Moving House

By , October 12, 2019

My boyfriend, Steven, and I moved our tiny house this week! This is a project we’ve been working on since July, with little success (see Tiny Adventures in Housing). To move it off the property it started on, we had to move it around a right angle corner and down a narrow, infrequently maintained dirt access road. The house had been stuck in one place for a month, while we tried to figure out how to fix our main mechanical issue.

Tiny Adventures in Housing

By , July 21, 2019

Life just took one of those unexpected but exciting new turns: I bought a tiny home on wheels!

My boyfriend and I have been looking at options for moving in together for a while now, and decided that buying was more cost effective than renting. When he found a tiny home listed for sale on line, advertised as move-in ready, we were hopeful but cautious (see A Tiny Home?). We arranged a visit to the building with the owner/builder and proceeded to speculate wildly about what living in it would be like if it did turn out to be what we wanted. We invited Mom to come with us as someone with more experience buying a house. Her insights and knowledge of where to look for problems was much appreciated.
