Craft & Design

I love the Library of Congress. Not only do they guard a treasure house of literature and historical documents, not only can you buy reprints of amazing historical photographs, but you can actually get plans to build your own timber-frame house! I love the idea that architectural plans can be so accessible; it’s really just like a sewing pattern writ large. (And for a different skill set!)
This sweet, tiny, three-story cabin is from 1680; if you don’t need a house, you could scale it down to make an awesome playhouse for kids. (Via Lloyd’s Blog, which has great posts about everything shelter-related.)
