On The Road Again

We've started the 2-3 day drive back to Texas from Loveland, Colorado, and we're snapping a few pics along the way. This post will be updated throughout the trip, so check back for more photos as we travel. Unfortunately we won't be making any formal tour stops this time around, but if you happen to see us on the road be sure to send is a photo at tinyhouse43@gmail.com! 

I couldn't find our usual travel sign (still planning to build a permanent one at some point as well), so I made this one. Hard to see from the glare, but it'll have to do for now. 💙🏡💜

And lastly, here's the view from the kitchen windows now. The pond is visible off to the left, and the tiny house is well shaded even from the setting western sun. Not bad! 4/5/16 @ 1845

And this concludes our move from Northern Colorado to the North Texas area. We've got loads of finishing projects ahead of us, as well as some improvements to make to avoid future mold issues. We will continue to blog our progress and share photos on our accounts, and we invite you to follow along. Once we're settled into our routines a bit here we'll likely invite folks over for an open house again, so if you're local keep a lookout for that invite. In the meantime, have a lovely week and we post again soon!!
