A big thank you goes to Module R for sponsoring Shoebox Dwelling! Module R is a fine Brooklyn-based shop, featuring cool customizable art and design. I’ve been a fan of their selection for a long, long time. In our city they are a “go to” place for modular storage, interactive toys (for kinds of all ages), stylish designy accessories, awesome screens and dividers and much more. Check them out!

Lovely readers, pardon the silence this week. The entire editorial staff of Shoebox Dwelling (me) is rigorously packing due to a long-awaited move to Manhattan (read – even shoeboxier dwelling). Wish me luck, and I’ll see you soon!
Folks! I would like to introduce an enhancement – the mobile version of Shoebox Dwelling got optimized today. This change came with a story. My reader, Kyle, emailed me recently and shared his thoughts about the user experience of the site. He pointed out that reading it on the go made him frustrated by its lack of mobile-friendliness. And, being a media developer, he wrote a code to fix the problem. As you can see from the before and after shots above, the new mobile version is much more streamlined, it zooms on the posts right away and eliminates side-scrolling. Also, if you wish to place a Shoebox Dwelling bookmark on the screen of your device, you will get a minimalist, easy on the eye icon (a small detail, but an aesthetically crucial one for some finicky people, author included). I hope you guys enjoy these improvements. Thank you for this beautiful gesture, Kyle!
