Introduction to Shipping Container Homes: 

Shipping container homes are houses that are built using shipping containers. The strength, durability, availability, and the cost effectiveness of containers as building material has made these types of homes popular in recent years. When you buy a container, it might appear as hollow boxes with no windows or openings. However, these boxes are highly customizable; they can be stacked and welded together to create beautiful yet economical homes. The next section is about the pros and cons of living in a shipping container home.

Introduction to Tiny Houses

The Tiny House Movement

The tiny house movement is gaining momentum and popularity for it cost effectiveness and simplicity. People who support this movement are happy to live in a downsized home -- their tiny house is a lifestyle that they adopt/adapt and are happy in doing so. While one might argue the disadvantages of living in a tiny space, the financial freedom that it brings along cannot be disregarded.

The average size of a house in the United States of America was 1,500 square feet in the 1950's; now, when the family sizes are shrinking, the average house size is 2,400 square feet. The lavish spaces in a 2,400 square feet house lies dormant for most part of the year. One such classic example is the living room, which serves it purpose for a couple of hours during the Christmas season... rest of the time its existence is hardly noticed or acknowledged; ditto for the multiple bathrooms, the huge dining room, bedrooms, and garage parking. The cost one pays for a huge home that is hardly used is hefty -- a mortgage that stretches almost until the end of one's retirement. Add to this the maintenance cost and the carbon footprint of a huge house!

1. Introduction

Ladybugs seem to come and go without being noticed most of the time. They are cute and colorful insects. Insects are a living species that have a 3-part body, several eyes, 3 pairs of jointed legs and 1 pair of antennae. Antennae are long, thin sensors. Scientists that study insects are called entomologists. Entomology is a Greek word meaning segmented or cut into pieces. The study of insects is part of the field of biology which studies all living things. An insect's body has pieces that are joined together. Some animals have a long spine or backbone which means that they are made all in one piece. Insects are a diverse and fascinating form of life which accounts for more than two-thirds of all known organisms. There are approximately 1.3 million named species of insects around the globe. Insect species are still being identified and classified, with a description and a name. Ladybugs have a smooth and delicate shell on the top of their body. Underneath, 6, tiny rough legs work together so that they can walk around. Watch them move, they are slow and steady. They can tip over by accident and they may get stuck. Their stubby legs and their round body will struggle to right themselves. Just give them a little push and they will have their shell back on top. When ladybugs cluster on a sunny, kitchen window they can be a pest. But they are helpful creatures in the garden, field and forest. They naturally feed on the harmful insects that destroy plants, crops and trees. Ladybugs or lady beetles fly and cluster together.

Basic head layout
There are few characteristics of a head that is relative to almost everyone, this similarity in measurements will be your guide if you are to construct a face when drawing a portrait.

The eyes are positioned below, above or right at the center of the head’s perfect-center level. It is usually aligned with the upper tip of the ear.
The head’s space above and below the eyes’ location are equal.
The nose wings are usually aligned with the tear ducts, and its nose ball is aligned with the ear lobes (this similarity changes depending on the person’s age as the ears grow bigger). 
Both tips of the mouth are nearly aligned with the center of both eyes.

Although you will surely encounter a person that has a little difference on these measurements, it would be easier for you to identify his or her unique proportion value if you have the knowledge about what is most usual. 

The familiarity to different angles of the head is essential when drawing faces.

Head shapes differ in every angle. The position of each facial feature gradually changes as the head makes a quarter turn. And as it turns further on one side, their sizes slightly change and the features reveal their unseen angles, thus, totally changing their shape. 

A head facing in a perfect front view would have two equal sides most of the time, while a head in a quarter angle view shows the outline of the nose bridge which cannot be portrayed perfectly when in front view. The lips would reveal its thickness as it loses the exposure of its further tip. And the further ear and eye will lose its exposure as the head turns further on the side.

These natural gradual adjustments happen when the head moves horizontally. 

Unlike horizontal movements, when a head moves in a diagonal direction it changes the diagonal thickness of the head dynamically, thus, the facial features follow.
Each facial feature comes closer together as the head leans further. The nostrils become totally exposed as the nose ball clearly establish its distance from the plane (face surface). 

The thickness of the lower lip can be easily conveyed as it overlaps the upper lip, and the eye shapes would appear flat.

When the head moves downwards, the nose (depending on its height) would overlap the lips, and the eyebrows (depending on its thickness) would slightly overlap the eyes. The height of the neck would be hidden as the top of the head becomes clearly conveyed, totally changing or rather hiding the face’s horizontal height.

The facial ridges of males are more defined and prominent compared to females, especially the nose bridge, Brow Bridge and the jaw line.

But there are few cases in which the shape of a man’s profile looks more feminine than usual or vice-versa. In this case, you have to rely on the facial features he or she have to clearly portray his or her gender, such as thick eyebrows or any facial hairs for men or pouty, glossy lips and long eyelashes for women.
 Learn to Draw - Manual Drawing - for the Absolute BeginnerIf you are an artist in search of further knowledge about drawing to enhance your skills, then this is not the book for you. This book is for the individuals who wants to be an artist but know nothing about drawing.
I know how it feels when you want to illustrate an idea but you just don’t know how to start. And when you finally grabbed the confidence to mark that paper but then it turned out really terrible and you didn't want to show it to anyone.

This instructional manual is for making the ‘two circles’ cat of yours into
something more pleasing and distinguishable, for enhancing that sheep which looks like a cloud with a face, for turning your stick figures into cartoons, and more.
Learn the very basics of drawing easily by following this step-by-step tutorial and realize that drawing is something that is fun to do, and not something that becomes a cause of frustration.

To give you a hint of what this book is all about, look at this short list of tasks that you will learn to properly initiate after reading and following the tutorial.
Tasks:

Start with a loose sketch.
You need to define the first look of your drawing by sketching it first so it could serve as a pattern for your permanent outlines (defined outlines). If the lay-out of your primary sketch is too far-off from the final piece that you are after, the latter parts are going to be difficult.

Define permanent outlines.
Trace your sketch to clearly define the contour shape (primary shape) of your drawing, and clean it up by erasing the sketch markings.

Show/illustrate some texture. Texture contour provides a better portrayal of the shape’s dimension values. The details such as scales, fur or any print and texture should curve and flow with the contour shape of your subject and adjust with it accordingly.

Draw the necessary details. Use a variety of line thickness and line weight (given pressure on the pencil) to show the right balance to the whole drawing, use thick lines for the parts that should visually dominate the drawing, and less visible and thin lines for the secondary details and parts that merely describe the object/subject’s form.

Proportioning the body structure properly is important when drawing a person. A disproportionate body will mislead the portrayed perspective of your subject. Or worse, the subject might look distorted and deformed.

Knowing the proper length for your subject (the person or character you are drawing) can be easily achieved by drawing the head first. In this way, the traditional method in laying out the proper proportion of the body can be initiated.

The traditional method of approximating the body proportion of a subject is by using its head’s size.

The height of an average man is approximately eight to ten head’s size tall, while a women’s height is about seven to nine head’s size. 

If your subject/character is eight heads tall then the proportions should be as follows:

• The distance of the head/face to crotch is about four heads long.
• The arms including the hands from the shoulders are closely four heads long.
• An average opened hand is usually equal to or almost one head size. While the length of a small hand can be compared to the length of the eyebrows to chin.
• The wrists are aligned or right above the level of crotch.
• The lower extremities/legs are about four heads long.

Adjustments are most effective by decreasing or increasing the length of each part by half head-size depending on your preferred height.

The wideness of the chest is usually two horizontal head’s size or more (two and half) depending on the body built you prefer for your subject. A subject having less than two head’s size will make its actual head look too big or a body proportion too skinny. 

Take note that these proportions are just an approximation of an average person’s body structure. The measurements can change depending on the body type you prefer to portray, such as a long-legged subject would obviously have legs longer than four heads, or perhaps a shorter upper body to give his or her lower extremities more length. Adjustments are done according to the certain body characteristic of your subject based on his/ her function or purpose. 

The body proportion should also match the age of your subject. 

A person that is eight-heads tall effectively portrays an average adult, but it is most unlikely the case when portraying a pre-teen. Considering that the subject will have a smaller head which will be used to approximate his/her height, the number of heads used to convey how tall he/she is must be decreased as well. 

Considering that an average man is eight heads tall…
• A young adult can be seven to seven and half heads tall
• A teenager can be six to seven heads tall.
• A young child can be five to six and half head tall.
• A toddler can be four to five heads tall.

Notice how the head measurements adjust according to their age. An individual’s growth gradually decreases as he/she reaches adulthood. But certain measurements and alignments are still implied no matter how old the subject is, such as the comparative length (per head’s size) of arms and legs and the same level of wrists to the crotch.

Introduction

Making your own clothes is one of the most interesting of skills that you can learn. Down the ages, people have learned how to design clothes through trial and error, with new fashion innovations being used as accessories in order to hold the clothes to the body. These included belts and brooches, which held tartans, cloaks, skirts, and other body coverings in place.

As time went by, people began to look for more and more ways in which clothes could be worn fitting and protecting the form while looking elegant at the same time.

This book is going to tell you all about how you can begin tailoring, by making up your own patterns.
You can get plenty of patterns ready-made, which can be cut out or are precut and all you have to do is pin them onto the cloth, and cut it out. According to your requirements, these patterns can be modified by adding or subtracting, and once you know the basics of drafting, you are going to understand exactly what needs to be done, when you see a pattern, and recognize the different parts of it.

You are going to learn all about pattern drafting, and dressmaking in further volumes, of the series, and this is going to be an extensive project, somewhat like an encyclopedia about all the information of which you could think about dressmaking, simple stitch craft, sewing, pattern designing, and everything else, which has to do with tailoring.

But first, before you think about tailoring, you need to have some basic supplies with you. These are essential in order to give your clothes a professional look, or at least to show that you are serious about tailoring!

You can add to these supplies, as time goes by, and you will get more skilled and enthusiastic about how you intend to draft clothes before you cut them out on cloth.

You may want to do some practice cutting sessions on useless pieces of cloth, so that even if you manage to pin the wrong portions together and stitch them together without even finding out what happened during the pinning and sewing process, you can just rip the seams open with the seam ripper, and begin fresh!

As I did not want to waste lots of cloth, because I have a bit of problem visualizing the end product, – I should have started young – I did my cutting out on sheets of newspaper.
