Wow! Where did September go? I have officially and happily moved in for the semester! These pictures are a few weeks old, mostly because I have been procrastinating to post. Some of me wants to believe it's simply because school work and normal work trumped posting, but another part of me believes it's because I don't want this journey to end. I also don't have Internet connection out at the tiny house, which is a huge part of it too. Anywho, I did get all moved in and began to work on other small projects during the quiet, peaceful evenings. I'll try and keep posting little details I've been working on (the interesting use of space/storage is probably my favorite part)!
In other exciting news, I've made the local newspaper! I've had lots of people congratulate and ask questions, which I love; perhaps the reason you're reading my blog is because you happened to see the article in the paper. How cool is that!
I hope all of you are enjoying the change in weather; I know I've loved being able to throw on a sweater and my rain boots, while drinking tea on the front porch. Eat some yummy pumpkin pie, watch the leaves change, and read an inspirational book for me (:
Today's been a lot of fun! My dad and I finished putting this awesome stone around the entire house. It was a gift from a family friend who was getting rid of it from their yard (thanks again, Vollmer family!). It's an awesome finishing touch, and will help insulate the house as well as keep little critters from crawling underneath. When the day comes to move the tiny house off my family's property, we'll just remove the stone and place the house on a trailer. I don't know if I explained before, but we didn't want to have the expense of a trailer right off the bat, and we knew that the house would stay put for a while, so we just put in up on wooden bases for the time being.
The picture on the right is also pretty exciting! I managed to bring out some items we've been collecting from different thrift stores. I'm slowly but surely gathering pots, pans, plates, & utensils to fill space. And man, look at that stove!! (:
Tomorrow & Monday my dad and I are going to work on a few things in the bathroom, including some shelving & the shower curtain rod. We're also monkeying around with the dining room table; we're trying to come up with a way that it can flip up so I can have some extra space in the kitchen when the table isn't needed. More pictures to come of finishing touches!!
