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!!!
This spot is right outside city limits – thus I won’t be breaking any city zoning issues. I would be in someone’s back/side yard with 4 other rental houses. These houses are permanent foundation houses so I would be the only tiny house but that also means no RV could come in and park right.in.front.of.me! ARG!
We’re working out the details and it’s not a fixed deal yet so I don’t want to share too much but I do want to state that things are looking up in the parking spot issue!!!
If this did go through I would ask again to my Crossfit friends on facebook if anyone had a tow company or a big truck (1 ton+) in which they could move my house for me. Of course I would pay or barter or whatever – and I’ll deal with that when it comes up – but I don’t think I’ll have any trouble finding anyone since a lot of people transport farm animals regularly and have big trucks and know how to haul big items. I would only be moving 5.5 miles, which sounds silly, but would greatly improve my quality of life so I think it’s worth it. PLUS, as mentioned before, it’s on wheels for a reason! =)
Stay tuned…also – I got my new toilet last night! I’ll post whenever I get it installed and how it’s going. (and yup, I just talked about my two most discussed topics in 1 post!)
