So we have turned in our keys and all moved in to the tiny house. I can’t say enough of how much I love this place. Now I need to finish unpacking because this place looks like a storage unit. I don’t want to post any pictures until we are unpacked, it is pure chaos. We have new carpet, fresh paint and we have to be hands on in our life style. Nothing is fast or super easy and I like it. I like the process of it all and can’t wait until we get organized. Everyone loves the storage/entertainment thing I designed and it makes me want to design more ;). I am sending my father the plans for a couch I am designing, he will build it in FL then bring it up here. I am excited but it is hard to draw and design something that you see already built and 4 dimensional in your head; it hurts my heart to make it flat on paper 🙂
This place is the place I have been wanting for 2 and a half years, a place thats mine…and we don’t even own it. Knowing I designed the furniture and was apart of it all; Not just buying object. Creating life in what we will live with is amazing. I will be building a table or getting one and re-doing it soon, our table wasn’t working. Just one more opportunity to be fully involved in my own life. It is crazy to think about how uninvolved I used to be in my own life. In my food, clothes, belongings. Now I read every label, make sure my clothes are reused to help against the waist of making new, and building what I need and depending on myself and loved ones instead of a factory and people who I will never know. I am free from stuff and filled with love and joy in actually being involved in my life. I wash my dishes not a machine but sometimes my husband ;). I wash my clothes in a small electric washer that needs MY help and I cook my food. I pay close attention to what goes into my body. I am so glad to be apart of my life and not letting it just run on with out me contributing. What parts of your life do you just set a timer and walk away? Could you be more involved? Do you read what is in your food, you would be surprised how long the list is? Looking closer gives freedom.
