Hello and happy Tuesday! Did you have a great weekend?! I didn’t get a chance to ask you because I was celebrating yesterday. =) My weekend was…interesting. Let me explain. So it felt like winter again here (yay!) with the night time temps reaching down in the 20’s (ok, that only happened 1 night). I thought this would be the perfect time to try out the heat lamp idea – I also had just gotten the thermostat outlet.
Hello! Welcome back! Happy Monday and it’s my 1 year anniversary in my tiny house today! Woohoo! I should have a party to celebrate. =)
She looks so different without her skirting…
WOOHOO! It’s Friday! TGIF my friends! This seemed like an extremely busy week for me…anyone else?
Anyways, today’s post is short as I’m going to share with you my need for a new parking spot…. Continue reading TGIF
Hello! Happy Thursday! And yes, a new topic. =) I mentioned awhile ago that I got an instant pot around Thanksgiving as they were having that huge sale on Amazon.
This guy come in a 7 in 1 function 6 quart size or a 6 in 1 function 5 quart size. Being that it’s just me and to save space I got the 5 quart size. Which, to be honest is HUGE in my tiny house! I originally griped about how big it is, and while I still feel that way, I have changed my option of this cooking appliance as I use it all the time. On what, you ask?
Hello! Welcome back!
A few days ago I posted the idea about a heat lamp used for chicken coops….remember?
Well, I went to the local farm supply store (it happens to be 1 mile from my house and also where I go to fill my propane tanks) and discussed this with the folks there since someone where *hopefully* use these or at least are more familiar with them than me.
Hello! Happy Tuesday! As I mentioned previous, I had to get a new water tank. Look at this shiny new bad boy!
Hello and happy Monday!!! Welcome back! Did you have a great weekend? Mine was good. The weather was warm – in the 60’s so I got to do some outdoor projects that I needed to do. First one was winterizing my drain line. As I only have greywater – and with going to try another composting toilet will remain that way – the drain line isn’t the biggest issue if it freezes but it is a pain in the butt! If I’m home due to crappy icy weather then I want/need to get some things done such as laundry, washing dishes, etc. and with a frozen (which means stopped up) sewer line, doing those things just isn’t going to happen until the afternoon when the weather warms up to thaw the frozen line. So, I decided to winterize my sewer line! What does that mean, you ask?
Hello, hello and happy Fri-yay! Do you have any fun plans for this weekend??? Me, I’m just catching up and relaxing as we just finished the first week of the semester. 1 down, 14 to go! I really shouldn’t count like that…ha!
Today’s topic is a fun one…toilets! Remember (awhile back now) how I was unhappy with my composting toilet as it requires much more maintenance than the reviews/owner manual, smells (like dirt but a pretty strong odor), and attracts insects….
Well, I made a decision on what I’m going to replace it with…
Hello, hello! I know you all are anxiously awaiting what water heater options I have so I’ll just go right into it. =)
First option is to simply replace exactly what I have. An Eccotemp propane tankless hot water heater.
I know it works well for my application and, while I have to keep a 1400w space heater in the bike garage during winter – it’s energy efficient and I haven’t had any issues with it working other than this whole freeze thing. The plumbers will simply just take out the busted on and install this..boom – done. I looked into purchasing just the parts that are broken (the heating element) and the manufacture doesn’t sell a replacement for that part so that wasn’t an option. So this is option 1.
Welcome back and happy hump day! Hope your week is going well and your back into the swing of things. We’re just starting this semester so things are rolling right along.
As I left off yesterday, I was talking about my hot water heater.
