Reviews - What do customers think about Freewheeling Homes (The House That Jack Built Series)?
An awfully nice little book Jul 28, 2006
Appropriately enough, a book about mobile living is economically sized, yet surprisingly luxurious. The photos are tempting, like the best food porn, and helpful besides. The small size makes it conveniant, and the illustrations are alluring. These little houses or wagons offer the comforts of home with the freedom of the open road. There's shepherd's wagons, gypsy vardos, airstream restorations, and a whole host of other options, each more enticing than the last. Brightly-colored, beautfully-constructed, and lit by stained-glass windows, these wagons make the comfiest of homes---and I'm biased toward the tiny myself----look cumbersome and dull.
