Just Thinking

A friend of mine is coming over to visit for tea. He's been talking about building his own cabinets for the house he's building, vs buying already built ones and wants my opinion on some he's going to go look at. I don't know if he'll be using plastic knobs or metal or wood ones, guess I'll see that soon too. The house he's building is really cool. It's round!! First he built a huge square deck, then built the round house on top of the deck. Most unusual, though it's really great. It's around a 30 minute drive from town, way up a mountain where there isn't even hydro lines. He packs water from a nearby creek & has a generator for power, planning to install solar panels. This house will remain 'off the grid' if he has his way... though it sounds like he may not have that luxury.

a round house sounds fabulous, but I wonder how everything would fit in as most furninture is square?
being off the grid is good, and hard work too I would think.

We are going to transfer back to our old house. And I want to make a new cabinet for my room too. I'm looking forward to your next post about this so I can look at some options! Thank you so much for sharing!
