Erin and Dondi’s Tiny Home
To fill you in. . . the first half of 2012 has been nothing short of interesting. Dondi is pretty excited about our tiny home. Its been in the works (the thought at least) since January and we’re finally in the construction phase of the project which started on June 2nd.
Cutting down the 50 foot trailer to 29 feet for the foundation of our “tiny home”.
Dondi welding the trailer.
Erin using the angle grinder to prep the trailer for a fresh coat of paint (this is after 8 hours. . .)
Framing out the floor joists after a fresh coat of paint. Almost ready for decking and then the big floor flip.
Dondi, Erin and Sarah (a friend in FoCo) flipping the 500+ pound floor. . . that was brilliant. Could have used some brute force for help. . . Dondi and 2 girls was just a bad idea but we figured it out.

Framing the wall with a very eery background. Day 2 of the High Park Fire about 15 miles west of Fort Collins that has now burned about 92 square miles of private land and national forest.
Erin scoping out the new composting toilet and 300 gallon water tank. This tiny home is going to be 100% off the grid.
Dondi cutting and laying out rafters for the roof of the tiny home.
Dondi framing out the rafters and contemplating on how to frame out the dormer (aka “bedroom”).

That is all for now. Hope you enjoyed the pics of our new “home”! Until next time, Erin & Dondi
