Hello All! Its has been a couple of months since I last updated everyone on our living progress. I did admit that I am not the best at keeping updates but its better late than never. Before I get into the juicy details about our cable TV debut, here are some housekeeping updates.
We officially moved from our original landing spot to our new location. Literally the next day, one of the neighbors called the county on us and now we will probably have to move. We feel as if we are fugitives on the run that have not committed any crime. It’s unfortunate that people can’t be civil and talk to us in person but run and cry to mama!! Ok, enough venting on that issue, but in all seriousness the counties within the state of North Carolina are all different. Being that we are a Tiny House on Wheels puts us in a category where there are no regulations/zoning codes built for us around this area. We have to start looking around again making sure we stay close to the area for my job and Sophie’s school. If we moved farther away then we would have to restart the process again, which brings us to housekeeping update #2.
We have signed Sophie up for what we call Big Kid School, and she will be starting Kindergarten in August. We are excited for her to attend and she is most excited about the pool and having ice cream on Fridays for lunch. She just went to the Strawberry Farm this past week and loved every minute of it. April and I were chaperones and Sophie did not want anything to do with us but wanted to be with her friends and teacher. So, once she gets to Kindergarten there will be no doubt that she will enjoy her new class, teachers, and friends.
Lastly, we officially have our snippet displayed on the HGTV Tiny House-Big Living. Our episode airs THIS Monday May 30th (Memorial Day) around 9:30 est or 8:30 cst. It’s so exciting to actually see the final project after months of filming. I would love to see how they fit all of that filming into 22 minutes of air time. Here is a link to the snippet of our episode.

I hope you can all tune in to our episode and see the process in a nut-shell! I want to re-thank everyone who donated their time, talents, and treasures to make this possible because we can only express so much gratitude in words how much this truly meant to us in accomplishing our Tiny House.
Bart & Bruce from B2 Design Build, Jamie & Scott (electricians), Tyler Banks and team (Cabinet Makers), Nature’s Stone (Countertops), Floors To Go (our flooring) Sherwin Williams (all our paint, primer, brushes, supplies) which was a tremendous gift, donations from our Gofundme/YouCaring account, random monetary donations in the mail from family and friends, the hard work of Leon Boeckel (church friend), Steve Braun (father-in-law), Mark Vagle (church friend), Matt Anderson (friend and wine aficionado) and Charlie Rhein (friend and co-worker). I want to thank John and Julie Diwi for their support through out the years and especially their “babysitting” duties. I could not thank you enough especially during the year of April’s extreme health decline. The awesome crews from Orion Entertainment….Wow! Now I know how it feels when you win an Oscar and want to thank all the countless hours put in and all the people who made our dream possible. We can not forget the many other, the list goes on and on. You know who you are!
Enjoy the Show!!
