One of my greatest dreams is to build my own home. Hiro and I have been designing and collecting ideas and photographs for the past 5 or 6 years. We’ve been using our various apartments as test grounds for different storage and furniture ideas. And we take monthly overnight trips by bike and train to explore towns along the Metro rail to better know where we might want to live.
But despite all this work, the dream home feels far, far away. Financially, building a home anywhere near Los Angeles will be a stretch. Despite experience with basic woodworking and a few welding classes, the skills required to build our home still feel out of my league. And we still don’t know what’s important to us in picking a place to live.
But two weeks ago, I had a breakthrough!!!
I’m going to build a mobile home!
