It has begun! Yes, the building of my tiny house has started. This past couple of weeks have been very exciting for me. I bought tiny house plans in 2008 and attended a building workshop that summer in Seattle with the intention of beginning my build that fall in Anchorage, AK. I had gotten permission from my landlord to use the empty lot next to my rental house for the project and was searching for a trailer, then life took a turn and I was needed in Utah to care for my ailing mother.
Here it is five years later and just getting started again. My mother is doing well, relatively speaking, and we bought a little house, about 1000 square feet about a year ago in the city. I'm not really a city kid, so it hasn't been easy to adjust, but I'm thankful to be close to everything, doctor, grocery store, school, etc.
I decided it was time to revisit my tiny house plan and begin again. So last week I went over to the trailer store to price a trailer and I'll go back next week to order my trailer. In the meantime, I've purchased a few things. I got some redwood 2x4's really cheap as well as some other lumber (also really cheap). That is when I really started getting excited. I found some tools that were very inexpensive, so now I have all the tools I need. My double bubble foil came the other day and my flooring (that I'm also using for the inside walls and ceiling has arrived and I'll pick that up next week.
I also decided on a name for my little house. Ticklebelly Bungalow.
