Moving Day

Today is moving day.
I had been parked on my Uncle Tom's property, which had low-hanging utility wires across the driveway. To get out, I needed to enlist some help. My mother came along with a camera and took many, many more pictures than I ever do.



Many, many, MANY more...Collapse )

Land!

I have land now!

New Ceiling Fan

Wow, it's almost been 2 months. Sorry, peeps, I guess I've been busy. Well, that and I was kinda hoping I'd be on my own land by now. I'm not yet, but there's been some positive news on that front. I don't want to jinx anything, though, so I'm going to wait a few days before posting on that. Instead, I'm going to give y'all some pics of my new ceiling fan.



It's not much, but it's something.Collapse )

The Hunt for Land, Part 2

So yeah, no land. Seems the township supervisor wasn't willing to work with me. It also seems like I'm going to have to look outside of this county to find an area that will. I'm looking at the next county over in the hopes of finding something close to where I am now. In the meantime, I've got a couple of pictures.

The Hunt for Land, Part 1

So, I'm at the point now which I'm sure all tiny house hopefuls dread - the hunt for land. More specifically, the hunt for township approval. I've found some land that I like the looks of - still in the same county, secluded, lots of mature trees, and 1.5 acres for a good price. It's a good 20 minutes away from any big settlements, but there's a small town center just around the corner. The problem is getting approval to live there.



Looks like I have to break out my hoop-jumping boots!Collapse )

THOU SHALT NOT STEAL!

Okay, I've been dealing a frustrating individual lately, and since this is MY LiveJournal, I'm going to take this opportunity to vent about it. It is also directly tied to this journal and to tiny houses, so I feel it's appropriate to put it here, too.

In the last couple of years, I've had a couple of requests from people to "share" the Fencl plans with them. I usually respectfully decline and point them to Tumbleweed's site, showing them where they can buy their own plans. Most of the time, that ends the conversation. Lately, though, in this thread, I've been having a person become quite insistent that I "share."

Let me say this loud and clear: When you ask me to give you my copies of the Fencl plans, you are asking me to steal.

I'm going to put the rest of this behind a cut before it gets too long.Collapse )

Promised Post

I am home from work, if only temporarily. I promised you all some pictures and a video, and I am here to deliver them!



As always, they're here behind the cut.Collapse )

Caught Up

Okay, I THINK I've finally gotten around to responding to all of the questions. *phew* Fortunately, we had a couple of unexpected days off at work; otherwise, I never would have been able to tackle them all. Once again, thanks to everyone who commented! Everyone was just so supportive!

Unless some unforeseen problems arise, I should be home in 2 or 3 days. I won't be home for long, since we'll still have some work to do out here, but I'll do my best to post some pictures or a video or something for y'all. Thanks again, everyone!

Wow... Just... wow...
Okay, so I thought I got a bit of a bump when Tumbleweed mentioned me on their site, but that was BEFORE their email newsletter hit. I just logged on to find 62 comments waiting for a response. 62! And an additional 5,000 YouTube views! My goodness...
Everyone! I want to respond to you all, I do! However, I just, JUST left for 2 weeks for work! The shifts are long night shifts and the labor is taxing, so when I'm not working, I'll be sleeping or eating. I don't currently have time to respond! I want to reply, I really do!
No, scratch that... I WILL reply! It... just might take me a couple of weeks. But I WILL.

Thank you EVERYone for stopping by!
I promise more pictures and videos once I get back!

EDIT: I just wanted to let people know that comment screening is now "off." It's been on because of the spam that I was getting in my comments from European escort services. However, given the amount of comments in the last couple of days and the fact that I'm unable to address them all immediately, I've turned screening off. Posts should show up immediately now, folks... and if anyone has a quick answer to anyone else's question, feel free to help each other out!

EDIT 2: Just updated with the number of YouTube hits. I need to get off the Internet and go to sleep! I've been up 27 hours in a row now, and this is my first full trip on this job, so I don't want to blow it!

Hey, look! I'm famous! Thanks, Tumbleweed, for featuring me in your article! For those of you who found me through those links, most of the videos mentioned can be found in the three or four entries prior to this one. For those who're specifically looking for the post on my dog, Barney, I think this link is the "must read" post he's referring to. Thanks, everyone, for stopping by!
