A Post Full of Pictures!

It’s almost May and with the reality of the build getting closer, I’m feeling inspired!

Today I finished my tiny house inspiration board after going through my bookmarks and choosing some of my favourite pictures of tiny houses. Here it is:

Some of the featured houses are the Tiny Tack House, Tiny House Giant Journey, Tiny Refuge, La Maison, the house I visited in Quebec near my grandparents’, a Wishbone tiny house, Brittany’s tiny house for rent, and Macy Miller’s house.

Another inspiration piece I have up on my walls is this picture my sister drew for me, of me sitting in my future window seat:

I also wanted to share some of the first things I ever made out of wood. I took tech. ed. (technology education) in junior high. One of our projects was to build this little shelf, which now hangs in my dad’s garage:

It's even stained!

At the end of the year, we got to choose our own thing to make, and I, unsure in my wood working skills, made 6 simple plaques, one each for myself, my sister, my mum, my dad, and my best friend and boyfriend at the time. I don’t have pictures of the last two, but they’re all the same shape with personalized words on them.

Guess whose this is...

And mine. It does hang straight, I just purposely left it crooked.

And lastly, here’s something I bought the other day for my future home:

It’s a chime, made from purple-dyed agate slices. My house will have purple trim, so it will match 🙂 In my steps list PowerPoint, I mentioned inspiration pieces that you can collect before you build. They don’t have to be practical, they can just be beautiful.

What inspires your tiny house dream?

P.S. I’m sorry for the low-quality pictures; I’m no professional photographer. I like to take a quick photo just so you get the picture 😛 Build pictures will be better out in the sunlight.
