I've not done much blogging before but thought why not give it a go. Here is a story of our bumpy start into Tiny House Living.
We have now been living in our Tiny House since just before Xmas. We first approached a Tiny House company about building our home in August and in September the build was underway. We were renting at the time of it getting built and the builder had committed to have the house out in 3 weeks. We had organised to be out of our rental in 3 weeks, as our flatmate had just moved out, and paying for a whole house, and servicing a loan for a Tiny House was a bit much financially. 3 weeks came and our house wasn't ready, it was promised in another week. We managed to convince our awesome landlord (at the time) to let us stay fr another week. The week passed and our house still wasn't ready, and we were committed to leave by this time as they had new people coming in. We then moved into a hotel which was thankfully covered by the builders. We were in a state of limbo, and living out of our suitcases, with all our belongings tucked into a storage container. We didn't know how long we would be there for, and figured it would just be a week or maybe 2 at worst. 4 months past!
Our beautiful Tiny House arrived just before Xmas, and we were still so excited to see it and partially relieved because we were starting to think it wasn't coming. We had pretty much everything built with the company except for the stairs, flooring, and kitchen, as we wanted to complete some of the build ourselves.
The house arrived fairly late at night, I think around 10pmish and so naturally we stayed up until around 2am installing part of our Kitchen! Jake had put a single foam mattress up in the loft, and we grabbed a couple sleeping bags and camped out for the night outside Jake's work.
The next day we were able to complete more of the kitchen, and then we borrowed a ute to tow our new house to our land! Adventure as seen on youtube...
It was so nice to be out of that hotel, and instead of a view of concrete, we had the best view of lush green paddocks, trees and horses!
