These past couple of weeks have been spent with Jake and I trying to get as much as possible done before the trailer was ready to be picked up in Florida, yes you read that right FLORIDA.
Bless my husband, because that wonderful man had to fly to Montana for an interview and after a difficult/delayed trip home at 2:30am he and his dad began the drive from Pittsburgh airport to Florida to pick up the foundation for our tiny house. Which by the way they did in ~1 day because Jake had to be back to work..shew.
While this was happening I was left home to man the home front. One of the weekend nights Jake was gone my mom randomly text me to see if I needed help packing and decided to come down for the night. Thank goodness she did, because not only did she help me downsize my clothes to fit into the tiny house, she also helped me save the building supplies and a chicken from the flooding that occurred that night!
After that fiasco and Jake finally made it back we didn’t waste any time. We put the insulation into the trailer for the floor. Jake’s parents came over and we got the trailer moved to the build site on the driveway in front of the house. Then Jake and his dad had to level the trailer to to prep for building which was to begin the next day (TODAY!).
As I type this sitting in Jake’s parents kitchen (where I have internet and a washer–> 2 things we WILL have in the tiny house that we do not have now!) Jake, his dad, my dad, and my dad’s friend Paul are starting to build OUR TINY HOUSE! The construction has officially begun!
