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!!!

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”.  =)

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.

Parking…take 3!

TGIF!  How are you all?!  Got fun weekend plans?  I’m volunteering and hopefully riding in a mountain (or more like trail) bike race this weekend.  I’m hoping we get a good turn out.

So, as you all know I live in the country and it takes about 20 minutes to drive into work.  I realize that compared to some folks 20 minutes is nothing but I like living within biking distance to work so that I can reduce my carbon footprint and pedal power everywhere.  It’s such a great stress reliever and I miss biking. =(  I’ve been on the hunt for a better parking spot pretty much since I got my tiny house.

Zoning…again

Hello, hello!  Welcome back!  Hope you had a great Monday.  I was at a conference so missed posting on here but no worries, I’m back to the regular schedule now. =)  Today’s topic is another one on this zoning issue.  I know I keep harping on it but as of now this has been the biggest hurdle in living tiny.  =(

Exciting news….maybe

Hello Hello!  I have some exciting news to share….I may have found a new parking spot! If things work out I wouldn’t be moving for a month or so but this parking spot is located right beside campus so I can walk or ride my bike to work and it’s an easy peasy bike ride downtown plus I’d be close to grocery stores and amenities.  Since I HATE my commute right now this is a win-win in my book and exactly what I want out of the tiny house movement.  However, there is a downside….

Update on Parking!

Yesterday, I contacted and met with someone who posted an RV parking spot on Craigslist.  He owns 10 acres of land just outside of city limits. He has it set up for 5 RV spots in the woods along a creek.  Currently, he has no tenants so I would/could be the first but it’s wooded, private, and exactly what I was thinking of when this whole concept of tiny houses developed.  He also screens the tenants so that I don’t have to worry about crazy neighbors. =) The only downside of this property is that it is far from town and I can no longer bike (it’s on a gravel road but the main road has a 65 mph speed limit!) but it’s better than living in an RV park.  In this situation, I would pay a minimal monthly fee (rent) for parking and all utilities besides electric and wifi. Unless anything comes up in the next month, this will be the spot.
