 1.  A Tiny Home To Call Your Own: Living Well in Just Right Houses

Foreman, Patricia & Lee, Andy Trade Paperback

Brand New! 

You can live in an attractive, aesthetically appealing, upscale house AND you can do it so that it is quality built, architecturally beautiful, highly marketable and profitable. Small is beautiful and functional in housing. Smaller scale homes can be more livable, cozy, homey, enjoyable, low maintenance, and easy to clean. Tiny houses (300 sq.ft. to around 1,000 sq.ft.) can be more affordable and socially responsible than the current trend of McMansionization that is chewing up America. Some of them can be built on existing lots without requiring new land purchase. Impress neighbors with style and freedom rather than with large scale, impersonally built square footage. 
Price: 19.95 USD

 4.  City Chicks: Keeping Micro-flocks of Laying Hens as Garden Helpers, Compost Makers, Bio-recyclers and Local Food Suppliers

Foreman, Patricia Trade Paperback

Brand New! 

The local foods movement is mushrooming and chickens have become its mascot. City Chicks brings fresh, innovative and new information about keeping backyard flocks of urban chickens. City Chicks describes in detail how chicken’s “skill sets” can be employed in a “Hen-Have-More Plan” for food production systems. Instead of using oil-based chemicals, chickens can help produce fertilizer and compost; they can turn yard waste into garden soil. Hens can also be used as mobile, clucking, (organic and non-toxic), pesticiders, herbiciders, and insecticiders. And chickens can be of civic service. One chicken eats about 7 pounds of food “waste” a month. A few hundred households keeping micro-flocks of laying hens can divert tons of yard and food biomass “waste” from trash collection saving municipalities millions, even billions of tax payer dollars. To quote City Chicks: “What if a city had 2,000 households with three hens (or more) each? That could translate to 252 tons of food waste diverted from landfills each year ... Add to that number the tons of yard waste (grass clippings and leaves) that hens can help convert into compost and the amount is as enormous as the tax-savings of NOT having to handle, transport and store all that biomass waste”. (Page 20 to 21) This 460 page book has over 100 photos, sketches, and tables bringing visual clarity and simplicity to complex concepts. 
Price: 22.50 USD
