Small House Society – News 201206 | 30 June 2012 | Saturday

Dear Friend,

I know that time is precious for everyone, so I’ll try to keep this update short. The approximate reading time is about 5 minutes. Further down, there’s some repetition of announcements from last month for those who’ve just joined the list.

Design Boom. Our member builders are featured by Design Boom in their Small House archive. If you’ve not seen it already, you should check it out.

Small House Music. There is now a music group called the Small Houses. You can hear their amazing music on the Small Houses MySpace Page. Their latest album, Our Dusking Sound is available on iTunes. You can preview their music without the iTunes program on the web version of iTunes. Here’s one of their new songs called North (click the play button below to listen).


About Stuff. Allstate Insurance has a new campaign focused on the stuff we keep, “Your Stuff Tells Your Story.” [Read more…]

New Member Builders. Please welcome and the latest addition to our Directory of Designers & Builders.

Introduction to TIF Economics. Those of you interested in urban planning may want to read the article Tax Increment Financing – A Basic Introduction to TIF Economics and Benefits – A Cure to Ugly Buildings and Urban Stagnation.

Website Update. We’re planning an upgrade to our website that should make it easier to use. More about that in future newsletters.

Thanks. I want to thank the global team of volunteers and contributors “behind the scenes” who help make all this possible. I’m very grateful to the many people who continue to uphold and advance the mission of the Small House Society. Thanks again for your support. Please let me know if there is any way that the Small House Society can serve you better.
