Deeper Purpose

I’ve found that if we can create a connection between our daily actions and our deeper purpose in life, then each day will be incredibly fulfilling. Unfortunately most people haven’t found their “deeper purpose” in life, and many don’t even believe they have one. That’s OK, but if you’re one of those who would like to create … Continue reading Deeper Purpose

The Surf Shack Tiny House

It is truly amazing to me how many people love tiny house floor plans. If you put up some photos of traditional houses people will certainly like them but when you show them tiny house pictures they are usually in awe and want to know more about tiny house designs and how they are built.
