- Aug 4, 2005You know I was just watching hgtv show called:
Small Space, Big Style Episode HSSBS-101 titled Big Style, Big City
Visit four homes in four big cities that prove good things DO come in small
spaces. Retro and modern design combine in historic Old Town Alexandria and
industrial chic meets laid back beach in a California bungalow. Then see how
one couple met the challenges of a fifth-floor apartment in New York City
and why an accomplished painter chose to live in a WWII transport vessel!
Some of the air times are: August 04, 2005 8:00 PM ET/PT; August 05, 2005
12:00 AM ET/PT; August 06, 2005 2:00 PM ET/PT; August 07, 2005 11:00 PM
ET/PT; August 08, 2005 3:00 AM ET/PT
Seeing the last home of the WWII transport vessel (neat shape with a curved
roof and each roof end was higher then the center section), it made me
wonder if anyone has thought of using the idea of one of the medieval barges
from amsterdam or wherever as the basis for a trailer.
