So, I decided

Life is just busy!  I feel like I always make excuses on why I have been so pokey building my house (2 jobs, broken back blah blah blah!) ;-), I’ve decided life is just busy!  This IS what life is all about, it’s not hurrying to the finish line, it’s about enjoying every day!  I SO wish I had more time to work but it’s pretty awesome that I don’t too… it means I have lots of fun stuff going on.  I have a date tomorrow, a party the next day then I get to go to ANOTHER hockey game and have an awesome time with Carissa, I just had a girls night with friends, celebrated a big achievement that my brother had with my whole family (he took us to dinner) and I co-hosted a tiny house chat, this is all inside of a week and on top of my two [most amazing] day jobs, one of which we just won two exciting projects at, that is all pretty damn awesome!  Not a bad week :).  None of that will be overshadowed by my ‘not getting to work on my house this week’.  It has taken me far to long to realize but my life is pretty stinking cool!  I just thought you should know :).

For those of you who haven’t seen it I also added a new menu item HERE which will evolve but is a slideshow of all the major progress made to date [it’s located on the left hand side for future reference].  In one post you can see the start of my build to the current date and all the major milestones in between.

I want to just say thank you to everyone who has followed along and supported this crazy dream of mine!  I really appreciate you.

I am an artist, a steward, a minimalist at heart... I love being out in the sunshine... I love animals of nearly every kind, at least the furry ones, I am trying to be a gardener... I believe people are good at the core but are also capable of very bad things when they aren't intentional about their actions... I love my family, my passions and my life... I am just me :)


  1. I’m so inspired by your progress. Someday, I hope to build a tiny house too. So far, I haven’t found anyone in my family that believes in my dream. But, I believe…..and that’s all that matters. 😉

    1. That IS what matters! There are more and more people who have been very successful with their tiny house, all in good time! I’m glad you like my page, thanks for the kind words!

  2. It’s certainly been fun to watch your progress. Even with the interuptions… Looking forward to seeing the move in photos…

  3. Hey Macy-

    I personally feel that you owe no one an explanation, and that there is no time frame expectation. Impressive that you are doing it at all and it will be done at the right time for you. Just like “You Can’t Hurry Love,” you can’t hurry Tiny Houses!

    BTW- if you are comparing your own experience to other builders, just remember that many of them have 20-30 years experience!

    Sorry I missed your live chat. I was in class…

    1. I don’t answer to anyone but myself… but I can be pretty hard on myself :). I think I reached a point I can stop doing that as much. Sometimes it’s hard to believe but there IS more to life than tiny houses! 🙂 No worries on the chat, maybe next time! Yeah for classes!
