A Tiny House that is truly a home. Just three short years ago we started building our tiny house on one of our 28ft @tinyhousetrailers. It's hard to believe how much time has flown and how big and awesome the tiny house movement has become. 2017 was a huge year for the tiny houses and we built over 400 tiny house trailers for DIYs all across the country. What does 2018 have in store? Are you planning on starting your tiny house journey this coming year? Fall and winter has proven to be the best time to start by preparing and getting your trailer on order before the spring rush is upon us. Go to www.TinyHouseBasics.com and we will help you every step of the way!
Heading into the first week of being 26. Cheers to this guy for making it the best celebration I could’ve asked for. ❤️
26 is just a number and honestly I don’t think it’s all too exciting. Just a fresh set of 365 days to pursue a passion, make dreams a reality, and wake up each day with purpose. I also thought of some other numbers that were pretty crazy. 26 to me means..
- a decade of practicing yoga
- 3 years since I met this guy
- 8 months of tiny home living
- 2 years of plant based (mostly)
- 1.5 years of loving Oliver
- 12 months of no haircuts
- 2 years since I’ve lived abroad
- 19 months of leading a team of coaches and being surrounded by a community that encourages me daily.
- and a FULL 26 years of being surrounded by the best Jesus centered family that shreds it on the ski hill 🎿 I could ever ask for.
But see? They’re just numbers ✨🌙 #TeamRootToRise
Happenings of the last week or so:
- We parked Bertha in our friend's back yard and successfully disassembled her entire front axle to begin refurbishing and replacing the moving parts. We anticipate Bertha being here until December.
- I learned how to use a sewing machine and completely redecorated Bertha's insides.
- I tried acupuncture and cupping for the first time and really really loved it.
- Keith cut all of his hair off.
- I cut some of my hair off.
- I took a lot of naps and read a lot of books and listened to a lot of Neil Young whilst sitting in my dear friend's bathtub.
I did all of this 3 by 5...a saying Keith and I use when we do something without a phone or a camera blocking our view...just a straight shot from our eyeballs to the world in front of us.
I needed a minute.
I wrote my last post with the intentions of being honest and vulnerable...but those intentions were twisted beyond recognition.
I didn't have the energy to defend a feeling I tried so hard to put into words. I didn't have the energy to carry the weight of other people's offense on top of the pile of things I'd been carrying for weeks.
It was too heavy. So I just let it fall.
You know Keith likes to joke that I've become an actual piece of this van...tethered to her with my own rusted bolts and intricate wiring just like any other working part. When she's broken down, I am too.
But you know the thing about wheels and axles and vans and people?
We're all fixable 😉
"We are officially back in our bright home on wheels and are settling in Pittsburgh for the holidays. Kev grew up here, and I moved here in high school. Which is where we met and started to date on the day of high school graduation. It’s a special place for us.💃🏻🕺🏼We are parked in Kevs parents driveway and had a crazy busy and magical weekend. We got to see so many people we love!! Now I’m just lying in bed willing myself to recover. I think today requires a lot more coffee. Happy Monday everyone! ❤️❤️❤️ Mandy"

Not my build but a house my dad is working on and his friend built this circular stairs. This stairs is to access a crawl space/attic. He said it was the tightest staircase he has ever done. My dad and his friend the things they do with wood would blow your mind. I can’t help but to brag about the craftsmen they are even though they are not ones to brag about themselves.
