I just gave myself a $2k/mo raise by paying our VERY LAST MORTGAGE PAYMENT on the Big House today!! We close on 7/16, and we'll never have to deal with it again. YIPPEE!!!!!!! πŸŽ‰πŸ’₯πŸŽŠπŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜‚πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ˜πŸ»πŸ˜πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ˜‰β˜πŸ»πŸŽŠπŸ˜³πŸŽ‰ The changes are subtle but impactful to my eye anyway. The new bottom border of #beetlekill will be stained Ebony with #Penofin to match the belly band and fascia. Battens are on the tongue end now, and the #Onduvilla roofing is ready for its rake ends to be installed and drip edges to be painted blue. Even just having a few of the fascia boards installed gives it a more finished look, but we definitely should have used 6" instead of 4" for a more polished look, especially on the tongue end. By day's end the other side of the dormers should have siding, too. πŸ‘πŸ» #tinyhouse #tinyhousediy #tinyhouseliving #tinyhousesiding #thow Brandy is combining my original #tinyhouse layouts (right) with the #TinyHouseSystems MEP (top) to create an exact measure #tinyhouseblueprint for wiring and plumbing up the casa (left). Moving right along! #tinyhousediy #tinyhouseliving #ivegotthepower βš‘οΈπŸ’‘πŸ”Œ It's official, people: #TinyHouse43 is coming to #Colorado for a year +/- in September!! Now we need help finding parking near #WestminsterCO, so please help spread the word if you're willing! (FYI the awesome photo of the Colorado flag is from Etsy store COLyfestyle - check them out!) #THOW #TH43 #tinyhome #tinyhouse #tinyhousediy #tinyhouseliving #tinyhousetravel #WestminsterColorado #BoulderCO #rockymountains Someone call Kiddo. She needs to use the "5-point Palm Exploding Heart Technique" to kill Tropical Storm Bill, like, now before our #tinyhouse floats away. πŸ˜«πŸš«β˜”οΈπŸ’¦πŸŒŠ #nomorerain #floodingintexas #tinyhouseboat Well, at least Brandy bought all the wiring and outlet boxes yesterday so he'll still have something to do while it rains yet again. It's starting to feel like a line from a Nine Inch Nails song around here: Every day is exactly the same. πŸš«β˜”οΈ #dejavualloveragain #itsrainingitspouring #tinyhousediy #THOW #tinyhouse #tinyhouseliving
