There are many benefits to frugal living and minimalism. The first is that it helps to keep people from getting deep into debt. Many consumers make the mistake of living well beyond their means. When a person takes on a large debt burden, they are not financially independent. This can hurt one's chances of maintaining a good credit score. Minimalism helps to ensure that people have the essentials that they need and that no matter what happens, people will be provided for.

Building a timber frame home is a dream that probably began as a tiny seed of an idea. Maybe you saw an interesting article in a magazine or website, visited a home show or the home of a friend. Either way, at that moment you were struck with its massive, rugged beauty and were left with an impression that just wouldn’t go away.<br />If you are out of the daydreaming phase and ready to get your project rolling, it’s time to get organized and do something. This book is meant to provide a guideline with helpful ideas and information for someone who is considering building a timber frame home. <br />If you’re still in the daydreaming stage, it will give you an overview of the kinds of decisions and plans you need to work on. If you’ve already begun your quest, this book will help you consolidate the work you’ve done and help you focus on what should be accomplished next.<br />The book is divided up into three parts. <br />•Part 1- The Low Down, delivers the basic facts about timber framing. Truss types, enclosure systems and different options that affect the frame are covered. <br />•Part 2- The Steps, delves into the steps you will go through while you create your house. Finding your team, design, engineering and the process your timber frame company will go through to create your frame are broken down into six steps. <br />•Part 3- After Its Up, looks at aspects to think about after the timber frame is up. The mechanical systems are discussed, as well as thoughts on creating a scrapbook of your house from start to finish.<br />My goal with this book is to allow you to get familiar with the realities of building a timber frame home, and see if it’s all you thought it would be. I hope this book will clear up some misconceptions, answer some questions and describe the basic procedure that a family will go through in creating the house they can call home for generations. Let’s get started… <br />

It is no longer possible, even to people of only faintly æsthetic tastes, to buy chairs merely to sit upon or a clock merely that it should tell the time. Home-makers are determined to have their houses, outside and in, correct according to the best standards. What do we mean by the best standards? Certainly not those of the useless, overcharged house of the average American millionaire, who builds and furnishes his home with a hopeless disregard of tradition. We must accept the standards that the artists and the architects accept, the standards that have come to us from those exceedingly rational people, our ancestors.<br />Our ancestors built for stability and use, and so their simple houses were excellent examples of architecture. Their spacious, uncrowded interiors were usually beautiful. Houses and furniture fulfilled their uses, and if an object fulfils its mission the chances are that it is beautiful.<br />
