Throwback Thursday

IMG_4511

During the construction of Little Lou, it felt like everything was always a mess and disorganized. We were constantly shifting materials to make room or hauling stuff in and out of the carport. It was a struggle to keep everything in order. I can be a bit of a control freak so the whole process was an exercise in letting go. Constant deep breaths and reminders that I can’t control everything.

I cherished the moments (ugh, that sounds corny) when the house was clean and tidy. It was a moment to reassess and allowed me to actually envision the structure as a house rather than a construction site. When we started,Β I had an idea of a floor plan but didn’t have everything totally laid out.Β I had drawn out several designs but found that many of my ideas didn’t actually translate well to the space. Another reminder that I can’t control everything, I have to be flexible and willing to change my plans.

  1. Hi Chrissy,
    I’ve seen stories about you a couple times now and would love to learn more about your tiny house struggles in VT.
    I live in S. Burlington and would like to build a tiny house on a tumbleweed trailer in 5 years (when kids are out of house). My concern is finding a place to park it in the Burlington area. I don’t want to live in a very rural area. Would love to hear your thoughts.
    Thanks!
    Jane
