When Dad wants to know where all his money went for my BFA in Dance, this is one of my go to moves. I swear I do this for a living... 💃🏼👽
Displayed here is excitement pre-sanding all the cracks on the outside sheath. This amount of joy faded for sure, after I couldn’t feel my right tricep anymore.
But for some reason the lyrics of Fergi were fitting in this moment for me. Not sure why. But what I do know is, working on E makes me feel giddy like a toddler, and for that, I am so grateful. And what’s even more amazing about this moment is Kev, behind the camera, accepting me in all of my weirdness. Universal blessings getting to be able to call him my partner.
We understand that a custom-built home is not financial viable for everyone. We offer adaptable solutions that can give our clients options such as sourcing independent designs, contractors or take on roles themselves to lower the construction costs.
We feel everyone is entitled to a home and we strive to deliver this no matter how tiny or alternative the build is.
A little inside look in how we got the AC down from the roof. 😬
To be honest, we didn’t think we were going to be able to take it down, but through a little brainstorming we figured out to pull it down slowly without damaging the van’s exterior.
We were amazed that it worked and afterwards we felt like we are on top of the 🌎. .
We are thoroughly enjoying these little victories throughout this process and loving the realization that we capable of more than we think. 💪🏼
I’m sure we are not the only people out here who feel the same! ⚒👩🏻🔧👨🏽🔧
I got Tink and Slash 2 months apart from one another when I was just 19 years old. I was dating someone else at the time and Tink was considered mine and Slash was considered his. Honestly, looking back, I never should’ve gotten dogs that young as the responsiblity proved too much for a couple of teenagers. We couldn’t afford to train them properly so they were bad dogs for a long time. Slash especially. He was extremely hyper (cause puppy, duh), peed on EVERYTHING, chewed up anything in his path, and when we got him fixed ~ he took out his stitches 5 TIMES using his cone and it cost over $200 each time. When my ex and I broke up, luckily he was kind enough to not separate them and let me keep them both. But at the time I was working 45 minutes away from where I lived and started working doubles almost daily to cover his half of the rent. Of course, going through separation anxiety from him being gone and me working so much ~ they got even worse. I cried almost daily coming home to them because of neighbor complaints, pee everywhere, and torn up furniture. I considered many times giving them up because I wasn’t able to be a good owner to the both of them. I felt terrible for putting them through that. But THANKFULLY i stuck it out because the thought of giving them up tore me up inside. I eventually moved closer to work into a bigger and cheaper place which lead me to be able to spend more time with them and give them the love they deserved. Now, years later, they are the best two things that have ever happened to me. I made a lot of mistakes along the way ~ but I’m happy to say they are great dogs now and I couldn’t imagine my life without them. You live and you learn, right?
One of the best things about a #TinyHouse is how you can tailor it just for you, your style and needs. We need a durable and waterproof floors to fit our busy, traveling #tinyhouselifestyle .

We are genuinely blown away by how beautiful our new laminate TimberCraft +WetProtect floors turned out. Like a pristine new hardwood floor but so much easier to install and maintain. With our next several months of travel planned, including multiple #tinyhouse festivals, we will definitely be putting these new floors to the test. Stay tuned for updates from the road! -Alexis & Christian, @tiny_house_expedition 🚚🏡💨 👉See link in description to learn more about our floors + order a sample.
New boots says cap @siryancis_bacon • dropped the babe in Carey to get a bit of welding on the frame after replacing the tires • and new axels • notes on how to tell of your axels need replacing in comments #safety first
The traditional Bajan (Barbados) chattel house. Built in sections. As the owner acquired resources more 'house' would be added on. Also totally movable as they were usually sat on blocks - Giving ventilation in the cellar. The high peaked roof also dissipated heat through the gable jalousies. A testament to the craftsmen who built them. They are becoming an extinct species as most are replaced with more modern houses. #barbados#joinery#coloursofthecaribbean#woodworking#tinyhome#diy#historichome#colonialhouse#thisoldhouse
Sometimes your in the right spot at the right time!
So yesterday we booked for two nights in this campground and were so impressed that we walked to the office to get another night. There was a sign on the window telling us they would be right back and while we were waiting the winter season camp host came up and told us they were looking for hosts. We said Thx but no Thx. The manager told us we couldn’t get another night but if we would host just for a week she would give us a free spot and refund our second night that we paid for. The only thing required was to be on duty after 9pm to help campers to spots, sell ice and firewood, and just be helpful. We looked at each other and said “Dah”, this is a win win situation. Free camping in a beautiful campground for 8 days with minimum work, we couldn’t say no.
This is our new site with a beautiful yard, life is good!..
If you are looking for a camp hosting job on the Columbia River in Boardman Oregon call 541-481-7217 and tell them Bonnie Williamson sent you. .
Looks like I‘m the queen of my castle!
No, seriously: I just love your little home SO much! It‘s so comfortable, so cozy and we always have it by our side. I couldn‘t wish for anything else, really.
My favourite part is definitely the bed and the fact that we don‘t have to make it every night. Also, with a memory foam mattress AND a topper, it is just incredibly comfortable!! .
What‘s your favourite part of your #vanbuild ? Let us know in the comments!
Originally, this spot on the bus was a wine rack. It was beautiful and very cleverly designed- if we drank I’m sure we would’ve kept it!
We couldn't think of what to do with the space (It's about 5'x2.5'x5") until I remembered something from one of the (hundred) bus tours I had watched on YouTube.
And voila! A magnetic medicine cabinet/junk drawer! I need to get some more magnetic tins to store things like paperclips and tacks, but for our daily medications and vitamins this works pretty perfectly!
Oh look! I found a clean spot in the camper 😂 still in limbo before we get to our final destination so this place is packed with literally everything we own 🤷♀️ which is actually pretty cool to think about. I feel...lighter. The transition has been going well so far!! Now if we could just get Molly to sleep in her bed...she's been sleeping in the crib with Ev 😂 oh well....at least she's sleeping!
Warm mornings, endless palm trees, yoga, meditation and a tiny taster with some unruly wind swell.... Sri Lanka was a delight for the 4 nights I was there 🙈
A good reminder it’s not always where you go but who is by your side 💕 Also a reminder to always pack a first aid kit when you travel, and an especially good reminder that fins have a mind of their own and can just jump up to bite you ⚡️ Glad you’re ok @djb_construction - next time we book I’m thinking a boat trip on 10ft reef breaks is going at the tail end instead and I promise I won’t jinx you on here first 😜
Ps thanks for the amazing rashy @indigoandsalt ☝🏽

Pretty excited about the first day of Summer ☀️🎉🏖 These 2 Beauties are available now, starting at $69,000. Which one do you like better?
The next Tiny, a 30’ called Oceanside, is coming along nicely. I’ve added initial details about it on the website, link in profile 🤙🏻
A few things have been happening at the tiny house lately: 1. Our ceiling went up today! Jordan’s best friend helped him and they did such a great job! 2. Our walls are going up! And 3. Our house is sided! Minus across the very top since we had to order a special finishing piece to fit the last piece of siding in. Also, we ordered a grey cap for the roof edge on the front, so it will match the rest of the house. P.S. the first two pictures were taken during a storm, so the lightning isn’t ideal. But I was too impatient to wait. 🤩❤️
Wait a minute, can we actually power a full-on household AC unit with the sun? The tentative answer is yes, yes we can. This AC unit is a 12,000 btu, 1080 watt Whynter reversible heat pump. Usually the limiting factor isn't the running watts, but the start-up draw on the compressor that trips the inverter into overload. Our inverter did give us a warning beep when the thing first kicked on, but then it just kept working. Neat!
