not very anxious, most of the time. I have no regrets, I feel way more alive than when I had a ‘proper job’ and all that, I hope I can live my life and die living this way.

I shouldn’t have been! It’s absolutely fantastic!

Even though I can’t really grok what which control does at any given time, I still find it highly playable – if you hone in on a “range” that you like, you can actually twist knobs quite freely and it won’t go into harsh noise territory. I know I’m preaching to the choir, but just wanted to follow up :slight_smile:

I kind of want more… or another one… or something. Uhh. :no_good_man:


#258

Sounds quite like Hertz Donut!


#259

Have you tried the BIA? Wondering how they compare.


#260

Anyone hop in on the Plaits pre-order action?
