Tight quarters, thunder
storms and crappy food on the road., wow what a ride. People
have been asking', "where you been", "what have you been up to?" and
"what's new?" and all I can say is wait for me to post it . I
know it's been long coming , however life is just pushing me swiftly
along. Well I do have pictures and some stories to go along
with them. First set of pictures will be showing off my tiny
home. When I say tiny, I really do mean tiny.
Basically I lived off the grid as there was no standard
electricity, no running water, no bathroom, no real kitchen and no
single spot to call an address. Guess you can say it's more
like a tiny, mobile house.
Looking at the first picture on the left. this is a very tiny closet
that houses mainly stuff that you might need at your bedside, also
stuff you would find in the bathroom (toothbrush and toothpaste) as
well as exercise equipment and bottle of water. This little
chubbie hole isn't much more over eighteen inches high by eighteen
inches wide by eighteen inches deep. This little chubbie hole
is located at the head of my bed.
The second picture is of the chubbie hole (closet) located at the foot
of my bed. Here is where I role my clothing and stack it in a
somewhat organized pile with jeans on the bottom and shirts on the top.
My undergarments are located hanging across the chubbie hole
on a bungee cord, and no I did not take any pictures of them.
The third picture is where I have bungee cord hanging from left to
right behind my human catcher. There I hang my jackets and coats, once
in a while a shirt or two. You might also notice a white,
ringed hanger, which I use to hang
my small, round suction cup mirror on a bungee cord in the
front of the bed when I need it.
Now if you study the next row of pictures you might find I used bungee
cords in a very fascinating way.
In the first picture of
this row you will notice my hair brush.
I have my hair brush wedged in between my cubbie hole and
ceiling. Now you can also see two wonderful bungees, one that
wraps around the closet (blue bungee) and one that travels from the
closet to the human catcher (green bungee). Hanging from the
blue bungee is my wash cloth. What you don't see is my small
hand towel which is just a little bit to far right to be in the
picture. On the green bungee there is a bag with small things
that hang just over my head when I sleep.
In the second
picture is my bedroom light. Even a tiny home
needs light to see especially at night.
In the third
picture you can see my purse that hangs from the bungee
running across the bottom of my bed. My travel mug hangs from
the human catcher and there is a small black bag which holds those
unmentionable I said I didn't have any pictures of. Notice
the small snap on window covering at the bed. There is
actually two windows in my tiny home bunk, one at the bottom of the bed
and the other at the head of the bed. You can also notice
some clothing on the left side of this picture, I have a bungee cord
running in the front of my bed across the ceiling which allows me to
hang my dressy clothing.
Below is my last
bunch of pictures of my sleeping area. The
pictures of the lower bunk, fridge and solid hanging closet
is still on one of my camera's and as soon as I can offload them onto
my computer I will post another page with them on it.
So now this brings us to
my last set of bedroom pictures.
This is the had of my bed ... sorry the pictures are of poor
quality. If you look at the top right hand corner you will
notice my cup holder behind the plastic bag. I was very messy
that morning and forgot to tuck my newspapers behind my chubbie.
You can also see my window all snapped up just behind my
In the other
picture you can see my vent for heat or air conditioning.
Look to the left of my purse hanging up and you will see a
wee vent, although not the only vent in my upper bunk area.
Now that you have
had a look at my living quarters, you have to admit
it's quite a cute place to live and very functional. A tiny
house can be a very good house although running water would be an
asset. Can't wait to show you more pictures in the next
little while. Keep an eye open for new links. I'll
do my best to let people on my twitter and Facebook know when they are
live on the web.
