My Tiny Reality
A blog about reality, dreams, and the space between.
Finally in the flow with cutting the rafters! I got the majority of them all done yesterday and I have about 5 more to cut as well as the ones for the skylight above the loft. Next week the roof will be on for sure and I’ll never have to think about the rain again!
Had a little mishap and accidentally set the circular saw blade down on its cord and tore through it. I allllmost got upset that I would need to buy a new one, luckily I had everything I needed to fix it.. I’ve certainly had plenty of experience stripping wires and connecting them together from wiring up the trailer.
I had been unsure of which direction my tiny house will be going once its done since I applied for a job at Gould Farm in Massachusetts, and I just found out that I didn’t get the job which means the tiny house will travel up North quite soon! It’s good to have a little more direction now. That’s all for this week! I’ll be off soon for a massage and little spa time then into the woods!
PS Heres the trews!
Check out the Hippo Press tomorrow! I was interviewed for a tiny house story they will feature in tomorrows issue.
My tiny house progress has been tiny this week since I had my Reiki II attunement yesterday. Today I picked up all my roof rafter supplies, my bright blue door paint, and managed to cut one somewhat properly. It’s definitely a challenge not having any experience with this but at the same time it is fun learning as I go.
My Reiki II attunement yesterday was incredible. My sense of clarity and wholeness has been amplified so much. I’m currently filled with some strong meditative energy. Like my first attunement I feel like something inside is calling me into meditation at certain times of the day. Its a beautiful feeling but it definitely keeps me from making more tiny house progress. Part of me wants to push the meditative feeling away but I certainly know from past experience that ends up throwing everything out of balance. So its with my natural feelings I go! The best path to take for sure. It feels really good to take things easy too, I’ve really made so much progress this summer and its time to kick back a bit.
“My knees are doing incredible! Take that western medicine! No surgery!”
Camping has been wonderful. The weather was great this week, no rain except one quick storm. The temperature at night is plenty comfortable too with all the blankets I’ve got. Sitting around the fire every night is amazing too. It’s fun to dialogue with nature completely on my own. As you can see in my picture I drew some designs around the fire pit, naturally I consecrated the space around the fire. My camping couldn’t have come at a more perfect time. Summer slipping into Autumn and I just finished reading a very magical book about the incredible life of Patrice Malidoma Some who is an elder of the African tribe called the Dagara. It’s definitely had a huge effect on me as everything in the past week of my life. Full Moon, Reiki II, and tonight more Shamanic Dreamwork! Let’s see what magic this next week brings.
Majority of sheathing done! Next week I can begin on the roof and soon enough won’t have to worry about rain ever again! Soon after the roof the windows and doors will be put in. Anyone who wants to help out feel free to get in touch and this stuff could be done sooner.
I picked up my Origo 3000 marine stove which will be my main cooking stove for the tiny house. It runs on denatured alcohol and performs wonderfully. The main draw of using this stove is that it can easily be taken off the countertop to create more space, rather than having a fixed stove. It will be great for my time spent camping in Twin Mountain too. I’m very excited to use it this week to make oatmeal and coffee in the morning.
Here is my campsite from Monday night. There’s a total of 14 down the dirt road leading to the base of North Twin Mountain, all free to camp at for 14 consecutive nights, purrfect for my situation and only 10 minutes from the Mt Wash hotel and Balance in Bethlehem. I’m hoping to get a better site when I head up in a bit, there was a beautiful one Seth, Abby, and I stayed at that had a brook running around it.
To close things with something that has been fun to watch is people’s reactions when I tell them now that my apartment lease is up I camp the majority of the week. Some are very excited and jealous to hear what I’m doing, others are perplexed and wonder how I do it. It certainly shows the variety of perspectives human beans have in regards to what they consider an optimal setting to live in. To each his own. Time for me to go get some cookies!
