{TH2 – a new tiny house project!}

13 May

so – as it turns out, the owner/builder of my awesome tiny home has recently begun a new project for another soon-to-be tiny house dweller seeking a life less ordinary. of course, i asked if i could fotograph the process {and thank goodness my new “neighbour” is totally cool with that}.

i’ll do my best to update as time goes on… thankfully when i saw the big trailer pull up with this old unit on it, i was home and had free time, and i immediately ran to grab a camera.

this platform will be cut in half… and although the new tiny house {which we are referring to as “TH2”} will be half the size of this, it will still be twice the size of my home… so approximately 300-400 square feet.

i had never really fotographed the decay of a building before… and i gotta say, i kinda loved it. i can’t really explain why – but some of these images are so interesting to me… maybe the contrast of colour and exposed walls or floors… i don’t know. but there is something about “urban decay” i’ve always been somehow attracted to as an artist.

here are some recent fotos of the project from the beginning…

{tiny tuesday : a tour inside my tiny home}

15 Apr

minihome-1

it’s been far too long since i posted an update on my tiny home… like, four months too long! 😉

it really amazes me how much this “movement” has taken off!

imageimage

i’ve made quite a few changes around the tiny home, and i’m rather happy with the way things look, now… i feel like it’s finally coming together. my next project is working on the upstairs bedroom/loft area… i need to maximize space and upgrade the whole “college dorm room” feel currently happening… 😉

upon entering my tiny home, you first see my personalized dresser from the target closetmaid collection… it’s actually two pieces stacked on top of each other, and i’ve managed to fit most of my clothing inside! just to the left of the dresser, i keep the ladder to my loft propped against the wall. as you may recall, this attaches to that black beam for easy access to the loft, and quick removal when not in use!

on the right is the kitchen table, which is where my desk used to be.  i just felt like it opened up the house more with the setup this way… Continue reading

{tiny tuesday – happy holidays from the tiny mountain home}

10 Dec

i am way overdue for a tiny home update.  i have had a lot of personal things going on lately, so i haven’t been taking as many fotos or blogging as much.

plus, the holidays kind of make me want to hibernate… and so does my adorable tiny house… especially when i come home one day and it has been surprisingly decorated… like this :

tinytuesdayholiday-1

it’s like living in a snowglobe right now… for real.  especially with this fun little wordpress snow falling all over the blog 😉

{and i have the coolest landlords/neighbours ever!}

{whatever wednesday – my first guest post!}

13 Nov

hey friends!

tinyhome-1

how’s your week going so far?  mine has been nice, the weather has been so beautiful up here!

i’m so excited to share some news with you!  — a few weeks ago, i reached out to tinyhouseblog.com about doing a guest-post. i had been following tinyhouseblog for a while, since i knew i was going to be moving into this tiny home. i became somewhat obsessed with tiny living spaces… it’s so fascinating to me how many people live this lifestyle and it’s awesome to see what different people do with different living spaces.

i was so thrilled when kent agreed to let me write about my tiny home.  i have been eagerly waiting to see it posted, and today is the magic day!  i wanted to share the link, and share my pride a little 🙂  i will have another update on the tiny home very soon.. i’ve been making a few adjustments so it’s totally foto-ready!

thank you again for the opportunity, kent!

{tiny tuesday – details matter!}

22 Oct

sometimes when living and/or working in/with small spaces, practicality typically outweighs aesthetics…however, that is not the case in the amazing tiny home i live in.

🙂

tinyhouse-33

this week, i wanted to focus on some of the features that make this home extra cool and special.  the builder thought of everything to make it functional and practical while keeping the visual appeal as well as the modern-meets-mountain feel.

one of my favourite things in the kitchen is the sink! for one, i love a stainless steel sink. so easy to clean and just looks sharp, right?!  this one is complete with garbage disposal and stretchy-faucet hose thing.  i love those, too!

tinyhouse-31

and i love this second little sink to the left… so practical that it doubles as a colander! can also use it to dry dishes or rinse veggies prior to cooking. genius. Continue reading

{tiny tuesday – have you ever been THE FIRST at anything?!}

15 Oct

i have never been THE FIRST at anything… at least not to my knowledge…

i mean, i have lots of original photographs i’ve captured… many of which may be the “only” of their kind… but i’ve never really been the FIRST at anything i’ve done… until now.

i am the first and only person to live in this new mini home.  now, i’m not fortunate enough to own this lovely home, but i am the first person to officially reside in it – on gorgeous private property with a river in my backyard and endless hills surrounding every corner.  it feels pretty incredible to be the first person to live here.  i’m grateful to have met the builder last year… we remained in contact and he updated me on the home this summer, when it was just about complete.  everything sort of fell into place, guiding me to these hills and to this home.  i’m taking it all one day at a time and just soaking up each gloriously relaxing moment in my new environment… and one thing i love about living here – I SLEEP SO GREAT!

when i wrote about my visit in september was when i fell in love and knew i had to follow my heart to the rocky mountains…

here are some detail shots of some of my favourite features inside this amazing home.
