Reaching out

floorplan-taperemovalThe layout is done and the tape has come off the floor. Next step, creating the blueprint to build off of.

From the beginning of this process I have never wanted to be the Building Foreman but I had to be the Architect! I love organizing space and making it work for me so this part of the journey had to be mine and mine alone. Originally I had a friend on board who was going to take over the construction side of things once I had the floor plan in place but life happened and that has changed. Thankfully there are hundreds of Tiny Home people out there so now I am on the search for my BluePrint person!

I have emailed these two guys …. so here’s hoping

4 walls completed. 1 step closer.

First there was the tape on the floor. I needed to sit in my space to be able to come up with the floor plan. This helped a lot and I think I will be able to move about with a fair amount of grace in my 130 square feet.

81 sq feet

The second step was to figure out what the actual measurements were going to be. I now have my rough outline completed, Thank You! grid paper.

The first page is the wall to your right once you have walk through the front door after that you are turning in a clockwise circle.

BRUCE AT HOME DEPOT!

I finally went to a Home Depot to look around and this was in the first aisle that I turned down. Bruce is my last name.

I really have no idea what I am doing right now in the sense of the construction part.  I own a glue gun and basic tools so I like that I am already a name in the world of construction!

Vroom Vroom …. Here I Come!

I have never been a lover of cars. Buy one and once its yours, a quarter of its value disappears within the first year?!? The ability to use it means you are tied to a volatile energy source that is often linked to wars and is terrible for the environment. It is an expensive monthly habit, that in a city like Toronto, causes more pain than gain. That said. I love my car rentals and auto share programs. Road trips are amazing and somethings you simply can’t carry on your bike.

One of my goals in life was to make it to 40 without owning a car and over the past 20 years I have made choices to protect that goal. I will be turning 40 in August and just bought my first car. I am a little early on the calendar but for me this is a victory and for the first time in my life I am super in love with a car. My car.  Check out number 9!

Meet the Arizona Corn Princesses

corn princesses-beforeThose girls just got a make over!

cornprincess2This is one of very few pieces I am taking up North to my little home.

Most of the art coming with me I have picked up in my travels and is often from various Indigenous cultures. Feels suiting.

 

The smallest travelling me, ever

Over the last 20 years I’ve been fortunate to see as much of the world as I have.

Most times when I travel, I shop. I’m a sucker for pretty things and love bringing art home from far away places.

The goal of my 14 day trip through Panama and Costa Rica was to bring home only memories and I am happy to report I did just that.

One small backpack, everything  was used, I stayed on budget and have nothing to declare. Mission accomplished.

Small space living here I come!
