Hey there. Apologies for only one post yesterday. I’ve been a somewhat under the weather this week–most likely due to a bit too much burning the candle at both ends–but I think these images of weeHouse, a tiny prefab marvel by Alchemy Architects near Marfa, Texas, will help get me through the day today. I hope you like them as well.

At only 440 square feet, this weeHouse is small–the basic unit ships in configurations at large as 850 square feet–but with plenty of style.

The simple shapes and materials make this so appealing, especially as shown here surrounded by West Texas desert. Each weeHouse comes with an Ikea Applad kitchen; you can just glimpse it there, on the left.

The addition of a wooden deck completes this tiny prefab retreat–and also gives me my four favorite elements in a space: steel, glass, concrete and wood. The wide and shallow shed at the far end of the deck houses a washer and dryer along with the water heater.

There’s a sense of modern grandeur when the weeHouse is shown against the West Texas sky. I’m ready for one of my own; are you?

This is me in the mornings, and these days, like Maddie, I can’t wait to get some coffee in me.

It's coffee time. Won't you join me for a cup? | japanesetrash.com

Coffee has become a real passion of mine lately. The aromas of fresh-ground beans and a newly brewed pot are heady.

Don’t get me wrong–I’ve always been someone who’s loved his cup of joe every morning, but now I find I’m craving it like a long-lost friend. I see images like this — of coffee and beignets at Cafe du Monde in New Orleans — and remember specific moments in time and place where I was enjoying coffee.

A friend whose family lives in Guatemala (she’s from there, originally) recently brought me a few pounds of beans, so I’ve been grinding my own. Wonder if that’s what’s lead to this renewed relationship with coffee? Maybe I’ll get out my old French press again, scald some milk and whip up a cafe au lait. It could become my new morning ritual.
