We’ve had a great 2013 (we built a house — how cool!). Here’s to making 2014 even better!
It’s been a long journey. As usual, the full days of packing, moving (towing, ugh), and now preparing our spot to park the house has all pushed blogging to the back-seat for a while. But I wanted to write a quick update. Before I forget, here’s visual proof of tiny homes taking over the world. We were passed by a Tumbleweed home somewhere in New Mexico or Arizona. Totally crazy event and so happy Ani was quick enough with the phone-cam to capture it! As you may know from my last post, the first half of our journey out West […]
Dear Tiny Project readers, It’s been a while, and for that a apologize. As it turns out, getting a house finished and preparing to move it, all your possessions, as well as your girlfriend and dog half way across the country is quite a lot of work. I only have time for this update because we are currently stuck in Amarillo, Texas, due to a large winter storm that has made almost all of I40 very dangerous to drive–all the way from Oklahoma to Arizona is under some amount of snow or ice. So today is a rest from travel, […]
Welcome new and existing visitors. Whether you saw us at the open house or found us online, we hope our house has been a source of inspiration. We’re about to embark on our long haul West — headed to Sebastopol, CA! We welcome any and all contributions with open arms (and paws). Any donations will go towards gas and RV park fees during our week+ road trip. Thank you! (You can also donate at any time in the future through the donate button on top right of each page of this site.)
There’s been a lot of visible progress in the last couple weeks. Here’s a quick recap: Once the metal panels were done, I had an amazing local woodworker (Duncan MacMaster — amazing guy, incredibly skilled and experienced) get started on the cedar siding while the house was still in its warehouse location. It was incredibly excited to get some cedar on the walls. I could start to see the fruition of my planning and materials resourcing coming together before my eyes! I won’t get into all the details here, but I had been waiting almost 2 months for my replacement […]
Going to a tiny house workshop is the best way to learn all of the ins and outs of tiny houses, the problems you may face when building/living in one, and options for construction and systems design. Last fall, I had the pleasure of attending a workshop lead by Dee Williams of Portland Alternative Dwellings. I plan to attend more if I can. Maybe you’ll see me at one of the events below! Here are some upcoming tiny house workshops and events in 2013: Portland Alternative Dwellings February 23th & 24th (stats in just a few days!) April 27th & […]
