An UNBELIEVABLE Shantyboat/Houseboat in Wooden Boat Magazine...

First...THANKS to the crew over there at "Tiny: The Movie" (an in-the-works documentary- which I'm part of) for such kind words in a post related to my NEW "Humble Homes, Simple Shacks" book in conjunction with the new Lloyd Kahn Tiny Houses Book (which I'm also in!). That made my day. Here's the post...

Thanks to Mike Percuoco from our Tiny Housing Facebook group for passing on word about this issue.

As for the Shantyboat/Houseboat- check these out! I also stopped at Barnes And Nobles the other day to pick this new magazine issue up (Wooden Boat Magazine), and while browsing in the "Home Reference" section, I was shocked to see that they already were carrying my book! Almost two weeks ahead of its release date too- no complaints there! Thanks to Kathie Bendix for sending a BnN photo below. I later went back to the same store en route to band rehearsal to sign all the copies, and all had sold already. Thank you! The book keeps kickin' butt in the Amazon "Carpentry" Category- hitting #1 worldwide a few times now. Its still hard to believe....If your local bookstore doesn't carry it, please ask them to. Thanks!

Benjamin Guy is the owner of this boat- from the MA area- Ben, if you ever come across this post- contact us- we'd LOVE to feature/film this boat for our "Tiny Yellow House" show....
