A Bittersweet Farewell

Well, the time has come for me to stop being in denial and announce that my tiny house has sold!  It left Newport Hardware on March 9th for its new home with some really great ladies up in PA.  I believe eventually it'll journey up to VT to add to their off-grid set-up. The selling … Continue reading A Bittersweet Farewell

Tiny Open House

The time has come! I am delighted to announce that the house is done enough to have folks come check it out.  Anyone who is willing to make the drive (short or long) can come see the house, ask questions, and enjoy some refreshments.  I know it'll be a very short tour, but it'll be … Continue reading Tiny Open House

Tiny House Tour

Dad and I took the house up to Manassas, VA last week. What a trip! We were interviewed by several reporters and had a blast letting everyone see it. With this media coverage came some interesting questions from commenters that I'd like to address. This might step on some toes, but here goes: My school … Continue reading Tiny House Tour
