Tiny House turns 2 ! (And still isn’t finished)

Whatever!

But it is fabulous and cozy and highly livable, adding greatly to my quality of life, despite its incompleteness. 

So here’s a visual update.

Bees: apparently happy but still living in 1st box and not spreading out yet.  Opened them and checked on them without using smoke which made me happy.  Had to use  a little water however in a spray bottle:

They fly in with their saddle bags full of bright orange pollen.  Checked them out with magnifying glass and saw no mites, nor ants so apparently all is well. 

Birthday flowers from last year blooming twice as large this year.  Being a year older I need more flowers– right?  And in true permaculture stacking fashion they brighten my b-day AND provide food for the hive.

Hot as heck this summer so we turned tiny house into tiny pirate ship.  I can’t wait to keel haul someone! It will be a very dusty swim. If anyone has a skull and crossbones flag they aren’t using send it on.  I will fly the colors proudly and invite you to lunch in the garden.

My new tiny greenhouse to grow goodies for the chickens, the garden, and moi.

My first ever potato harvest.  Grew these because they sprouted in bag from store before I got to cook them. 

Waste not want not.  Especially at Whole Paycheck’s organic Yukon gold prices.  So I grew my own.

The chicken tractor– which gives the ladies some room to free range without immediate danger from the dozen or so predators all waiting for me to turn my back for a second. And keeps them from tearing up my garden.  Which they would love to do.

A couple of the ladies looking fat and sassy.: ( They are loving their dumpster dived organic produce from Shelton’s market –A

A chicken heaven of delectables that have improved their eggs and shells quickly.  )

The deck /living room looking less like the carpenter’s work room it has been for a year and more like a civilized space worthy of  guests.

And where did all those tools and materials go that were strewn about for so long?  In our new 3$ recycled shelves from Industrial re-use facility (AKA the dump)

We got some second hand paint for 1/2 price and spiffed it up.  Now weeez very organized. And yes that is plastic covered futon/couch/guest bed ala Italian grandparents style. Go ahead and laugh but when you come to visit and sleep over on the porch you will be happy we kept it clean for you by covering it with the giant tarp that was our roof before we got the tiny house covered all proper like.

      Thanks so much Scott. That means a lot to me. So kind! Do you have a tiny house in Fl? I would be interested in seeing your blog/photos if you do. We keep getting invited to move there and I’m just not sure I want to move that far away from my beloved bay area CA.

    Nice!

    Have you checked the bee larvae for mites? They are often easier to see there than on the adults.

  3. Terry says:

We have landed and after all the struggle, adventure, drama etc it all seems so worthwhile. We are now parked in a lovely and peaceful place just north of Santa Rosa. Bucolic bliss has become a reality. I got everything on my list: well water, garden, wildlife, quiet (can't even hear airplanes!) and lovely neighbors. Thanks to everyone for the prayers, help, moral support, and patience during this challenging project. About another year and we should be finished.... Ha : )
