Robyn Griggs Lawrence thumbnailSpace is precious in crowded Hong Kong, and apartments are small and expensive. Architect Gary Chang’s brilliant solution—a sliding-wall system that allows him to create 24 different “rooms” in his 330-square-foot apartment—is absolutely brilliant. "The house transforms, and I am always here," explains Chang. "I don't move. The house moves for me."

If you love small homes and small space solutions, this video is a must-see.

This article or vlog? is the most accurate description of how to restore the family fiber!! I was in tears , I missed soo much of my childrens life and now dislocated as a Mother of Grown men. not to mention..the loss of my ability at the time to provide for my daughter the way I felt she needed..she was adopted out at birth..to this day..shes somewhere in the world, dont know if shes had a good life or worse than I could have given. I am ashamed but I dont even know the day she was born..blocked it all out!..where ever she is..im sure shes beautiful and will find her true happiness her way.. after all shes my kiddo.. tears..people.. the world is from the beginning of time trying to destroy the very reasons for living..love and simplicity and value in Family memories..not things!!! Divide and conquer is what I have known for soo long..divide families, put things and work in the way, cut us off financially from each other..gas prices, work, crime..keeping us chained to depression.. I became a trucker after a major downsizing at my company. with my kids all squared away with friends and relationships I hit the road..living in a space of 85 inches!!..taking my kids with me was the best!! ..knowing that Im living within my means and actually enjoying the freedom from things...priceless..bless you mother earth news haha..m.e.n
