Our Tiny House Towing Adventure: Part Two

This post is a continuation of Our Tiny House Towing Adventure: Part One RV Parks Though it took some careful planning one of the easiest and most enjoyable parts of the process was being able to stay in our tiny house almost every night of the trip. We found it much nicer to have nearly everything we needed when we stopped for the day (and a comfortable home for our dog), preferring tiny house nights to hotel stays. By doing research ahead of time and planning out stops where RV parks were located, we knew we’d always have a place […]

Our Tiny House Towing Adventure: Part One

Pulling out of our Fairfield, Iowa driveway at 7am on a cool, drizzly morning, I was filled with an appropriate mix of excitement and apprehension. After a year of pouring my heart and soul into designing and building a tiny house from scratch, our week-long tiny house move was just beginning. Now was the time to make this little house our real home – but to do this we had to get it half way across the country! Editor’s Note: This post is edited from an original version written for the Tiny House Magazine many months ago. It’s long, so […]

OAEC tiny house

Tiny House Find: Occidental Arts & Ecology Center (OAEC)

Recently I had the pleasure of attending a 2-week Permaculture Design Course (PDC) at OAEC. This course has been offered at OAEC since 1994 and is the longest continually-offered permaculture design course in California. We had some amazing instructors, and learned more than could possibly be squeezed in our heads (and hands) over those 2 weeks. I highly recommend it! For those of you who don’t know, here’s one way to define permaculture: Permaculture and Ecological Design are systematic approaches to human settlement that are rooted in the ethics of caring for the Earth and human communities. Farmers, gardeners, land […]

Slide Ranch beach

Tiny House Find: Slide Ranch, CA

For a completely non-tiny house related matter (a casual folk concert in a yurt!), I found myself at Slide Ranch this past weekend. The little ranch blew me away with it’s charm and the wonderful teachers and people who work and live there. While taking a quick tour of the place, I was surprised to see a whole slew of tiny houses! The ranch is public property (part of Muir Woods), and serves as an educational center for children and young adults. It provides day or overnight field trip learning opportunities for classes and groups of all types and sizes, […]

We finally made it!!!!!

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 […]

The Big Move! – and a much needed blog update…

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, […]
