May Update (and, about a book)

Well, on the upside, not much to report means no problems, so I’m happy to report there are no problems this month (except for a tiny fly issue; see below).

I’m taking a trip for a couple of weeks later this month, so I spent yesterday evening trying to get as much of the rest of the late spring seeds in the ground as possible. That’s two weeks of growing I don’t want to miss out on!

We’ve got a problem with “drain flies” in the bathroom. They’re similar to fruit flies, but smaller, and they, as you might have guessed, take up residence in drains for their procreative activities. There’s nothing like trying to put in contacts and wondering if flies will land in your mouth.

Yum.

Well, in other news, I’ve been thinking about writing a book for awhile, and I think I’ve finally been convinced. While by no means a complete DIY text, the idea is to write something that will give you a clear idea of the reality of building a cargo-based home. Many books have been written on the topic of cargo container building, but they’re, for the ┬ámost part, idealistic instead of reality-based. I want to provide something that will give a real taste of what you can expect, how to troubleshoot some issues, and some useful resources to use in your adventure. I’d love to know what you think! If there’s anything specific you’d like to hear about, let me know that, too.

Happy Thursday. Relax; the weekend’s almost here.
