Checking In: The Kimmy Schmidt Suite "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

We decided to take a quick summer break and check into The Kimmy Schmidt Suite today, inspired by the Netflix series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt filled with way too many fun colors and activities to even think about getting a case of the Mondays! Kimmy is my go-to soundtrack for working at home on a grey day or just a lonely day when I need to hear (and imagine) some over-the-top hijinks going on in the other room so I can get through the day with a smile. If youre having a hard time embracing the beginning of the week, too, well leave a key to the suite at the front desk for you! Caitlin

Day 1: Pattern Downloads by Marina Dunbar "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

All this week, were featuring paintings-turned-pattern downloads (yes, the piece above is a painting!) by Marina Dunbar, an artist living and working in Charleston, South Carolina. Inspired by the colorful, tropical charm and history of the city where shes a member of the shared creative space Redux, Marina uses techniques that involve the bending and manipulation of her surfaces. These motions guide the paint and reveal a resemblance to organic elements, as you can see in todays pattern. You may remember our studio tour of Marinas creative space its housed in an old classroom filled with light and her bright artwork.

Thanks so much to Marina for sharing her work with us so we can brighten our devices with true works of art! You can download todays pattern here (vertical) and here (horizontal). See you here tomorrow at 9am for our next installment. Caitlin

Woodworker Builds The Perfect Tiny House Boat for Life on the Water "IndyWatch Feed Diy"


A woodworking wizard named Richard built the Koroc a beautiful floating tiny house RV on aluminum pontoons. Its unbelievable what a comfortable home hes created in such a small space. Imagine living in this micro cabin, floating on a river or a lake, and enjoying fresh air on an enormous deck? If you cant tell already, were in love with this boat!

We spent a beautiful sunny afternoon on Le Koroc (built by Richards company Daigno) admiring his handy work. Everything in this house boat is built by hand, from the beams to the cabinets, the deck, water filter, bathroom, kitchen and more. Richard has a solar panel for electricity, a Martin propane heater, a propane cooktop, a DIY carbon filter for filtering grey water, a self-contained toilet, two dinettes (one that converts into a double bed), and tons of windows, not to mention the huge deck. Its off-grid minimalist living paradise!

Outstanding concept and design. Love it. Hope to see a bunch of similar designs that tap into this new market.

The Future of Transportation? "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

In the pursuit to provide vehicles for billions of people, how cheap and flimsy can you go?

In the pursuit to provide vehicles for billions of people, how cheap and flimsy can you go?


Ive always driven small efficient vehicles and fully support reducing costs, saving energy and reducing pollution, but theres a reasonable limit to how flimsy you can go. An Indian car company makes what could be the flimsiest car in the world. They use a 3-wheeled tuk tuk frame and build a box on top. To give you an idea how cheap they are, they only cost about $1,000. This Indian car can be pushed over by a man or a gust of wind. You can see the crashes online. Vehicles like this would definitely take the fun out of driving for me.

Compare this poorly balanced lightweight vehicle to a much more stable solar golf cart such as the Kudo Cart.

Kelly: It is remarkable that they can sell such a vehicle at that price. I went to the companys website and they have all kinds of three wheeled vehicles for sale below $1000. I spent more than that on my electric bike (which I love by the way it is my first choice for getting around town.) They all seem to be powered by small gas engines.
