Homes with Soul

Today, I am thankful for people like SunRay Kelley and Dan Phillips -- people who imagine living in spaces that have soul and then go out and build them from materials other people would throw away.

I'm trying to figure out how to retrofit my own house to be more soulful, how to make it more energy and water efficient, and how to do so without creating more waste.

Most of us will never live in a Dan Phillips house, or a SunRay Kelley sculptured shelter. Besides which, America does not need more houses -- we have more than enough already. We need to find a way to take the inspiration of others and apply it to a cookie cutter house in sprawling suburbia and turn what has been a blight into an artistic endeavor. If we can do that, we will surely inspire others to do the same!
