Tiny House Remodel

July 25, 2014 § 6 Comments

I have undergone a little bit of a tiny house remodel.  It’s been a long time coming, I have been needing to add a rail to my bed so that little miss Hazel didn’t take a digger.  About two weeks ago we were playing in the bed, I went and got a bowl of cereal, came back and she had moved like 3 feet!  My mind went ‘UH-OH! gotta get on that rail!’  So, away I went.  I was not convinced it was going to turn out well throughout the building process but I have to say, I am happy with how it turned out!  I actually like the looks of it and I like the feel of it!  It gives the bedroom a touch more privacy.  AND I love my new family photos!

  • My name is Macy, I started building my 196 square foot tiny home Dec 2011, in the process I met a boy, James. 18 months after starting my house we moved in and started our family which includes our daughter, Hazel and our Great Dane, Denver. This is where I talk about my experience with all of that :).

    This is an interesting book I've been digging into, sort of more 'intellectual' reasoning as to why having more choices in all aspects of life is making us a less happy society, great perspectives and interesting concepts.

  • Thriving Beyond Sustainability

    An uplifting read that focuses on the successes through history of sustainable practices in societies. I found this to be very refreshing, it didn't have such a 'dire' tone, more positive and encouraging.

  • The Backyard Homestead

    This is a great beginners book of an overall view for people just looking into the idea of homesteading. There is a lot of valuable information in here on veggies/livestock/land uses an sharing. It's a great pocket guide.
