{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…

it’s a tiny tuesday update! 😀

i have made a lot of changes to my adorable tiny home, but i wanted to share these fotos so you can see the progression 🙂

{thirsty thursday – harmless harvest coconut water}

12 Dec

i heart coconut water… and not just after a good workout or to help cure a hangover {yep, it’s good for that!} although, coconut water will replenish you better than 10 gatorades {i don’t drink that stuff, but it’s fun to exaggerate sometimes} or a gallon of water alone.  seriously this stuff is amazing!  it’s almost identical to human plasma, and is extremely high in potassium and antioxidants.

there are lots of different coconut water brands out there… and many of them are good.

this one is THE BEST.

harmlessharvest-1

i mean, really… it’s THE best coconut water on the planet.  harmless harvest coconut water has figured out the best formula {and philosophy}… and can you just guess what it is?!  KEEP IT SIMPLE 🙂 i dig these guys and their minimalist approach to things.

it’s like sticking a straw straight into a coconut that has been gathered in southeast asia. 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-home tuesday : the interior}

17 Sep

last week i introduced you to the cutest tiny-home ever.

this delightful minimalist house isn’t quite complete – a few final touches are still in the works from the amazing builder… but as promised, here are some fotos of the interior.  and i will share more soon, and even more down the road… when it’s fully complete and decorated inside!

🙂

the front door opens into a small foyer with shelving to the left and a place to hang coats, etc.

{foto friday – minimalist lifestyle : the cutest tiny home ever.}

13 Sep

i love a minimalist lifestyle.

ever since i sold all my stuff and moved to NYC in 2008, the idea of a minimalist lifestyle started to appeal to me more and more.  as years have progressed, i’ve found myself actually downsizing even more.  it’s very liberating to be able to fit everything you own into a 5-piece suitcase set and the back of your subaru.

🙂

i’ll have a story to tell soon behind this little house… for now, i just want to share the fotos of where i stayed on vacation last weekend on the beautiful western slope of the rocky mountains. this home sits on private property with the roaring hills steps away, as its backyard.  i am not certain of the square footage, but it i’m guessing it’s around 300, including the loft.  the living space is maybe 200 square-feet?  but it is so well-designed, one still feels open within the space.  plus, all you have to do is open the door and you’re in the biggest open-space ever… 😀

minihome-1

i just fell in love with this place.

how could you not?!
