The Honorable Judge Booty


the only domestic instinct my parents have managed to pass on to me is the tendency to hoard multiple plastic bags in another plastic bag despite the fact that I will probably never need this many plastic bags in my adult life

True Tiny Houses are not fixed structures and can be moved, so in most cases they do not require planning. Built to the same standards as any large timber frame building. Fully insulated and double glazed, our tiny houses offer a warm, dry, secure and unique outdoor experience at any time of year, and whatever the weather.

Comfortably accommodating a family of five, each has been crafted to last for tens of years with very little maintenance. Yet, as most of the construction takes place in our workshops, a typical house can be erected in just one day. Although the same cost as a Yurt they are more practical, and will last years longer.


During rehearsals, Brad Pitt and Edward Norton found out that they both hated the new Volkswagen Beetle with a passion, and for the scene where Tyler and The Narrator are hitting cars with baseball bats, Pitt and Norton insisted that one of the cars be a Beetle. As Norton explains on the DVD commentary, he hates the car because the Beetle was one of the primary symbols of 60s youth culture and freedom. However, the youth of the 60s had become the corporate bosses of the 90s, and had repackaged the symbol of their own youth, selling it to the youth of another generation as if it didn’t mean anything. Both Norton and Pitt felt that this kind of corporate selling out was exactly what the film was railing against, hence the inclusion of the car; “It’s a perfect example of the Baby Boomer generation marketing its youth culture to us. As if our happiness is going to come by buying the symbol of their youth movement, even with the little flower holder in the plastic molding. It’s appalling to me. I hate it.”
