People love "Before and After"
But rarely we see the middle part
Which is far cry from what we normally see
Only a few are willing to show the mediocrity.
I'm a true mediocre
I want to give you a window into the struggle
See what really looks like to try and to fail and try again
No matter how old fashion or dumb our way is
As long as you like what you do, just do it your way
Embrace your own mediocrity!
Old wood from my dad workshop to build the frames
There's a various kind of woods
Some light, some dark, some with holes
It doesn't matter
The beauty in diversity!
2.1m x 3.15m
Is it possible to live within 6 square meters?
I want it as small as possible
Can be disassembled for transport
I draw a simple plan
First the deck
Then I put on a plastic the chair
Sit down to look around
Feel like I want a door here
Two windows there...
After finishing each part
Sit down again
And decide what's next
Not knowing everything is a part of my plan.
One and a half-day for the deck
Two and a half-day for the studs
Total five days for the whole frame
Quite heavy than expected
Like the feeling of barefoot on natural wood
Love how the wind and light flow in and out
Through those cracks between floor planks
Feel like the house can really breathe.
