After my last post where the Feng Shui cube was featured, you could say that boxes have been on my mind. In fact, I found another fabulous article in the New York Times with these teeny tiny micro homes created by Derek Diedricksen. How cool are these? Talk about designing in a box!
Using salvaged materials these shelters are constructed for around $200.00. This one is called the Gypsy Junker. Take a look inside at the bunk bed and heater that runs on vegetable oil, of course!
Here is Diedricksen, cozy in his model, aptly named, “The Boxy Lady”. Here’s the interior shot…

For the past three days, I’ve been pretty much existing in a box (a conference room) from 8 am to 7 pm! But it’s all good because I’ve been learning about Ninja Selling.
No, not that kind of Ninja…lol.
Ninja Selling (named after the creator whose nickname is Ninja) is taught by Larry Kendall and it is a fantastic Selling program to bring out the best in you, so you can pass on the very highest level of service to your clients. He also teaches how to maintain your active lifestyle while still being a dedicated and successful realtor! Many of you know, that I juggle tennis, skiing, biking, remodeling and real estate, so this program was perfect for me! It has been a fascinating course and I highly recommend it!
Last year, was one of my best in Real Estate at Windermere – thanks to all my downsizing clients who were ready for a new lifestyle but I want to continue to sharpen my skills and knowledge so I can best assist the next wave of “Downsizers”.
So let me know if you have any of your own downsizing dilemmas, concerns or ideas. I’m here to assist you with all aspects of the transition!
Have a fantastic weekend!
