Easy Living

I made a house of balsa wood. It didn’t take very long to make. About two weeks. I moved in and felt good about living in a home that I made myself.

I discovered the great thing about balsa wood is its lightness makes it easy for renovations. If I don’t like a wall, I take it down in a minute. If I want a new room, I take some balsa scraps and quickly arrange it.

Another nice thing is termites hate balsa.

I do have to be careful because of the wood’s soft and light nature. I step carefully. I can only hang the slightest of pictures on the walls. And I have to balance the furniture or else the home tips to one side.

Sometimes when it gets windy, I wish I reconsidered and gone with oak. But I know me, I would have run out of patience and never finished.
