Even armed with good design intentions, sometimes cost makes it a slippery slope to building a McMansion. Let's find out what happened to the art of building.
The trendy days of McMansions are so over. The Tiny House that brings the delights of sustainability and less stress zen-like living are what's happening now. But we're still obsessed with square-footage costs. Who can afford good craftsmanship? Well, maybe craftsmanship is something worth investing in.
But what does good craftsmanship cost? How do you balance a smart budget with a well-built home, so you don't end up building a smart small home that's really a mini-McMansion? And what happened to the art of building? Where are the craftsmen and craftswomen?
What happened to craftsmanship?
We're talking with expert Brent Hull, author of 'Building a Timeless House in an Instant Age.' Trained in the art of museum quality preservation at the prestigious North Bennett School in Boston, Brent believes that what we build defines us. Over the last 60 years, he says we have become fixated with building homes as cheaply and fast as possible. New homes today are often built without much care or consideration and have no design philosophy or lasting appeal to them.
"For Hull, the main goal in writing this book is to help people understand that the house they build defines them and in turn defines our society."

"It is one thing to talk Spirituality, but it is another to have Practical Tools to use to live your Spirituality. As the child grows into adulthood it will be bombarded with so many different approaches to living life, and because there are so many approaches, one might ask what road is the road for them. We will discover some of those tools and have open discussions--yes, something new this time--you will be able to join in the conversation about your use of the Practical Tools presented each week in the pocket handbook. Learn how you can bring more Passion, Creativity and Balance into your everyday life, and share your brief testimonials."
This series is dedicated to restoring the harmony and freedom of mankind and life on earth, as taught by the ascended masters messengers Elizabeth Clare Prophet and Mark L Prophet.

John Smart began working on feature film in the Art department while still in college at the University of New Mexico where he received a BFA in theater. After a number of years working on such films as The Big Easy, Heathers, and Barfly - he decided to teach in Los Angeles and at school for teens who’d gotten in trouble with drugs. He became known for bringing film industry professionals to the school as guest speakers and mentors. Establishing a relationship between the school and the local film and TV industry that lasted long after he was gone. When John returned to working on films he dove into legal clearances. He’s worked on a long list of projects including: The Good Lie, Don Jon, 2 Guns, Shopgirl, The Hot Flashes, Linsanity, Looper, Bullet To The Head and approximately 60 other films, TV shows and DVD games. He loves clearances because he can both assist in legally getting a production difficult items they may want or need for a project - but more importantly a Clearance administrator is one of the last firewalls a production has avoid legal action - and a copyright infringement claim can be lethal for a film.
