Yet another post about parking…

Hi!  Happy Thursday!  How are you all doing today?  Getting ready for the weekend?  Me, I’m ready for it. =)

Today, I’m going to talk about parking spots yet again….so I’m discovering is that I talk about toilets and parking the most when living in a tiny house.  Never thought those two things would be the most discussed topics.  Hmmm….wonder what that means.  I know other tiny house dwellers struggle with the parking issue as well.  They might not bring it up as much as I do but it’s a real problem for anyone in a tiny house!  We want to live this lifestyle (each for various reasons) yet we all want to do it legally.  I haven’t seen a single post or discussion about how someone wants to “break the rules” and live illegally or fight when told to evacuate a parking spot. Most dwellers just suck it up and move after told by officials that they are illegal.  Guess that’s a plus with having a house on wheels….

I really want to avoid that yet live closer to town for various reasons as mentioned previously. And I think I found a spot!!!

Another reason for a new parking spot…

Hello!  How are you all today?  Happy Hump Day!  Today’s post is short as I’m still getting caught up with everything since I was out of town last weekend but I wanted to share yet another reason (as if I needed more) in which to find a new parking spot!

I live down a dirt road.  I probably have to travel 1 mile on this road but when it rains (which isn’t often) it turns into a mud pit.  I can not avoid, no matter how slow I drive, getting mud up to the windows of my car.  That is how much mud there is!  It’s crazy ridiculous and takes a few days for it to dry so I drive my car with mud on it for a week or so before I can wash it.  If I washed it right after the rain it would get muddy again and then I just wasted water on washing.  Anyways, that was a side rant as today I was going to share what happened on my ride home from work yesterday….

Parking yet again…

Happy hump day!  Woohoo!  Did you all have a great Valentines day?  Now, go out and buy all the discounted leftover chocolates. Actually, don’t do that as I want some left over for me! =)

So I posted in a private group of crossfit friends about wanting a new parking spot and someone had a lead!  I have a potential parking spot just outside of city limits.  This is not a done deal as this contact is verifying if they have a sewer/electric/water/etc for me but this gives me hope.  Keep your fingers cross my friends!  This is quite exciting for me!

I’m pretty busy these next few weekends – and have to find someone to haul my house – even if it’s just 5 miles down the road so I probably won’t be doing anything for a few weeks anyways.  Don’t worry, I’ll keep you all updated on the progress of “The Great Parking Debate”.  =)

 

Parking update

Happy Valentines Day!  How are you?  Do you have fun plans for tonight?  Me, uh, nope.  I most likely will go on the social run tonight and then home to dinner and cat cuddles.  I know how to get into the holiday spirit, huh?

Anyways, I’m starting to get serious about a new parking spot.  I called a small RV park that is 2 miles away from work (although I still can’t bike to campus due to the road this place is located on) it will tremendously cut down on my commute time.  I mentioned it before (you can read that post here) but never got a call back from the owner..until this weekend when I tried again.

New Landlord

Hello and happy Thursday!  It is just me or did this week fly by.  I mean fly.  Whew!

I guess I knew this for about a week or so now but I have a new landlord.  I think this is going to be a good thing…but only time will tell I suppose.  I’ve mentioned on here that I rent an RV parking spot (with RV hookups) on 10 acres of land outside of city limits.  So far, besides my new neighbors and a somewhat long commute – in my opinion, I haven’t had any issues.

Frustration take 2!

Happy Hump Day!  Hope your all doing well and having a great week so far.  Mine’s been busy busy busy as the new semester kicks off and I’m still figuring out my schedule.  It usually take a good month to get into the swing of it. =)

The past few days have felt more like spring than winter – which, I know, some of you would like – however, there was one day when the temps got below freezing one night.  This isn’t a problem now that I have my garage set up and water lines all figured out…or so I thought.

I awoke one day earlier this week to no water.  WHAT?!?!  How can I have no water when I have a (very expensive) automatic electric heated water line to prevent this exact thing? See the plugs going from the well & hose to the electric box behind?

Wanted: Parking spot in town for my THOW

Hello hello!  Welcome to another week!  Did you have a fun weekend?  Well, I hope you couldn’t tell but I spent my winter break in Oregon and returned back to my tiny house this past weekend.  Everything was a-ok upon my return…other than the fact that a huge RV parked RIGHT.BESIDE.ME! Of all the places on this land that I’m renting, it parked about 15 feet from my front door.  So, whenever I look out, all I see is the backside of an RV.  Real great…

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
