Tiny house for the homeless…

Hello and happy hump day!  How’s your week going so far?  Mine is good!  Busy getting back into the swing of things after spring break but other than that it’s going great.  As mentioned previously, I have a few articles on tiny houses that I found recently – which, of course, happen to be from Oregon. =)

The first article, which I think are the same structures that I saw when I was in Portland this winter (find the post here), discusses how tiny houses in people’s backyards can help with the homeless issue.  If you didn’t know, Portland has a big homeless population, which is sad but honestly Oregon is such a great place to live with a somewhat mild climate that I don’t blame them for choosing Oregon.

Anyways…

Spring Break!

Hi and welcome back!  Can you guess where I was last week during spring break???

the famous carpet at the Portland airport.

It was a fun time and the weather held out and I only experienced 1 day of rain the whole week.  For Oregon, that is pretty darn good! =)  However, it is now back to reality and back to work.  Only 6 more weeks of class.

So during my time in Oregon (I also had a brief stay in Chicago for a conference) I discovered this little beauty…

Tiny house in Denver?

Hello and happy hump day!  So as we were exploring Denver this past weekend, we walked past a tiny house!  What?  In city limits you ask???  Yes… it was a juice bar!  I think this is becoming sort of a trend.  It’s really a fancy food truck that looks like a tiny house.  Actually, there’s one downtown where I’m currently located and used as a food truck.  Anyways, I thought this is an interesting concept.

Remember when…

TGIF!  Remember when I shared with you all photos of tiny houses in Portland, Oregon awhile back???  In case you forgot you can read it here  =)

Well, what do you know BUT there was an article on those houses in Portland Monthly. They are, in fact, built for the homeless!

Read the article here: Portland Monthly

(ps.  I finally figured out how to put text over the links and am all over it!)

Anyways, I hope you enjoy the article and have a fabulous weekend!!!  If your snowed in, stay warm (and know that I’m slightly jealous of you).

NPR & Tiny Homes!

Hello and happy Wednesday!  Depending on when you read this (morning or night) you could be starting the hump or almost over it. =) Either way, I’m glad your here!

Today’s post is kind of random and will be rather short BUT on my way into the gym this morning I heard a story on NPR about the Tiny Houses that were built for the West Virginia flood victims.

Worms… =)

TGIF!  Woohoo!  It’s Fri-YAY! =)  Hope you have fun plans this weekend.  I’ve gotta get in a semi-long training run in and catch up on some work.  (did I mention I’m running Austin Marathon in 3 week?) Other than that I plan to relax!  I need some down time after this busy busy week.

Today’s topic is on composting! =) Are you all as excited as I am??? I’m sure you are…and if not just roll with it today. =)

Another tiny house community!

Hello friends!  How’s this Wednesday treating you?  Are you back into your normal routine?  Some exciting news today that I want to share about the tiny house movement.  When you think of the tiny house movement you probably think people live in them in more progressive states such as California, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, etc.  However, I came across an article today about a tiny house village in OKLAHOMA!  What?  A very conservative state is building a planned tiny house community in Bartlesville, OK.  Yup, I had to look that up too. =)

Bartlesville, OK

Happy 2017!

Hello friends!  Welcome back!  Hope you had a great holiday and are gradually getting back into the swing of things.  My holidays were great and I still have a few weeks to get things sorted out before the start of the next semester.  =)

So, did you set a new years resolution???  If not – here’s an idea for you.  I’ve mentioned the Minimalist on here before but they have an interesting concept for the new year with everyone making resolutions and things…

Forever?

Hello!  Happy Hump Day!  I’ve kind of fallen off the everyday blogging thing.  Guess the holiday’s have caught up with me and it’s just slipped my mind. =)  However, I’m back at it again today and wanted to share an interesting article I found on facebook.  Ok, maybe I didn’t find it but someone in the Tiny House Community facebook page posted it.

It talked about how their tiny home wasn’t their forever home…and how that’s ok.
