November 2012 Tiny Home Update
We’ve had about 15 requests to post updated photos of our tiny home in the last few days. Why all the buzz??? We moved in! Here are some photos of our recent progress, the move, and us getting all settled in. Enjoy!
Erin taking a break in the loft
The upper and lower kitchen cabinets all made and waiting to be installed
Construction mayhem– it always gets worse before it gets better, right?
Dondi getting some help installing the solar panels. One down, five panels to go. . .
Dondi installing the Formica on the counter tops
Batteries, water tank, solar inverter, hot water heater, and the other workings of an off-grid home
The day we declared our tiny home “done enough” to move in
Our tiny home “Soleil” is on the move. . .
On the 5 mile journey to its new home, our little house lost only one side light. . . I guess that is to be expected when you try to pull a 29 foot, 8 1/2 foot wide house through a 10 foot gate =)
Dondi leveling the tiny house with cinder blocks and trailer jacks
Yes, the day we moved our little house we got about 2 inches of snow– good timing I guess!?!
Dondi’s creative packing strategy. . . let’s see how few loads we can take to move our stuff (we didn’t lose anything, I guess that counts for something??)
Mostly moved into the kitchen!
Another kitchen shot. . . drawer fronts and doors to come (sometime soon I hope)
If you’re wondering where we put all the extra “stuff”. . . its right there in the corner.
Dondi sitting at his new desk trying to get some work done
Cute little closet. . . fortunately we have quite a bit of drawer space for clothes underneath the stairs
Dondi got the water hooked up tonight and he took a real hot shower in our tiny home, that was an exciting moment! I’ve been showering at the gym. . . =)
We’re still trying to figure out the composting toilet but its working pretty well! One sacrifice of living in an off-the-grid 198 square foot house. . . no flushing toilet!
Our first dinner in our tiny home Soleil (that’s the name we gave it since its powered by the sun)!
So, we are officially moved in but have quite a lot of work left to do. We’ll send more updates and photos soon!
Thanks for reading our blog– we love to read your comments!
