That lived-in feeling

We're loving living in the tiny so far. The beauty of a small space is that the things we once thought were so "necessary" really get annoying when they're stacked up in the way, and you realize they're just not that important anyways. And of course, there are things we've accumulated since moving in that are truly needed, like a tiny shower curtain, biodegradable dish soap, and other whatnots.

We've been bike-commuting from the new location to our work, Jeff every day and me a few days a week. It's nice to have a long enough ride that you get actual exercise out of the bargain and get your heart rate up. It's a great way to clear your head after the workday, too!

It is truly rewarding to bike home to our Tiny House amongst its little grove of cedar trees, walk in and cook up some dinner and snuggle into our cozy couch.

Over the past few weeks we've been adding a lot of needed trim and molding, caulking edges, installing the sink, completing the soffits, doing lots of cleaning/organizing, adding "faux rafters" to the ceiling (a post on that to come later), and enjoying settling into our new space! It's starting to get that lived-in feeling that just makes you say: "YES. This is what I hoped it would feel like."

Dinner with friends!

Tonight marks one week in the Tiny House full time.  We have a friend who is going to stay with us a night or two before she is off to Hawaii so her and Margo's mother Mary (a lot of M's) came over for dinner.  We are surprised by how spacious this house is, and 4 people for dinner (cooking while they were here) was really easy and I think we could have even added two more comfortably.  Here are a few pictures.  You can see some of the work we have done including the bathroom, sliding door, couch, and flooring.
