What's on Tap for 2017?

On January 1, 2015 I posted the first of what has now become 400+ Starter Home 2.0 Blog entries, dozens of videos, and thousands of images across multiple platforms related to the Starter Home 2.0 project. So what does Year 3 and 2017 have in store? That remains to be seen, but here are some new ideas for topics and formats I would like to explore in addition to the continuation of the content I've been providing the past two years.
  • Alternative Point of View Pieces: Probably not formal sit down interviews, but I would like to add some blog content that provides some perspectives from people that have visited and been involved with the design, financing and construction of the Pleasant Ridge and Oakley Home 2.0 projects. 
  • On-Site Video Blog Entries: So far all my Oakley Home 2.0 video blog entries have been filmed from inside my house, but once construction starts I plan on doing those from the 3874 Isabella construction site on a regular basis.
  • Off the Beaten Path Topics: While I certainly plan to focus on topics related to the Starter Home 2.0 mission of designing, developing and building contemporary new homes in established walkable neighborhoods with the flexibility to accommodate growing households in future years with my posts, I think sprinkling some 'Off the Beaten Path Topics' can add some interest and variety to the blog. These post would still tie-back to the central themes of the Starter Home 2.0 Blog in some way, so nothing outlandish or inappropriate, but mixing in posts like '2016 Wisdom', 'Ownership & Community' and 'Real Estate on the Run' are fun to share (and read, hopefully).
Finally, I'll close with posting what is the first new rendering of the year, which is a view from the back yard looking up at the deck off of the main living and dining space.
