One of the many reason that we decided to embark on this journey we call "The School of Life" was to reduce our environmental impacts by living small and consuming less. We realize how big the world's population has gotten and how the consumption of natural resources and synthetic goods/products affects our precious home we call "Earth." Since that is a goal of ours, we really wanted to make as much of the inside reflect that as possible. Luckily my uncle has owned a fencing business for many many years and has a goldmine of reclaimed wood on his property. The company is now ran by my uncle and my two cousins, check them out at:
We are going to try and use reclaimed wood from him for the majority of our walls and entertainment center. Initially I planned to paint the couch white, however, once we got it together there is no way I could paint over this beautiful wood!
