1 Year of 120 Square Feet

I nearly let the anniversary pass me by.  I started this blog last year on St. Patrick's Day.  But that wasn't when we started the house.  We had actually already been building for a year when I decided to dive into the tiny house blogosphere. 

We will be back up to North Carolina this weekend and I am very excited about the interior projects that we are working on.  I do promise to take my camera. 

However, we did do something this weekend that is, after a fashion, really a part of the tiny house process. See, this blog isn't just for the process of building.  The intention is that this will also be a journal about living in a 120 square foot house.  Since today was the Spring Equinox, we decided to take on a project here in Atlanta - container gardening.  We live in the 16th floor of a high rise apartment so we wanted to plant a few different vegetables on the balcony.  We chose two different kinds of peppers - jalapeno and sweet banana peppers.  We also planted tomatoes and potatoes. Neither of us have been gardeners before, but it will be an important part of the sustainable and self-sufficient living we envision on our mountain. 

Wish us luck!

  1. Thanks so much for sharing your build, I love reading other peoples takes on these fun places. You are so lucky to be there with your build, I went a few years ago and fell in love with that area, actually have a cousin just outside of Marshall and lives at the top of a hill... How bizarre, their names are Tim and Dani. Anyway we are also doing a build and have worked on it for approx 7 months now, not in a big hurry as it will be a guest house on our property in NV for now at least. Thanks again for sharing your experiences.
