We are getting so close to finishing the house! Since my last post, we trimmed out the interior doorways, finished the quarter round on the floor, and installed shelves in the closets. The doorway trim was really the last major use of my pallet pieces...it's kind of sad actually. But they look great and … Continue reading Almost finished! …and what’s up with tiny house prices?
This is mostly going to be about the super awesome floor (because, well, it's super awesome). In all seriousness, let me backtrack for those not familiar with the master plan.

Last weekend the trailer came in! This was quite a pleasant surprise, considering I was expecting it to take 4 weeks. For a trailer it looks like a decent size, but seems quite small when you imagine it being a house. Now that it’s in, titled and registered, dad and I are going to find … Continue reading The trailer is in and pallets have met their match…
