Coming into reality.

Our little house finally feels like it's becoming a reality. For so long I've been feeling like this project will never end, and the idea of living in our tiny house was a long-away fantasy.

Today James and I visited Uncle Bub and the tiny house. On the way up, we stopped at Home Depot to pick up a few things, sinks & faucets, etc…

When we arrived, we were SO thrilled with what we saw. I'm just incredibly happy with how it's turning out. The flooring is in, and most of the interior walls are up, the lofts are in and the shower is in place.

Here are some photos:

James and I are standing below our bedroom. There will be a wall put below this loft, coming out from the wall behind us and dividing the area into 2 offices. My office will be on the left (the side James is standing on), and his will be on the right. I love the height of the ceiling. It really doesn't seem as low as I was concerned that it might.

The plumbing coming into the kitchen for the sink.

The same loft as shown above, minus the people.

James is standing in the shower, poking his head through where the bathroom door will be. The bathroom wall is not completed yet. but the shower wall is done because plumbing was run into that wall. Kevin is reading about cabinets and is standing where the kitchen sink will soon be.

The oak floor, and the knotty pine wall. I really love the similarities and differences between these two wood types. They seem perfect together.

We picked out cabinets for our kitchen and a slate-colored laminate counter top. Bub will be working on getting those in. Our job for this next week is to finish getting the lighting fixtures that we want in the loft, bathroom and below the upper kitchen cabinets.

I'm beginning to see that light that I've believed is at the end of the tunnel.


  1. Your place looks fantastic so far! I can't wait to see it finished.
