I have noticed over the past month or so I have been getting a little burned out with working on my tiny house. I think it really has been a combination of my time at work skyrocketing, a series of big set backs and less than favorable weather. Additionally I had been asked to bring my house to a particular event, which put a deadline on things for me, so it became more of a job, not something that I was enjoying.
I have had some big set backs. The biggest being my electrician was injured pretty seriously on another worksite the day before he was going to do my house. He will be fine, thank goodness, but it meant I had to restart the process of getting quotes and scheduling work, which set me back about 3 weeks.
Enjoyment of the building process was one of the things that I wanted to make sure was part of building my house. I wanted to enjoy the journey, to enjoy the realization of my dream, I wanted to take my time and have great posts for you all. So this week I made the decision to decline bringing my house to that event, which on one had I was disappointed about, on the other, and more importantly, I felt like I could now enjoy the process of building again. I felt a sense of relief when I made the decision and I think it was the right one to make.
So the moral of the story here is when you build your tiny house, or pursue any of your goals in life, make sure that you enjoy the journey, because it is often better than the destination. In the near future I will be doing some more house update posts, but here is a photo I took this past weekend.
