|This is the house I live in now and I will be working on my tiny house in the driveway. I love this little house but I guess it's time to turn the page! All for the better I say!|

Things Happen for a Reason
Yesterday, my landlord calls me to inform me that they are selling some of their rental properties and my house is one of the lucky ones! Great...so it looks like I could have as little as two months left in this house. The plan was to gradually work on the house and pack up things to prepare for the move by summer so it would not be so overwhelming. While that is what could still happen I don't know how fast they will sell this little house. I really have mixed feelings about this. On one hand this new turn of events will force me to work as hard as possible to make sure I am completing this project in a timely manner. But on the other hand I want to have some room for error or some unseen setback. But I have to think that things happen for a reason in their own time and place.
What if they would have called me three months ago and told me they were selling. I could have had to find a temporary place to live even before I was able to start on the house. At least now I am almost finished with the trailer and can start building the fun part! If I can get four walls, a roof, and the electric run, I will probably go ahead and move out to the new property as soon as possible and finish the house out there. Since I am going to be off-grid anyway this will give me a crash course in living without all of the comforts for a little while. But I figure it won't be too bad. I am going to use a generator for the lights, radio, computer use and air conditioning for now. And a propane stove, campfire, and solar oven for cooking. And I guess I will have to bring in water for now until I can get the well dug and the rainwater catching system set up. You know after writing this it sounds like a fun adventure and you can bet I will be updating and blogging about it all!
