It’s 2018 already? That means it’s time for my annual Tiny House Life Update!
Before I wrote this text, I refreshed my reminiscence on the place I used to be one yr in the past by studying last year’s Tiny House Life Update. And, um, it wasn’t fairly. I used to be going by means of a tough time, however quite a bit has modified since then.
First of all, 2016 was an actual crap of a yr. It kicked my butt. No, it didn’t simply kick my butt, I virtually misplaced my ass altogether! I went by means of numerous levels of melancholy (because of a breakup that a few of chances are you’ll keep in mind) that resulted in a scarcity of urge for food and common lethargicness. My boyfriend give up our life, which was unhappy sufficient, however when my caboose withered away, I assumed… sufficient is sufficient! It was time for me to select myself up and begin over.
In my 2017 new year update, I placed on my I-don’t-need-anyone’s-help-I’m-a-big-girl-pants and wrote about how I used to be going to beat all of it. I used to be going to seek out independence, reside alone, and handle the Tiny House all alone in 2017.
And (spoiler alert)… I did!
Something else occurred in 2017: I met somebody new. That’s proper, this loopy woman, dwelling in the woods together with her self-built Tiny House, truly discovered somebody who “gets me.” In reality, since assembly me, he’s gotten drunk on the Tiny House kool-aid. In October, he attended the Tiny House Jamboree with me, and in December he joined me on a 2-week street journey across the UK in a transformed campervan (one of many many trips I’ve taken this previous yr). At 6’5″ he couldn’t even stand contained in the van, however he was a trooper! We beloved it.
Side observe – why do I like tall males and small areas? My tastes are an oxymoron!
My Tiny House has been there for me, as regular, throughout each transition. She’s sheltered me once I felt lonely and allowed me to stay with out monetary burden. I’m paying my ex a month-to-month quantity for his half of the Tiny House costs, and (hopefully) quickly she’ll be utterly mine (financially talking). She is already the embodiment of me in so some ways, together with her quirky character that solely a handful of individuals might love.
My home is evolving, and so is my life. At the top of 2017, my boyfriend and I moved in collectively (gasp)! It was a troublesome determination, however I made a decision to maneuver into his home and to make use of my Tiny House as a part-time residence. A retreat. I typically miss her once I’m away, however she is ideal, and she or he is mine, and she or he all the time shall be.
When I’m touring the world or dwelling with my boyfriend in his 500 sq. foot mansion (double gasp!), my Tiny House is accessible to lease at Mt. Hood Village. That’s proper – you possibly can keep in the night time in my little dream residence! It made me too unhappy to see her sit empty, so I made a decision to open her tiny door for others to make use of and luxuriate in. My hope that is that the expertise will lead others to construct/buy Tiny Homes of their very own.
As my life continues to evolve, I do know my Tiny Home will develop and alter as nicely. Perhaps, at some point, I’ll transfer her in the yard and use her each day for writing and to bask in her common loveliness. Or perhaps I’ll place her on a mountain, and go to her for trip. Later on, my Tiny House is perhaps a visitor home, youngsters’s playroom, dorm room for a university scholar, or my yard granny pod (a time period I am keen on). I do know my residence and I’ll have extra adventures collectively, and, someday, she is going to outlive me. And her big journey with proceed with somebody new.
But let’s not get forward of ourselves, this Tiny House replace is for 2018!
2018 shall be an thrilling yr, with new various way of life articles, movies, and adventures across the globe. Some of those tales will probably be mine, and a few of them that includes different inspiring individuals and their innovating areas. I’d love to listen to from you – what would you wish to examine this yr?
I’ve (one other) announcement, however I’ll save that for an additional time. Stay tuned.
