So here is a series of pictures of the garden transformation! it started out just grass and we built it up and are planting everything we can think of! yay! It has been so much fun. We either had most of our resources donated to us or found in the forest. Making trellises is fun. I’ll post more pictures when it is all full of green! The house is doing great, just gets muddy really fast when I garden and go in and out all the time. Our neighbor housemates and friends also help out with the garden. It’s kinda a small community project in a way. It’s so much fun playing in the stinky soil with people. Yuri doesn’t really like getting dirt on him, so he’s been doing other projects. He’s built some fences and tables and he’s making a truck bed slider for his tools. it’s very interesting. I’ll post some pictures when he is done!
Hey ya’ll! So sorry it took me so long to write any updates. I have been doing a lot of projects. Like chickens! We built a small shed and nesting boxes and stuff and put up lots of fencing and now I have 5 hens! They are fantastic! Next, we got a tiny house cat! His name is Tommy. He is not tiny. We built pathways on the walls for him to walk up to both lofts. He loves sitting in the sun loft and watching people come home. He is adorable. This property is so amazing, we love it more and more as the seasons change out of the rainy winter to the early sunny spring. I am in such a homesteading mood and we are planning out our garden space now! So much! It is very exciting. The right property allows us to live the lifestyle we love a lot more. I am so happy we don’t live in a cul-de-sac anymore. Yay outdoors and forest foraging and gardens and fresh eggs everyday! So grateful to live in such an abundant area. PNW love.
Yay! Yum! Woohoo! So here is the new kitchen. We decided to get a nice new toaster oven so I can bake stuff in there like nachos and cake and frittatas and stuff. It’s awesome! So you can see Yuri also made the spice rack with pot hangers and the shelves and cup hangers. I think that spice rack made the kitchen feel complete finally. It’s so great. I love the darker colored wood. He got scrap pieces from a friend and transformed it. Yay!
Hey y’all! We’ve been busy doing projects and going on trips and having a great summer! Yuri made a beautiful desk with a found metal frame and some gorgeous wood he hand-dyed. He also made a spice rack and pot holder for the kitchen and he made a “coffee table” for the corner spot where we put all of our special trinkets and collections. We also put up some more invisible book shelves! I love them. Here’s a picture of the comfy corner of the house! Let us know what you think! Do you want any close up pictures of anything in particular?
We just moved from our first spot (in a driveway in a cul-de-sac) to the new spot! (Surrounded by trees and grass and garden space and birds! Yippee!) It has taken a bit longer to level the house on the wavy ground but it is almost set! The inside is a wreck though. We took everything off the walls and such to move and now we are very slowly putting things back together. I think over the years we will figure out ways to keep our things in place when we move so we don’t have to pack anything… We are doing some improvements though so stay alert for more pictures! :)
Hey everyone, This is Yuri :). I wanted to say thank you to everyone who has taken the time to check out the blog and comment or ask questions. It means so much to me when I check the site and see visitors and or new thoughts. I have done my best to answer questions anyone may have, and share the pictures people have asked for, but if I missed something (or more likely forgot to respond) please send us another question. I answer a lot of questions in person from visitors or friends and then think I answer your questions, even if I did not. Victoria and I hope everyone is well and to hear from you soon.
p.s We just got back from a wonderful trip. It was nice to get out of the small house and lay in a bed that didn’t require a ladder to get to, but man oh man I sure missed this little home.
We successfully had our first hosted dinner in the tiny house! (and I forgot to take pictures..) cooked some delicious tacos! spiced beans, grilled onions and peppers, mushrooms with garlic, lime guacamole, spiced steak, and steamed corn tortillas! HA! Maybe this blog will turn into my cooking blog..jk! But really I should have taken pictures of the kitchen in action! I could have taken pictures of the dishes….
but yeah the point of this post is to say that we can easily and comfortably have guests over! we could probably do 2 more people with our current set up, and maybe a few more if we had extra seats! wow! I’m also realizing how many more kitchen utensils I need! Next time I will take pictures of the lovely food and mess we make and all of us squished together eating tacos :D

iTunes – stream it from the site or app of your choice. I have listened to almost every episode more than once. It is a genuine beautifully authentic and unpolished resource if you are serious about a tiny house.
The guests they have had on are really a “who’s who” of tiny housers.

The weather here is teasing us that spring is coming! one day it’s warm and sunny, the next it’s 32 degrees and raining and windy all day… well we have a pretty handy heater for those days. It works really well. Holmes infrared heater….I don’t know much else about it I guess. It feels like I’m sitting next to a fireplace. cozy. :) BUT it will sure be nice when it’s warm enough to put it away!
