The Little Tiny House In Kublai Park

I don’t know whose cellphone I used when we went to this small house that looks like of a Hobbit House in New Zealand, I was so amazed with the architecture, I even thought that it is just a house park, a display or something but we talked to the caretaker of the whole park and she said that it is indeed a house. The owner of the park is the one living there when he visit the place. The house is so tiny, it has a tiny living room, one tiny bedroom, tiny dirty kitchen and the whole kitchen is so tiny. But it was well built beautifully that you will have your jaw dropped once you entered this little tiny house.

Most of the time, I will make sure that we have hand soap to use in the kitchen, so whenever we wash our hands there we have hand soap not a bar soap waiting for us. But you know how much expensive they are, it is not necessity but it is nice to have it there at least. Due to financial constraints, I would set that purchase aside and will buy something more important. When I saw this to Gaisano Mall and when I found out that the price is just right to my budget I put it in the cart right away. It’s all worth it because the kids like it and not to mention that it smells good and because the container is big enough, until now we still have enough.

I always wanted to buy air freshener but I would always say “next time” thank GOD that the previous days when I grocery shop, I was able to include this to my list since I have a little extra. But even it is there sitting in the corner, they still didn’t have the effort to spray in the house. I don’t know what they are waiting for or who they are waiting for to spray it over. Geez maybe I will be the one to initiate it first so they will follow, honestly I don’t know what to do anymore or what else to do in the house to make it look nice, I wanted to do this and that but I just don’t have enough, especially now that the car repair is very much expensive plus the enrollment of the kids is scheduled this month.

Because Of The Betamax At Home

We just had a reunion today with my classmate; it was my first time to attend the reunion. We were talking about stuffs in high school until we talked about the house that we always gone through whenever we don’t have classes. And one said it was our house that we rented before during high school. One jokingly said that I was one of the richest because we had betamax and they always came over to watch a movie. I think I was the only had a betamax or VHS that time so if there were no class, they always hang out in our house. One of my classmates asked what happen to the place, told her a mall was put up in the area so maybe that house was long gone already.

I still remember that house though; I grew up as a teenager with that house. I had so many memories of that house that when my sister decided to move out, I didn’t like it. I didn’t want to move because I will surely miss the place, the house and my friends. But I guess life is not constant, whether you like it or not, we should always move forward, you can look back with the house, the life that you had there but you cannot go back because you have to build your own home to the new place, you cannot get stuck of what your life is before, you should face the future and move forward.

A Home for your Horses

Horses need a comfortable place to call home the same as humans and other animals. Whether the horse is a pet, a show horse, or simply kept for riding, they need a place that shelters them from the weather and provides safety. There are all types of barns from a small single stall to the more elaborate. The construction of a barn will depend on how many horses will be housed and the cost as well as personal preferences.

Advantages of Steel Versus Wood

In the past many barns were constructed totally of wood. Today, the focus on durability as well as comfort, ease of use, and the health of the horses has led many to choose steel for the construction.

There are many advantages to steel frame horse barns. Constructing the entire barn of steel provides even more benefits. When using steel frames, the steel columns are anchored to the foundation which is made of concrete. Using steel protects against decay, cracking, and it is fire resistant. When wood poles are used, they are buried in the ground and often they will decay compromising the structure.

Wood barns will require more maintenance than steel. The nails used often back out as the wood constricts and expands with the weather. This can also cause it to split. Steel will stand up to all types of weather without these problems. Wood is also prone to insects such as termites. Storms, particularly ones with high winds can damage a wood barn more easily than one made from steel.

Other Factors

Another factor that must be considered is the cost. Steel frame barns are a bit more expensive than a pole type but in the long run they cost less. Why is this? The steel will last a lot longer than wood and require less maintenance. Steel is safer for horses because it holds up to kicking and cannot be chewed. Sometimes horses will chew on wood.

Steel barns cost less to insure because they will not burn like a wood barn. Property with a steel barn will appraise for more than than property with a wood barn. These are just some of the reasons more people are choosing steel barns such as the ones offered by American Buildings, Inc.

Providing the most comfortable home for the horse or horses that will live in the new barn is important. Healthy, sanitary conditions as well as a safe environment are more factors to consider when choosing the best option.
