New Website!

Hello hello! So many things have happened since Waimate! (Check our blog post about it.) We moved the tiny house further south. The truck we rented stalled on a huge hill on the way.

It’s never too late for shutters

Hi there, This is our first post since hearing the disappointing news about the election. The best way we found to keep from crying was to get started on a small project! Pat used some free pallets, primer, paint and his nail gun to whip up some shutters for the house. I will let the…

Modifications- Improving the Tiny House!

HI Readers! Pat and I have just finished a long day of cleaning and “renovating” and wanted to share some photos with you! Living in such a small space means everything really has to work well.

First Night Stay at the Tiny House!

Hello Again! Friday night was the very first night we slept over at the tiny house. We arrived at about 9:30pm and found the house to be warm and when we turned on all the lights, very well lit. The pillows and kitchenware were quickly put away and we had a nice quiet evening with…

Composting Toilet

Hello! We finally got around to making our toilet, it took a while to find the right raw materials, but Pat scored a sweet crate that we painted, cut a hole in the top, and mounted hinges. The toilet seat is a special slow close seat (you can afford to upgrade your seat when you’re…

Building the Deck

Hello! This morning, bright and early we began to install our deck. As you may know  we already attached a porch roof to the tiny house and used three posts to support it. We attached the deck to the posts and used wooden legs for the rest of the support. The deck was made of recycled materials…
