The Anti-Sketchup [NEW] Tiny House Layout Preview

Sketchup Ketchup Smetchup. I commend each of you who apparently seems to run Google Sketchup as easily as getting out of bed in the morning [bad analogy…that is actually not an easy feat] but I’ve waved my white flag after attempting to learn to use the thing again.

The Noise of Daily Distractions: My top three and how to challenge them

Clutter comes in all forms. From dirty dishes to the bills that are filling your mailbox (oh hey, I have both of those!), to even the things that clutter your mind. Shall we dub this, “mind clutter”?
