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!

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: 

Starting up a portable sawmill business can be stressful, because it involves a lot of hardwork and strength. The sawmill business is a legitimate way to earn a living. It can be handled as a part-time or fulltime job, which only depends on the amount of money you are willing to spend on the business; a high a sum of money is not required to set up a portable sawmill business. People who are still skeptical about going fulltime into the sawmill business can take the job as a hobby until they can decide whether to withdraw or delve into it fulltime. 

My son has been sawing a truck load of logs. 

When setting up a portable sawmill business, you should consider certain factors associated with the business, including the location or work area, the kind and size of wood you want to use, and the right sawmill equipment needed for the kind of sawmill business you want to establish. Setting up a portable sawmill business doesn’t only require capital; you should be able perform the task yourself. You can learn from an experienced sawyer the special skills needed to mill wood. 

There are various questions asked everyday by people who are interested in establishing a portable sawmill business; they want to know if the business is viable, if it has some law restrictions, how profitable a sawmill business is, and so on. A portable sawmill business, like every other business, needs hard work and perseverance for it to succeed. Some people who are in the business have stated that generally a year is required to operate the business before a reasonable profit can be realized. This business is not a get-rich-quick venture which produces profit overnight; you need to show commitment and a high level of extra effort.

Preface
Anxiety, what is it? The common perception of anxiety is a disorder that keeps a person all tense and worried. The reality however is quite different; Anxiety is not itself a disorder, it is a universal term used for a collection of disorders that cause fear, nervousness, worrying, apprehension, etc. These may sometimes be combined with physical symptoms that include shaking, sweating, chest pains and headaches. Anxiety is not a disease or an epidemic but is a natural response to certain events; for example you may feel anxious on a roller-coaster or when you’re trying to finish a test in the last few minutes. Therefore, no one is immune to anxiety; anyone can have a sudden anxiety attack and experience symptoms of anxiety.Many people are not always under the effect of anxiety but experience sudden jitters or anxiety attacks. 
Initially anxiety is not dangerous but it can become a problem when you start to feel anxious for no reason. This is the first sign of danger and if left unattended can cause problem that can disrupt your entire social and professional life.
“Reading, learning and even thinking about tackling anxiety will make you more anxious.”
– Unknown
Right now and right here, it should be clear to you that this is an entirely false and ridiculous myth and believing it would do you no good. If you don’t know what you’re dealing with how are you supposed to counter it? So do not let this thought become a hurdle in managing anxiety.
In this book you’ll learn how to counter every disorder associated with anxiety and you’ll learn to do it naturally! Therefore, just relax and get ready to get all that uninvited anxiety right out of your system.
