Over four years ago I discovered Tiny Houses and fell in love with them. I have always been fascinated with alternative housing, from the time I was a boy I built countless forts in the woods. So we have arrived, I will be building my Tiny House starting in just a few short weeks!
I have no idea how long it is going to take me, but it will be a challenge for sure. To set the bar for you all, the biggest thing I have ever built has been a chicken coop. I have no finish carpentry experience or house building experience, but I have been researching vigorously, talking to a lot of people, and will have friends help out where they can.
Many of you might have remembered that not too long ago I thought building my Tiny House was going to be a dream differed for another year or so, but recently I received a sizable bump in income with my other job and things started to fall into place. It’s kind of crazy how everything just clicked all of a sudden. Within two weeks my income grew, I had a place to build the house, and the last few details clicked too. I then found myself sitting here asking myself, “is there anything holding me back from doing this?” The answer was no, I have arrived at the edge and all I had to do was take the plunge.
The land that I will be building on (on a trailer that is) is 2 acres right on the lake here in Charlotte, NC. I am currently house sitting for them so I am keeping an eye after it and mow the lawn.
Going forward I will be detailing all the steps of building, have videos, interviews, informational posts and once it is complete I will be opening it up to tours for those of you who are close by. Once I start doing these posts I will also have a new menu item that will easily categorize the building process for those who are building their own Tiny House.
