So, you want to live differently…

Thursday, September 6th, 2012

You know, I do my homework and ask a lot. People tell me that construction materials such as wood or brick are expensive. It is cheaper to build¬†traditional concrete homes in Guatemala City ūüôĀ Not to mention the maintenance, every few years you have to replace things. That might not happen with concrete.

But there are many positive things. The light and the atmosphere generated is different and positive. Inspires and keeps you alert and suddenly many possibilities open up.  Weird but true.

What do you think?

The Small House Movement in Guatemala

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

The small house movement is a popular description for the architectural and social movement that advocates living in small homes. It is particularly vocal in the USA, where the book “The Not So Big House” is credited with starting the backlash against supersized homes. +wikipedia

I’ve been thinking seriously about starting¬†one of these projects. All this social nonsense about having a huge house to live isn’t my cup of tea.¬† So, I remembered this construction that I found a few months ago in Xela.¬† I don’t even know if there’s people interested in Guatemala City, living already with all this philosophy.¬† Maybe it’s time to find out.¬† What do you think?¬† Do you know someone with this lifestyle?
