Finders Keepers

After a tough day at work…(yeah, wasn’t very tough…I played with Photoshop and went craft supply shopping) I met with one of my PIC’s (partner in crime). We went tiny house hunting with three kids ages 4-8.

This may have been test number one in tiny house 101. Three kids, two adults in an enclosed space.  They were so excited to look at the tiny houses that they ran around in circles.  Little 12×28 circles. Over and over. And over.

I did what any good mother would do. No. I didn’t hand them an IPad. I sent them outside to play. And they happily complied. Playing tag and jumping in little puddles. It was great.

That’s what I envision life like in the house. You get tired of looking at someone….go outside. Do something creative and fun. Milk the goat. Feed the chickens. Water that vegetable garden I want so bad. I’m sure it will take some getting used to, but I think it will be a good lesson in life for them.

I can hear their angelic little voices whining that they are hungry. Hungry? Go get a cucumber out of the garden. Out of tomatoes? Nah….. got a whole row of ’em.

I kind of got off on a tangent.  Sorry about that. My whole point to this post was to tell you I found it.
I found the one.

It’s made by genesis and it’s just what  looking for. It’s 12×28.
Comes wired already, although I need to have it expanded for permanent living and make sure it can pass inspection. Double 8×12 lofts (at about 5 feet at its peak), windows… all for a great price!

We went to a few other places too. The prices for 12×28 all ran about the same price, but the features were different and frankly the sales guy at the first place, where I found the Genesis, was a lot more helpful and they seemed like they’d be willing to bend over backwards to either make a sale or promote customer service. that always goes a long way.

I’ll tell you more about it later. With pictures!
