Tiny House Life Update

When I first started this blog I always told myself I’d keep posting after we moved in. A lot of tiny house blogs seem to just diminish after their project is complete. I always wanted to hear what life was like and how the people were doing.

BUT I failed at my own promises. Tiny house life seems so exotic when you’re on the outside, but everyday life now just seems normal… and a little boring. It’s hard to think of anything to post. “I worked for 8 hours today, made dinner, read a book, and went to bed… all in a tiny house.” Boring, right?!!

However, I thought I would pop in and at least give a bit of an update of what we’ve been up to. Day to day life might seem pretty mundane, but there have been some pretty big changes. The most recent has been I put in my notice at my work, so pretty soon I will be free from the 9-5! Moving into our house was a BIG reason I was able to do this. We’ve been able to save more money and open up room in our budget for this to happen. YAY!!

Another wonderful thing that has happened recently was we were able to meet a few other tiny house folks in the area. We had never seen another tiny house in person and it was so cool to tour a few others. Probably not surprising, we have quite a bit in common. I have plans for a tiny house get together at our place soon.

As far as projects go, we haven’t accomplished a whole bunch. We were pretty burned out so are taking some time off. I’m guessing in the Spring, we’ll really work on completely finishing up the interior, which is mostly just some shelving and a bookcase. We did finish the doors for the lounge seating storage and I have sewed 3 more curtains for the windows. I snapped a quick pic this morning so you can see. This is a typical Saturday morning…

I’ve been thinking about how to do Christmas in the tiny house. This will be our first and we left all our decorations in storage. I’m thinking about some white lights and maybe some garland to give it a festive feel. Maybe some time on Pinterest is in order :)

Hope all is well with you! Happy belated Thanksgiving from us! S & B
