TGIF! Hope you all have fun plans for this last weekend in July! Can you believe it’s almost August already? Where did summer go? I’m very fortunate that I have a job in which I can be located anywhere during the summer months to work. It’s taken me quite awhile to get to this point and I don’t take it for granted. Luckily, I have been enjoying summer back in the Pacific Northwest where composting is common, mountains are high, and supporting local (whether that is food OR beverage) is the normal. It’s been a great summer and like all good things, it must come to an end. I would say one of the most frequently asked questions is, “Did you bring your tiny house?” and the answer is, unfortunately, no. Let me explain….
Welcome back! Today I want to talk about some ideas I have for the front door of my tiny house. I’m currently using the trailer supplied retractable RV style stairs. While these are functional I would like a deck area immediately upon exiting the front door to utilize the exterior space better and make it more welcoming. I would also like a covered area over and around the door to store shoes so that I don’t track dirt into the house.
Well, shipping took about 2 times as long as I was quoted as the truck kept breaking down. Even though I told the shippers my house weighs in around 15,000 (!) pounds, I don’t think they really knew what to expect. I even sent pictures of other similar tiny houses…however, they FINALLY made it and I can now move in!!!
