My Tiny Reality
A blog about reality, dreams, and the space between.
I’ve only managed to get one day of work in on the house this week due to some schedule changes, and the same will come next week. The sweet part of things is that I may have found a place for the house in Bethlehem! I’m hopefully going to be able to check it out sometime next week.
Here is one of the new windows I had to buy since I ended up dropping and breaking the one I bought at the ReStore. While I was at the ReStore yesterday I ended up finding a Velux skylight for $50 which means there will now be TWO skylights in the house, ohhhh man its gonna be beautiful.Look now I can keep things inside the house!Inside shot of the new window and the door frame. I’ve got to actually take out the door frame so that I can secure the fixed panel into it, then put it in again.Taping up the seams so that moisture does not gather.
Working on the house yesterday was actually one of the roughest I’ve had. Didn’t really get much done and little things just kept going wrong, guess I have Mercury Retrograde to thank for that. With that said I’ve just got to take it as a sign to just stop working so things can continue to work again.
I’ve got a huuuge list of things to do. Finish taping, contact people for my solar panel fundraising, register trailer, install electric, insulate, interior paneling, replace ruined insulation in floor, install wood stove. So much stuff! So I’m just taking things as best I can, one at a time. Thankfully not all of that needs to be done before the house moves. Let’s see what happens next week! Solar eclipse coming up!
Hello everyone! Thankfully the rain held off the past two days and I was able to put the windows and doors in, and close off the rest of the larger openings in the house. I still have a couple small cracks to fill and then everything will be super water tight.This is when I was using the ZIP tape to flash the windows, wicked easy! I also ended up breaking the used window I got on cragislist so I had to buy a new one, which is all good its much better than the used one.
Sooo beautiful.Haha I also dropped the window on the right and broke it so Im probably going to be buying another window.
I’ve gotta take next week off which will put me a little behind schedule but a break will be nice. Carving pumpkins and Halloweeny things are in store! So in two weeks I’ll fill all the little spaces, finishing using the ZIP tape to seal the seams, then get to work on the bath wall. During my free time this week I’ll work on getting the trailer registered and planning out the electrical. I feel like I’m actually getting good at this building stuff! See ya next week!
What a week! There’s a lot going on in the stars to which I have certainly felt the effects in my own life. All excitement of course. As a celebration of finishing my 5 day kidney detox I kicked off monday by taking a spontaneous trip to go see a favorite musician of mine called Tycho. Very relaxing dream music I do yoga to a lot. Check out one of his albums here:
The detox was definitely tough but it is literally like magic how my body feels now. My knee had swelled up a ton as a result of aggravating the injury and in just those five days it got better than it was before! I’m honestly excited to do another one! The detox I did was from Dr. Schulze and theres many different kinds you can do. I pretty much drank tons of water, tea, and juice mixed with herbal tinctures for three days straight.
I managed to finish the roof this week. Those panels are way heavier than the walls and I’ll no doubt be super ripped from pushing them up the ladder and onto the roof. Now I only have two more larger openings to cover up and I can start to focus more on the windows and other smaller finishing touches like taping the seams of the panels. This Tuesday I was also featured on NH Chronicle you can check out the segment here:
Surprise shower! I totally forgot I ordered this a couple weeks ago and it came in the other day. It’s a 2x2x3 stock tank that I will be using as a shower. It’s the perfect size for the house and I was inspired by http://littleyellowdoor.wordpress.com to use this shower design.I finished the week off with a nice dog walk to my favorite spot at rabbit road to have a cup of tea and watch the sunset. This month is sure to be an amazing one. Many plans from the past 6 months coming to fruition.
