Tiny House

I have succumbed to the TINY HOUSE MOVEMENT.  Tiny homes are here to stay and I want to be a part of the action!  My new tiny home is being built now and completion date is forecast for spring 2016.  EXCITING!!  I feel like the Target lady on the Christmas ads on TV!

I’ve been watching tiny homes for ten years on social media, in fact, I built one in 1999!  I disguised it as a playhouse for my daughter, but it was really a tiny house – as I put a full sized door on one side so that it could be used by adults when my daughter was no longer interested in it.  Screen Shot 2015-11-13 at 4.23.22 PMTurns out, the door remains hidden under the siding, because she never lost interest and the playhouse was sold with the house.  Seems the new buyer was also enthralled with the tiny house too, because he wouldn’t close if the playhouse wasn’t part of the deal.  No problem though, the footprint of the house was 12′ x 14′ with a height of 12′ so it would have cost more to move it than it would cost to build a new one.

That is exactly what I have decided to do.  The new tiny home will be built on a trailer as so many tiny homes are.  The trailer is 8′ wide and 12′ long.  You can follow along with me here as I document the building of the new tiny home, which I intend to rent out to people that would like to try the tiny house movement and see if it would work as a temporary or permanent lifestyle!  We already have some bookings for the tiny home in spring 2016!  How exciting is that?
