The Kings of Summer

Last night I watched an interesting movie called The Kings of Summer. It’s about a 15-year-old boy who runs away to the woods and builds his own house, with the help of a couple of friends. I really liked it, and it made me think of tiny houses. I think there’s just something about building your own shelter that is so attractive to some people. The ability to put a roof over your head and take care of yourself is very comforting, because most of us want stability. For some people, they want a good job so they can afford a nice house, but for others, putting the plans and walls together themselves feels like a bigger accomplishment than just buying a house. I can’t wait to stand in my house and say, “I built this!”
