Patio!

Hello everyone!  Happy humpty-dumpty day!   How’s your week going to far?  Me, I’m back into the swing of things….it’s a busy busy time of the year when classes start back up and all the students move back to campus.  There’s a lot of planning and prepping that get done in this last week before class.  I can now say, “summer is officially over”.  It absolutely flew by!  It sure was a fun one though. =)

I know I mentioned something about a front porch/deck quite awhile ago and never really followed through with the end of the blog post….anyone recall that?  Let’s hope not because I hate to leave things unfinished but I think it slipped my mind to finish the post then I traveled (did I mentioned that I had the amazing opportunity to teach a two week class in Taos, New Mexico???  It’s a really fun place if you get the chance to visit.) Anyways, today I’m going to discuss my next big purchase – a front porch with stairs that are actually code compliant.  The stairs I have now are those metal pull out RV stairs and definitely not code compliant.

 

these are, of course,attached to the house!

Tiny House Trend

Hello friends!  TGIF!  It’s FRIDAY! woohoo!  Do you have a fun weekend planned?  I hope so!

Today I’m going to share another article I read about tiny houses just being another fad or trend or will they actually be around for awhile?  Those of you that know me personally know how trendy I am. =)  (that was sarcasm for those that don’t know me).  Anyway, bad jokes aside, read here and see for yourself.

Tiny House Hotels

Hello!!!  Happy happy hump day!  How’s your week going so far?  I hope it’s going good!  So I mentioned the other day (it was actually last Friday) about the Pacific Northwest being amazing because they embrace tiny house and alternative living situations.  Well, this statement is still true BUT I want to add some other locations to that list BECAUSE I was on Tumbleweed Tiny House company’s website and found other locations all throughout the US that have tiny house communities set up as hotels….

TGIF!  Woohoo!  Fun plans for the weekend???  Me, I’m just trying to stay cool.  Is anyone else ready for Fall?  Anyways, as you all know – or if you are just stopping in – I LOVE the Pacific Northwest.  Not only is this part of the country absolutely beautiful because of the AMAZING (most of the time) weather but it has so many fun outdoor activities that you can ski in the morning and surf in the afternoon then stop by a locally sourced and organic brewery that also composts and recycles as a practice.   Win, Win, Win in my books!  I was fortunate to live in the area for 3 years and have many friends still located there so I get the opportunity to visit/stay quite often.  What does that have to do with tiny houses???  Well….

Back in action!

Hello friends!  How are you all doing?  Sorry for my absence last week.  I’ve been busy busy with work but am now back at it!  =)

Today’s topic is the Tiny House Jamboree!  I mentioned it a few weeks ago that the date and location changed and I got an e-mail yesterday with the updated information.  If you don’t remember, I went to this conference last August in Colorado Springs and had a fabulous time.  While it’s more for those in the planning or building phase it was still a great experience for me.  In fact, any time someone calls or writes me because they are interested in tiny houses I tell them to go…it was THAT good.  Honestly, for the $50 cover charge you got to listen to 3 days worth of seminars on all topics tiny house and the lifestyle to touring 50 tiny houses. =)  You can read about my experience last year here and here.

Tiny House Tailgate is famous!

Hello, hello!  Happy Monday!  How was your weekend?  did you do anything fun and exciting?  This is going to be a short post but I wanted to share this video of the Tiny House tailgate that I saw last week.  As I’ve mentioned a few times on here, I like a few tiny house groups on facebook…well, this weekend, the video below popped up!  You can buy it if you choose….there is a sleeping loft, a full bathroom, and this awesome patio area. =)

 

Tailgating Tiny

TGIF!  What a week!  Did it fly by or what?  Guess it’s that time of year where everything seems to be in overdrive. It’s ok with me, just means we’re one more week closer to summer! =)

So, there is another tiny house in the town I’m currently living in!  Well, it’s maybe not an exact tiny house for someone to live in BUT instead, it’s used as a tailgate for football games!  Let me explain.

Earth Day Texas

Hello hello!  How’s your week going so far?  I saw an advertisement for Earth Day Texas, which I won’t lie, doesn’t sound tiny house related what so ever and they need to work on that name…but it appears to be a tiny house conference-esque type of event in Dallas, Texas this coming weekend.  I really enjoyed the Tiny House Jamboree I attended last summer in Colorado Springs so I am curious about this one as it seems somewhat similar. You can read about it on this link.
