Tiny House Open House

On Sunday, Dylan and I got up, made some bacon and toast, and headed off to Mahone Bay (which is about an hour and a half away) to visit Full Moon Tiny Shelters’ open house! After getting a little lost, we found it, and got to look around the 3 tiny houses.

The hunting cabin:

It has the popular propane boat heater!

…but no plumbing.

Oh, what a nice closet door!

Oh.

Hidden electrical. Not sure what’s behind this.

“Space,” built to be an example of their work (still needing some finishing touches):

Love the porch.

It’s just a room though…

And 28′ big blue one, built for a family with young kids to use as a cabin:

TWO windows? This bathroom is huge šŸ˜›

Interesting design.

The kids’ loft.

The parents’ loft. That’s a decent sized window! Neat whitewashed ceiling.

 

I didn’t get any pictures of the downstairs main area in the blue one because there were people, but it’s empty and the floor is still plywood. They had a floor plan on the wall though with plans for a decent sized kitchen and stairs to the kids’ loft. I was a little disappointed that the family wasn’t going to use it as a full-time house, but I can totally understand, with kids, why they wouldn’t.

We didn’t stay as long as I expected, because I really had no questions for them. I’ve already researched and decided how I want my house, so I didn’t need any answers from them. It was cool to see the houses though. We saw about a dozen people there, and obviously more had been coming and going throughout the day. I had hoped for more of a conversational, everyone-involved type of event, but everyone kept to themselves and the owners of the company were just around to answer questions. Oh well! Dylan and I got to spend a nice day together, and my shift was cancelled that night so we stayed in town, had a late lunch, and explored downtown a bit. šŸ™‚
