After 3 months of building, we have finally moved and moved in to our home. The past couple weeks have been the most intense with the end of our building window coming to a close. Even though we did not manage to complete all features in our home before the move, we are quite chuffed … Continue reading Christchurch or Bust
This week we were interview by Cherie from the Nelson Mail. So with out further ado, here is our article!
This last week has raced by and with our deadline for having the tiny house livable only a few weeks away, we are starting to feel the pressure. Over the last week we have moved our focus from the exterior of our little home to the interior. We have installed enough of the wall ply … Continue reading A Kitchen And Stairs
After a long break spent with family and friends, we are back at it with a vengeance. Progress since the last post has been slow but steady. Our spray foam insulation had a bit of a hiccup when a piece of the pump broke right before Christmas meaning it couldn't be finished until last weekend. The house … Continue reading Inching Along
We have accomplished more than we thought we would in a month by a long shot and are proud of our progress and humbled at the thought of what is to come.

The organization and the actual building of our tiny house could not have been possible without the help of a friends, family, and the community. It has been a hectic … Continue reading Stage One Complete
The last week has been one long blurred memory. The plan was to pick a good weather window and spend every waking hour getting the floor, walls, and roof up and weather tight before the next rain..... A big task to say the least so we enlisted some help. Stoph's father has helped by taking time … Continue reading Long Days and Late Nights
This Last Week It has been rainy with a chance of earthquakes and our thoughts go out to those most affected.

This Week This last week has been a very intense and exciting. We have made our colour steel roof with the help of our good friend Dustan. Stoph's folks drove down to Christchurch to help us with packing the trailer with our windows, roofing and a couple of our bikes to drive back up to Nelson for us. We then … Continue reading Finally, The Tiny House Build Begins
