TGIF!

Hello!!!  Week 1 is done!  In the books…only 15 more to go. ha! No, I’m not really counting down but it is kinda cool when you get to cross 1 week out of 15 off of the books. =)

Anyways, today is a short one because I have no updates for you all.  I tried to get a quote on the third porch this week and the guy is out at RV shows all week.  He said he would get it to me “soon”.  I thought “soon” would be by today but no such luck.

I guess I do have some new information to share…. remember how last year I had the big issue with finding insurance.  well, I’m kinda sorta in that boat again but not really.

Patio style….

hello and TGIF!  Woohoo it’s the weekend – well almost, right?! =)

Ok, I left off on Wednesday discussing my front deck/porch options and THINK I’m going with the larger one since I can put a chair up there.  I might actually sit in the chair then. ha!  I currently don’t because, 1 – it’s HOT and I sweat just sitting there and 2 – it just wasn’t nice to sit outside.  Perhaps now in my new location it would be nice to sit outside…..*insert daydreaming look*

Anyways, I’m looking at two difference companies.  I found three but don’t like the look of the one right from the get-go so it’s getting the boot.  Click below to view the photo:

Patio!

Hello everyone!  Happy humpty-dumpty day!   How’s your week going to far?  Me, I’m back into the swing of things….it’s a busy busy time of the year when classes start back up and all the students move back to campus.  There’s a lot of planning and prepping that get done in this last week before class.  I can now say, “summer is officially over”.  It absolutely flew by!  It sure was a fun one though. =)

I know I mentioned something about a front porch/deck quite awhile ago and never really followed through with the end of the blog post….anyone recall that?  Let’s hope not because I hate to leave things unfinished but I think it slipped my mind to finish the post then I traveled (did I mentioned that I had the amazing opportunity to teach a two week class in Taos, New Mexico???  It’s a really fun place if you get the chance to visit.) Anyways, today I’m going to discuss my next big purchase – a front porch with stairs that are actually code compliant.  The stairs I have now are those metal pull out RV stairs and definitely not code compliant.

 

these are, of course,attached to the house!

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.

The front door needs a make over to be more welcoming
