The porch deck is finished!! We need to add steps, railing and the roof. Tiny house living isn’t always easy and any additional space is precious. The porch will be screened in and we are going to put a daybed (or something similar) so we can sleep out on the porch on warm nights. It’s also going to be a great spot to drink coffee in the morning!
Exciting news on the homestead, our first eggs!! We’ve had our chickens since they were tiny and have waited 6 long months for eggs, so we were so happy about this little discovery in the coop today! Once the weather evens out we will be adding baby chicks and more egg laying hens to our flock.
Lots going on around here! We were sick in DC and spent a few days recuperating from a long trip + two sick kiddos. So posts have been slow since then. Anyway, on to the news! Jacob got a job working for the state and he starts training this week and has to leave for a month. Since jobs here are few and far between it is really good news!
More news! We are dismantling the treehouse and repurposing the wood into a larger 2 bedroom cabin which will be our permanent home. In the meantime we will be outfitting a tiny house/barn conversion! Since we weren’t expecting Jacob to leave for training we have to put the a-frame on hold and the tiny house made sense since we can finish it faster than starting a whole new house from scratch. It is built locally by Mennonites and scheduled to be delivered tomorrow. While it is tiny, it’s a whole lot more room than we have now and it has a loft! We are excited about this new project and will show the conversion process here with pics and video.
So, lots of changes, lots happening on the homestead. Thanks for reading!
