Trailer Day! 

This morning we got the call that we’ve been patiently waiting the last 8 weeks for. Our trailer was ready!

With W in her car seat and Willie beside her, we hit the road. 

When we arrived at the dealership, J spotted our trailer straightaway. It was sitting so purty, just waiting to be taken home. 

Only a few signatures were needed and we were all set to go. We decided to order 4 stabilizer jacks before we left. They’ll be used in the four corners of the tiny home to help (you guessed it!) stabilize our tiny home once completed. We’ll be picking those up in a few weeks. 

J did fantastic as ever driving home. He’s had a lot of practice towing trailers and boats in the past, so towing our trailer was no big deal. He did mention though that it was the biggest one he’s towed yet!

Let the building commence!

Willie the Road Dog.

Until next time.


In Anticipation 

While J and I wait for our trailer to be completed, we are spending a lot of our time ordering our building materials. Our windows will be ready for pickup in a week or two and our new refrigerator will be delivered tomorrow. 

We finally made a decision sink-wise and settled on IKEA’s small farmhouse sink. In the meantime, we had fun testing out as many farmhouse sinks as humanly possible!

Way too big for a tiny house!

As worried as we were about Kitty and Tikka cohabiting peacefully in the tiny house, we were more worried about how they’d get along in the meantime in an 8×10′ bedroom. 

When we lived in the condo, Tikka’s domain was upstairs and Kitty ruled the roost downstairs. Even then with 1,000 square feet of space, we had cat fights daily. Needless to say, I was worried.

Much to our surprise, our two cats who couldn’t tolerate living together before, can live (somewhat) peacefully together now. Granted, we still get the occasional hissing and Kitty can get grumpy if Tikka gets a little too close, but I am relieved that I haven’t unknowingly gotten in the middle of a cat fight at night. 

“She’s behind me, isn’t she?”

W is at home here in the country more than ever. She can forever be found outside, discovering toads and lizards and playing in the mud. You know you made the right decision for your family when you see your children happy. 

Until next time.
