Roger Cobb is a author who has just separated from his wife. He moves into a fresh house and tries to work on a novel based on his experiences in the Vietnam War. Strange things begin event around him; small things at first, but as they become more frequent, Cobb becomes aware that the house resents his presence.
Why, why, why! Question I ask myself quite often in my current situation; I should have asked Joshua to be my Aunt's true estate agent! Well, one, I didn't think a little suburban house would be in his line of work. Two, I thought we would test to sell it "by owner" using a couple of pointers I had learned from Joshua through his a lot of lines of education. Three, I allow a vehicle salesman agent who came to our begin house dig his method in to become my Aunts agent. We now are on a 2 month deadline to have this house sold & closed! The questions I've asked the current agent about how they shop come back vague. I am now spending my own cash trying to half method advertise on Fb myself. Stuck in a contract with him for a whole year! -- Anyway to obtain out of that Joshua? :)This book shows me a lot of avenues that were not taken to support optimize my Aunts house for the market. Really only plucking out a couple of these 15 reasons is NOT enough! Joshua is very thorough in his use of data, his long term acquiring of true estate knowledge from outside the box is inspiring and second to none! This book sucked me in and has thrown me off track of my day but of course in a amazing method (FB AD for my Aunt can wait till later).This book is HIGHLY recommended & MUST READ for any homeowner OR agent in today's marketplace!P.S. The story about Spot is real ;) (not that any of them aren't)
I know Joshua personally and can attest that if you wish to sell a house quickly you should read this book. I've watched him over the latest several years grow his true estate practice and he has some of the best marketing around and is always getting top dollar for his properties. In addition he is just a phenomenal entrepreneur and this book will certainly support you sell your house quicker. As a true estate investor myself this can easily mean few thousand dollars additional in my pockets. I appreciate Joshua and all of the hard work that he does definitely pick up this book!
This book makes a amazing bonus for agents working with sellers to support them sell their home. Josh gives amazing ideas, hints and necessary facts about the home selling process. I really thought the chapters on cleaning up the home, using storage when important are problems agents are sometimes not comfortable addressing. Josh offers his years of experience, professionalism and expertise. His chapters on video marketing and the newest aspects on staging are must reads for home owners or agents. Amazing info!
Joshua is the best at what he does. We use his knowledge to train our realtors in NC to do the awesome things he’s doing in Chicago. I am personally mates with him so I know first hand how passionate he is at what he does!
I think the reason why this book was so disappointing to me was that it started off so well. The idea of the galvanized, stitched creatures, a two-headed farm hand, color-coordinated evil houses . . . how could it go wrong? Well, it went wrong by having a romantic interest that really didn't create any sense and a heroine who was just kind of useless. Matilda started off strong, but then turned into that protagonist who spent a lot of time just imagining the would-be paramour naked because he was just so dreamy. Every decision Matilda makes is a poor one. Every time that Matilda and her galvanized fantasy-man interact, I kind of wanted to gag. The one time that she does follow a logical train of thought and come up with the smartest (and correct) decision, she just drops the idea so that she can rely on everyone else's lying on other people was, for the most part, a poor strategy, as absolutely EVERYONE in the book is lying about who they are or what they want. At a certain point, it just becomes exhausting. Yes, you need deception to make intrigue, but making everyone be deceptive makes it so that its expected, lessening the mystery. It got to the point that I wanted to shout whenever someone pulled the, "I'm going to problem you commands / requests without any explanation while expecting blind obedience and / or trust" line of thought. Sigh. The premise of the book was so promising, and then the author just stumbled around as if unsure what to do with it.
With all the glowing reviews, I bought this and read it expecting a amazing read. I kept plowing through the glaring inconsistencies, the insufferable female lead's constant stupid decisions, the never-ending far-out imaginary elements that are never integrated or meaningful. A lot of times I almost stopped reading in disgust at the shoddy plot and infuriating inanities and gaping plot holes, but I have read some of this author's books and kept thinking, "surely this is going somewhere, surely she will tie it together somehow." But no. There is no resolution, no explanation, no lessening of the excruciatingly annoying female lead's endless cluelessness and willful stupidity. I found myself writing tons of notes in the text to vent when some new, especially idiotic thing happened, but that didn't really help. This book is the opposite of a well-planned, intriguing, engaging read, and the characters are annoying skin-deep caricatures. It is worse than a waste of time; as you can see, its idiocy actually created me angry, which fortunately doesn't happen often. There were a lot of potentially interesting plot elements, but they were never joined into a story, just dumped. There wasn't even a conclusion or an ending. For me, there was nothing but irritation and frustration and eventually resentment as I finally reached the latest page. I recommend giving this book a miss.
There were so a lot of plot lies thrown in here that went nowhere it was hard to create sense of the book. I'm not one to pick books apart but it was such a horrible ending for the series. So a lot of hanging threads! Why was the coat Bram gave her so important? Why did Grandma ask if it was time to go every conversation in the first two books when she never actually goes anywhere? Why does Bram HATE Slater in the other globe (zero explanation)? Why is Hollis deemed untrustworthy but never does anything wrong? Reeves Silver just disappeared in this book. The plagues created zombies but nothing was told about them. Feral safe just animals? Why does Evelyn have the body for a time when Slater has Roberts for the entire time???That's only a sampling of the a lot of plots brought up and left dangling. It was so frustrating I wanted to scream. If I'd known the latest book would be this poor I never would have read the first two!
So a lot of strange things happened in the first several pages of this book that I created my husband stop constructing whatever diabolical thing he was working on in our basement, so I could have his undivided attention when I read those pages to him out rst sentence:"The method I saw it, a girl required three things to begin a day right: a hot cup of tea, a sturdy pair of boots, and for the feral beast to die the first time she stabbed it in the brain."After that we search out that something in the ground (nano) is presumed to mutate animals like the crocboar our heroine Matilda is currently trying to kill, it's causally mentioned that said feral beast makes for perfect "dragon chow," and the farmhand first known as "Neds" quickly becomes Left Ned and Right Ned (b/c Neds has two heads).So weird.And yet . . . so tilda Case is a Frankenstein-esque creation of her father's, a scientist of amazing renown (or notoriety depending on who you ask), but unlike the creature in Shelley's Frankenstein, Matilda is . . . at least partially . . . truly her father's see, when Matilda was a child, she became very sick and almost died, but her brother somehow managed to transfer her consciousness into the body of a "stiched" ere are twelve other "stitched" people in Matilda's globe known as the galvanized. They are immortal. They do not age, they feel no pain, and they cannot be killed unless you irreversibly scramble their ey're basically sentient ey're owned and employed by the eleven houses that control different essential resources (and the WORLD) . . . and to the general population they are . . . FACT---If you google the word "galvanize," the definition you'll obtain is:1. shock or excite (someone), typically into taking e world-building in this book was 's necessary that I firmly establish how spectacular the globe Monk made in this fresh series, before I go on to say that by the time I finished House Immortal, I had so a lot of unanswered questions that it took all of my self-restraint to not search her and give her a shakedown (YES, a shakedown) for the next e premise was equally great.I don't wish to share too much for fear of giving something away, but suffice it to say that the tips Monk drops with just enough frequency to hold us chewing our fingernails rather than throwing things (like books and/or temper tantrums) are well worth the frustration when you finally obtain to the fist-pounding euphoria of knowing you were right all along (and I so was).BUT.What comes now?We'll have to wait until book 2, Infinity Bell, hits bookstores in March to search out. And you'd better believe I will be counting down the days.Until then, House Immortal by Devon Monk tosses you headfirst into a brave fresh globe of mutated monsters and people, all controlled by Houses grasping for power and . . . immortality. From two-headed farmhands to tiny, fruit-loving octopuses that live in trees (and yes, are kind of cute), I can promise that you have not read anything like this modern parade of human oddities and the effect of scientific experiments gone horribly awry. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for not-your-ordinary heroine, or not-your-ordinary anything, really. Strange is good.
Originally posted at Vampire Book ClubIn the year 2210, the globe is run by different color-coded Houses that control the world’s resources (i.e. water, technology, minerals, etc.). Each House yearns for more tilda Case has always known she was different. It’s hard to miss the stitches marking her body showing that she’s been sewn together. Under the impression that she was one of her father’s myriad of creations, she’s taken by surprise when a stranger shows up on her doorstep, stitched like her, telling her opponents are on their method to “claim”her, and it would be in her best interest to go with him.Abraham Seventh is a galvanized, one of twelve that woke up after an experiment gone wrong killed everyone else in the vicinity. The Twelve woke up and were stitched back together, and they are immortal. Over the years, and through shifting of power, the galvanized search themselves in the employ of the Houses. Galvanized are powerful beyond measure and cannot be killed, they’ve achieved amazing feats of valor over the years and are looked upon as celebrities. They elevate the status of any House, and Matilda is the newly discovered, as yet unknown, 13th galvanized. There is nothing the Houses won’t do to be the one to control her. Despite their power, the galvanized have no rights, so Matilda can be claimed without any say in the matter.What we learn right away about Matilda is she is not okay with anyone telling her what to do. She’s had to be self-sufficient from a young age, and some stranger telling her where to go does not sit well. There’s also the fact that since her parents’ murder was committed by a House years ago and her brother is currently (she thinks) indentured to one, she’s not simple to trust a galvanized under House control. But seeing no other method to hold her family home safe, she agrees to go with Abraham Seventh, and she learns that the seeds of deceit run deep in this futuristic society.I absolutely love the homage to Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. It’s a classic for a reason, and the galvanized in Monk’s House Immortal also struggle with being seen as monsters. People toggle back and forth with worshiping the galvanized and fearing them. What I was more surprised, but happy, to search was the mystery surrounding the galvanized. Why it was only twelve that survived the experiment and what it could possibly mean. To elaborate too much would give things away, but suffice it to say I’m looking forward to how Devon Monk resolves ’s a very twisty-turny globe that Matilda has to navigate through. I appreciated that several of the characters throughout the story reiterate the globe history because as you go about reading the book and learn fresh and interesting things, the info you understood before could take on a whole fresh on Monk has crafted a fine beginning to a fresh series with House Immortal. I was rooting for the amazing guys and the poor guys were truly vile. Not knowing who to trust throws a wrench in a lot of situations and dual/shifting loyalties will always cause a amazing conflict. We are left on a slightly nail-biting cliffhanger, but with book two, Infinity Bell, coming out in March 2015, I hold telling myself it’s not too long of a wait…Right?
Frankenstein, anyone? Albeit, a more modernized version, but the characters in House Immortal quietly echo the famed story with its scientist-created me 150+ into the future, the modern globe is ruled by Houses which control beautiful much everything under the sun: technology, vices, medical, water, the list goes on. There are 11 ruling Houses in this fresh world. Made from something called the Restructure, the fresh globe was faced with overcrowding and the burdens that go along with it, including chaos. The 11 Houses were place in put as a means of control and the population of the globe was given a choice to pick a House to live under, complete with a contract of service. Those who disagreed with the fresh order chose to side with House Brown, the often overlooked 12th House, a House with no say, but much freedom. Matilda Case is one such member. Living off the grid on a farm that was her childhood home, she spends most of her time caring for odd, manmade critters of her father's creation, along with her ailing grandma and a two-headed farmhand, Ned Harris, affectionately known as Left Ned and Right is fresh globe isn't a very peaceful one, as each House is vying for total control over everything. There is one thing more than any that each House wants to possess the most of -- the galvanized. Immortal stitched beings brought about from a long ago science experiment called the Wings of Mercury. The galvanized are inhumanly strong, immune to death, disease, and any ailment that affects mortals. 12 Galvanized currently reside in the world, but there is a surprising 13th member. One who is very related to the galvanized, yet so very different. Meet Matilda Case, galvanized 13, made by her family's hands and not as experiments, like other galvanized.Tilly's peaceful, out-of-the method life is completely shattered when Abraham Seventh shows up on her doorstep, bloody, with a notice from Matilda's mother. A mother who's been dead for a number of years. Facing a new, uncertain future, Matilda's about to enter the war of her life. Because of her galvanized status and because of some interesting qualities that stem from being made as she was, she's now a hot commodity. So sought after that Houses are willing to pay any price to acquire her. So much so that Houses are willing to begin a war, just to have her under their service and therefore, their rule. That's a lot of people after one woman and as Matilda learns, trust is nonexistent in such a dire situation. With only Abraham and Neds Harris as allies, it's a tough globe out there for Tilly on Monk has made such an interesting, inventive, odd future with House Immortal, and 'odd' in this case is a high compliment. I was instantly hooked, even after just reading one chapter. There are so a lot of various aspects, so a lot of various traits and qualities that really created this story stand out for me, mostly that the entire series is based on a group of Frankenstein-like people. No vampires, no weres, no witches, magic, or ghosts. Just stitched, made beings. The globe she built has quite a number of things to hold straight, various happenings and various factions that molded and shaped and now run this fresh world, and while it can be daunting to hold some of those things straight, it added such depth and almost a sense of wonder to this futuristic world. Because of the a lot of futuristic aspects and some of the more scientific-themed characteristics of this story, like the medical elements and gadgetry, Monk has nicely balanced urban fantasy with sci-fi, without one overshadowing the other. And of course, there's a tip of a blossoming romance, which is always the cherry on tom line -- amazing first installment in Monk's fresh House Immortal series that I highly recommend for UF lovers looking for something a small different. I will certainly be continuing on with this series and with the doozy of an ending that House Immortal had, March 3rd and Infinity Bell, book 2, can't come soon enough.
4 Stars!This book was surprisingly original. I true a lot of books that revolve around the paranormal. Vampires, werewolves, shifters of every kind, wizards, you name it and I have probably read a book about it. Don't obtain me wrong, I still have a lot of books to read in the urban fantasy and paranormal romance genres but it is becoming quite rare to for me to stumble upon something that is completely different. This book was various and that is one of the things that I absolutely love about tilda Case, or Tilly, is tough. She takes care of her Grandmother, her family's land, and an assortment of monsters with the support of Neds, her two headed farm hand. Matila is not just a regular girl. She is a girl that has been stitched together and she lives in a globe that doesn't know that she exists. There are others that are stitches together and they are called the galvanized. There are 12 known galvanized individuals who are immortal. There haven't been any fresh galvanized since the original 12 a lot of years ago, until e globe has been divided into Houses that are identified by a color and an specialized set of skills. When Abraham Seven, a galvanized from House Gray, shows up on her doorstep injured, Tilly is quickly pulled into a globe that she has spent her life trying to avoid. The Houses are constantly struggling for more power using whatever means important and Tilly is soon at the center of is is the first book in a fresh series and there was a lot of info to process at the beginning of the story. This story really picked up for me about 20% of the method into the story. Don't obtain me wrong, I liked the first 20% but I had a hard time putting it down after that point. The globe had a uniqueness that I absolutely loved. Right away, I knew that this book was going to be different. I mean there was a giant lizard dragon living right there on Tilly's e characters were as special as the story. I loved Tilly. I loved how tough she was and how much she cared about others. All of the galvanized in this story were so very various and I had a few favorites. Tilly's farmhand, Neds - Left Ned and Right Ned, seemed to hold things interesting. I really liked the whole cast of characters.I must applaud Devon Monk's writing. The story was perfectly paced. The globe building was solid. The characters were special and likeable. The story pulled me in and I had a hard time doing anything else until I came to the latest page. This is the first time I have had a possibility to read anything by this author but I will definitely be reading more in the future.I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a well thought out and special world. This is a series that I plan to continue to read.
Will I read book 2? Yes. I do wish to see the story unfold a bit more and it seems to be headed in a direction I search interesting. The one huge strength of the book is the globe building and the author's dedication to it. Unfortunately it barely gets two stars from me because I found it overly descriptive, headed my an unbelievably naive female character-seriously, I spent half the book wondering if she was just stupid, an evil man who is boringly predictable, and a romance that blossoms in 24 hours and lacks any sort of meaningful connection between the characters. This latest problem is one I search to be a particular tag of not good storytelling.
Fun read, actually a combination of 'high steam punk', a dystopian future, corporate greed and memorable characters. This is a very well written and edited edition which was compelling and thought tilda Case is a very strong, huge farm girl with some unusual animals and companions. She is a leader of the Browns, which is the lowest of all the corporate guilds, who test to live off the grid and out of sight and mind of the powers which are the 'owners' of the world. On a normal day with her pet lizard full and happy, while the mysterious grandma continues to knit her over long scarf directly from the fleece of her pet sheep (part nano), a strange, wounded, giant of a man knocks on her front door.And the clock starts ...This is much more than a restaging Buchan's '39 Steps' or even Blade Runner, it's a well crafted, fun read with rich back stories and a dubious future. As such, I was delighted with the overall quality of the ideas and the implementation of very various realities and ideas. I look forward to exploring more of this series and other works of this remarkable writer.
I wish the next book - NOW! Review at Yummy Men & [email protected]#$% Chicks.[...]———-House Immortal is the first book in the fresh series by the same name by Devon Monk. Devon Monk is one of my favorite authors and she has proved it yet again here. She has a amazing urban fantasy voice. The world-building, characters and action are interesting. There is enough romance and humor to create it amazing. In fact there is very limited romance here so if I love it even without the powerful romantic elements, something that is very necessary to me in a book, you know it’s really tilda (Tilly) Case has led a hidden life because of what has happened to her and her family. At the start, her parents have been dead ten years and her brother has been gone for three years. It is starting to feel like her brother, Quinton, is missing not just gone. And her grandmother seems to be missing a few bricks.Tilly is powerful and smart. She cares so much for her mates and her brother. Her life has been so isolated, hidden, and now the globe is coming to her. She can’t hide any longer and has to create choices which affect not only her life but her mates and family’s lives. I like her SO much.Abraham Seventh comes for Matilda. He is one of the 12 immortals in the story, called the galvanized. Tilly is the unknown galvanized, a fresh kind of immortal. The galvanized are an interesting bunch. I hope we learn more about them, beyond their debut here. We learn the most about Abraham, but not enough.I also wish a LOT more about Quinton and the grandmother. And a LOT more in general, the ending has a bit of a cliffhanger and I wish the next book NOW. Titled Infinity Bell, it will be available March 3rd e other main “character” is the Houses. They are the groups , each led by a strong dictator of sorts, named by color. House Green is agriculture; House Blue is water; House White is Medical; House Gray is people and so on. They manage their resources and war each other, politically and actually, to control as much as possible. They all wish to control Tilly. House Brown is the House who wants to be off the grid and left alone. I can relate to House Brown. I hate politics, and the inevitable corruption, although it makes for fascinating reading.I didn’t wish to stop reading. House Immortal kept my interest every second. I worried about Matilda and Quinton and Abraham and grandmother and the sheep and even Oscar. I wish to know so much MORE. I highly recommend this series and this author.5 starsGiggle worthy quotes -“We know. He’s a mate of our House. He sent you to that coffee store so I could pick you up.

Unless you live in the boonies where there are no building restrictions or you're willing to live in an RV park, finding a legal put to live in your little house is going to be next to impossible. In an urban area, your best bet is putting your little house on wheels but even that has its share of challenges. Ethan is upfront about the fact that most of the options he covers are not legal, so it's up to you to consider your tolerance for risk.I don't have a little house yet, but have discovered that building (or having someone build) a little house is half the battle, because at the end of the day the little house is no amazing to me if I can't search somewhere safe, affordable and pleasant to 'park' it. This book is a amazing resource in terms of figuring out whether it's worth the problem and ter weighing my options, at this point I'm leaning heavily towards continuing to live little in a little apartment because I personally don't feel comfortable living illegally in someone's yard or renting a zone in an RV park. Renting an apartment gives me all the benefits of living little -- low cost of living, little environmental footprint, next to no upkeep, ability to move easily -- but without a huge financial outlay (the cost of building the little house) or having to think about utilities (propane vs solar, grey water, black water, electrical load, water source) or legalities (tiny houses on wheels are classified as RVs, and where I'm based it's only possible to live in them full-time legally in an RV park; it may be various in your area, but in mine RV parks are not affordable, pleasant or centrally-located).In short, this book confirms what I already suspected thanks to preliminary research I'd done before reading the book: To live in my own little house would mean flying under the radar and most likely off the beaten track, sacrificing living in a neighborhood within simple walking distance of all the amenities of town life.If you're thinking of living in a little house, this book is definitely worth your while because it's necessary to think beyond the build.
I was thoroughly impressed with this book and its coverage over a number of subjects I've been researching. I really liked how it explained looking into the zoning, as well as ways to network and search a put to park. It covers a lot of potential obstacles, which at first seems discouraging. But, in the end it's best to hear all the potential pitfalls before you've invested and can still avoid as a lot of issues as possible. Overall very helpful!PS - I at first wished to print and read it off paper, but there are a lot of links within the text that are very helpful!
Ethan Waldman's Little House Parking is an perfect resource for anyone interested in a little house. The writing is clear and simple to understand and he presents the info in a logical, orderly fashion. One of the things I particularly appreciated was that he provides suggestions and links for extra resources. This book hit on so a lot of key locations about where and how to park a little house. Waldman also does a amazing job providing a dozens of possible options and then gives concrete tip for what to evaluate in arriving at the best solution for your particular needs. If little house living is in your future, this book, as well as his other, Little House Decisions, provide a wealth of information. I know I will continue to refer to both as we plan our little house. I highly recommend you check them out.
We are in the planning stages for a future little home within two years. This book is a must-have for those who don't yet know where their house will be located, because without this knowledge, you could be evicted from a desired space. It is worth far, far more than the 99 cents introductory price! Don't order a thing for a little home until you read this and do the important homework!
This book has so much amazing info in it, things to look for, lingo that will be helpful to know, hints and things to look for. Definitely worth a read if you are at all serious about building a little home and are fresh to zoning info.
I highly recommend reading this, Ethan's second book before you spend a dime on building or purchasing a house, little or otherwise. Better than spoon-feeding us solutions, Ethan takes us on a down-to-earth journey of appropriate questions to support us create up our own minds. Once you know where you will "park", and before you build or renovate, purchase his first book, "Tiny House Decisions" to take full advantage of his clear-thinking helpfully illustrated by his own considerations and conclusions.
This is the one book that anyone must read before building or buying a little house. Ethan Waldman lays it out like no one else who has written on the little house subject. He has saved me a whole lot of headaches before I begin on building my own little house. This is a must have book. Obtain it first.
We're considering building a TinyHouse, and we live just down the street from where Ethan is currently parked (which is how we met). We're inspired by his wonderful house and the potential for our small is isn't a listicle or a weeny e-Book. It's full of necessary considerations and hints and tricks that only an expert would know. Worth every penny.
I have been considering getting or building my own Little Home for a small while now. But I was wondering what restrictions I might run in to. I'm so glad I came across this book, which answered just about everything I would have to consider before & after I build my Little Home. Thanks so much Ethan for putting in the time that saved me a lot of research!
I received this book as an early birthday show from my daughter, Belle, a few days ago. My head and heart have been pouring over it for two days now and I love it!I am a THOW (tiny house on wheels) designer/builder/dweller. I own several versions of Deek’s books and all of them evidence his effluvient creative spirit and inventive use of resources. Back in 2012, when I attended his workshop (and slept in the Gypsy Junker, page 142), there were only a few books on the shop on little houses and/or is Rennaissance man (father, builder, designer, musician, artist, boy scout leader, community founder) has authored several previous books that are chock full of his awesome drawings and unconventional dream shacks. This publication stands out as a unbelievable collection of a lot of micro-shelters around the country that he has filmed and contains some structures we have built in his workshops. Deek’s writing style is charming and his observations succinct. A plethora of little shelters are presented with each of their customized storage innovations and construction materials in bold living color.I highly recommend it as a first book to any little house enthusiast for all of its hints on tools, salvaging strategy, construction basics, micro shelter plans and affordable décor ideas. Whether you are planning to construct a backyard tree house, mini-studio, office or a year-round little home, this book needs to be in your hands, dog-eared, enjoyed, used, and cherished for years to ose of us who live in little houses are very minimal in what items we keep. I have only 30 treasured books in my 184 square foot little house on wheels; and this is the third one from Deek! He inspired me three years ago to fulfill my Silver Bullet Little House challenge, and I passionately believe Deek’s micro shelters book will inspire you too!
This is going to be a gift, but I sat down and carefully paged through it. My impression of it is that it really is strictly a coffee table or inspiration book. I knew that going in to some degree, but what I didn't realize is that I was either familiar with a lot of the featured builds in here already or they were the authors own builds which use a lot of the same primary ideas. That's not really poor thing per se, but I didn't personally search it any more inspiring than a amazing session of web surfing and Pinterest pinning. I obtain the impression I'd like the author though and hope the book will inprie the person I bought it for more, since he's not at a PC as often as I am.
Hey, this is a amazing & amazing book full of neat ideas about little locations to hang out, kick back and relax and read or write, play guitar & have a few mates to obtain by with. Here on "the island" the cave gets damp and musty in the rainy season. Sooo.... after I obtain my "crop" in and obtain one of these constructed I'll be all ready for the change of seasons to lay back and have fun life. Thanks for the book - Crueso
