New Trailer + Move Quickie Update

Things never stop changing here, do they? Let’s all sit back and laugh at how this time last year, It thought I’d be living in my tiny house by now. HAR! Deciding to relocate to New Mexico to build the tiny house kind of tossed a fork in the progress for a while. The dealContinue Reading

The Anti-Sketchup [NEW] Tiny House Layout Preview

The Anti-Sketchup [NEW] Tiny House Layout Preview

Sketchup Ketchup Smetchup. I commend each of you who apparently seems to run Google Sketchup as easily as getting out of bed in the morning [bad analogy…that is actually not an easy feat] but I’ve waved my white flag after attempting to learn to use the thing again. I couldn’t even get a wall to virtually stand.Continue Reading

December Build Update: Almost Done Subfloor + Ready to Hibernate

I didn’t want to leave you guys hanging with where my subfloor left off, which unfortunately, is not nearly as far along as I had hoped. We are all moved back up in Wisconsin now in our little cottage on the lake, so build time through the Winter will be few and far between. TheContinue Reading

You know how sometimes when I start my posts, I declare “it’s going to be a quickie!”, then one hour later when you finish reading it you are all “Not such a quick one there, Kac”. Well, today I’ll keep it real. This is long, and not nearly as well laid out as I’d likeContinue Reading

Build Update 11-19-12: Decking is off, Building is so, totally, on.

Alas, progress has been made! I’ll get to that…but I wanted to give you guys the 411 on what I’m hoping to get done these next two weeks I am spending at our build spot before we head back up to Wisconsin. If you aren’t familiar with the Midwest in the winter, it gets aContinue Reading

Build Update 11-8-12 (I’ll take some cheese with that Whine.)

Let’s just call this my glass-is-half-empty post. Sigh. I’d hide my building frustrations and keep chuggin’ along but, unfortunately for you guys, the only people I have to vent my angst to within 50 miles of here is a baby and a Burger. So I’ll just give a super quick (ha, quick, who’s kidding who?Continue Reading

Day One: The kickoff of building home-sweet-tiny.

Day One: The kickoff of building home-sweet-tiny.

Yee-haw, I can finally say construction has begun! And hey, I’m only about…3 months past schedule. As if there was a schedule. The only thing I have figured out so far between all the planning and re-planning is this build is going to go with the wind. The reality of trying to build while havingContinue Reading

If profanity insults you, I just want to give a kind heads up; I won’t be dropping naughty word bombs around here regularly…but I just wanted to give fair warning (this topic may have gotten me a little riled up…) Ah, the trailer.

A Tear down treasure full of some free building goodies

I’ll try to quit bragging about my free finds soon, I swear. TRY. Okay, maybe it’s all nothing fancy, but today I finally got my front door, a little bit of free flooring that I have no idea how I will use, and some closet doors[also not sure how I’m using] for F-R-E-E. One ofContinue Reading

Where this tiny madness is happening: Welcome to corn country.

I’ve covered the who and the what, but I’ve been getting a few questions about where I am building my tiny house at- excellent question. I know a big road block for many of those wanting to build a house on wheels is where to actually build it. Many of us (including myself) live inContinue Reading
