On this "foundation" I will build my home

Probably the most expensive thing we've spent money on, but all the most important since this is the foundation for our home.

We got this awesome trailer from Seattle Tiny Homes - the trailer is designed specifically for building a tiny house. It has insulation and subflooring already installed into the bed of the trailer, so we're ready to build right on top of it.

Seattle Tiny Homes is a GREAT resource if you're pursuing a tiny house. Their services range from just a design, just a trailer, or the fully built home for you. Lead Designer, Sharon, and Master Carpenter, Ben, are wonderful people. Patient, kind, and very generous with their time and wisdom.

Check out their website, and pics of our trailer below.

I'm so sick of my computer

I've been working on these building/design plans for the past few months. They are still not done, but it's time to stop thinking and start building! Regardless of how "imperfect" these plans are, I'm still pretty dang proud of them.

Shout out to SketchUp, the free software program I used to create these!

Feel free to use them if you're building your own home :)

Our first pickup

We've been proud owners of a Ford Ranger for 1 month now and it is AWESOME! We love our Honda Fit, but this pickup has already been used to haul several loads of windows, flooring, and lumber (most of which was free/cheap). Too bad Ford discontinued this model...
