Take Control of Your Money One Step at a Time | Dave Ramsey

Dave Ramsey’s Baby Steps are designed to help you out of debt and stress and into a life of saving and giving. We’re all in different places with money. Start right where you are and get where you want to be. Know-how is 20% of the equation. Behavior change and self-discipline make up the other 80%. You can do it! Just follow the steps.

Wood Studio House

Simple and form and materials, the Wood Studio House is designed to be eco-friendly in every aspect, from the direction it faces to the placement of the windows. It’s set on a hill above a town north of Barcelona, and built on top of an older structure to minimize its environmental impact. The wood that both frames the house and is used to clad the exterior and interior walls is sourced from the Catalan Pyrenees, there are solar panels on the roof for electricity, a small beehouse for honey, and water tanks that collect from the roofs and exterior pavement, in turn using it for irrigating the lawn and organic kitchen garden. The interior is similarly simple, with stark white floors and cabinetry contrasting with the natural walls, ceiling, and black fireplace with integrated wood storage.

It might come as a surprise that some white Lipizzans are actually brown and many horses have nicknames. Hannah sets the record straight. A look at the tack room makes it clear that order rules the day, which makes sense in an all-male stable that houses 72 stallions. And off we go: before we can cry whoa, horsey, Hannah leaps into the saddle and trots into the manège!
