Closet Doors

Well we finally managed to find the time to work on a few projects around the house, and now I have some lovely closet doors on my coat closet :o) They are made of clear cedar to match the walls with fabric insets to match the curtains. I wanted something that would still allow airflow into the closet in case we put away anything damp.
Also, the trailer frame we special ordered for the next home is here! We're busy planning out the next tiny house, and hope to start building sometime in March if the weather cooporates for a few days at a time. I would love to get it completed by mid July, but we'll see how everything goes. I hear I'm not supposed to count my chickens before they hatch :o)
I'm getting excited to start on the next home though, I have new ideas and plans that have been rolling around in my head and it will be fun to see those plans come to fruition.

And Life Catches Up To Us All

Nothing new to report on the tiny house front, other than that the trailer we ordered to build the next tiny house is finally finished and we have picked it up :o)
We hope to start building the next tiny home once the weather starts to clear for a few days at a time so that we can get it dried in and don't have to deal with that massive tarp again (that was a HUGE pain).

Other than that, we've been very busy planning out our garden for this coming Spring, and trying to get all of the planting beds ready to go (compost, amendments, etc). Our goal is to grow most of our own food this year and be as self-sufficient as possible.
It seems that everything always comes to a head this time of year and we feel as though we are running in 10 directions at the same time, but it's all got to get done, so I guess one way or another, it will have to happen :o)
Plus, it's always much easier to take your time finishing up the details once you're already living in your home, it seems that time has a way of slipping away sometimes when you're juggling multiple things at one time.

I hope you are all having a wonderful 2011!

Well, it's not tiny house related, but I am certainly excited!
We were able to pick up a wood fired cedar soaking tub for a good deal on Craigslist and have been enjoying the wonderful wam water in our below freezing temps at night :o)
