Small House Society and Gregory Johnson in New West Magazine Article About Simple and Small Living

Effective Living > Housing > Small House Society

Gregory Johnson was interviewed for an article in New West Magazine about simple and small living. The article made mention of the Mobile Hermitage and the Small House Society.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

“These homes are so small they were rolled here to the Moiese Valley on the Flathead Indian Reservation in western Montana on a pickup’s flatbed. Called microhomes, the two box-like structures were designed and built by Stevensville writer and woodworker Charles Finn. His inspiration originally came from an off-the-grid cabin he lived in for three years in British Columbia. Finn has crafted six, all told, a minor business that’s more art, he says, than construction. He sells them for about $135 per square foot. The microhomes are simple yet intricate, tightly crafted from recycled and storied wood, reddened and warm. Some of the wood for the Chacon and Laue homes came from a former goat shed in nearby Dixon. Heritage Timber of Potomac in the Blackfoot River valley supplies most of Finn’s recycled building materials.” [more]
