We built a new pen for our pigs because the shelter in our old pen was getting run down and when ever it rained the pigs would get wet and it would fill with water. Plus, the feeder was out in the open so when it rained the feed in the feeder would get wet. By building part of the pig pen under the shelter, we can put the feeder under there, which will save us a lot of time and frustration later on because the feed will stay dry. Also, the pigs will enjoy it more because they’ll have more room and stay dry when it rains. Happier pigs and happier us!
So this year we weren’t going to get any chicks…until spring fever hit…and we just had to get a few… because, well…when it comes to those cute fluffy chicks, who can resist?
We’re off to a slow start but are now finally getting ready to get electricity to my tiny house.
Dylan’s shed is here and set, so now we’re ready to begin transforming our sheds into homes.
We wanted to give you an update on what’s been happening on the homestead as we did chores, but it’s cold out, so it turned out to be a sit in the car and chat kinda update. Stay tuned to a video coming really soon on what we did to keep all our animals warm when the weather got worse.
Plans for our sheds to houses are slowly starting to come together and we are so excited!! Then on top of that, Brooke and I each found great deals on a couple of claw foot bathtubs and Dylan found a urinal at a great price. It’s almost like we’re more excited about those things than we are about getting our sheds. 😂🤣
When the movers picked up the mobile home, they cut the water pipe and heat tape which left a part of our water line and valve sticking out of the ground. It was exposed to the elements with no way to plug in the heat tape. Luckily we’ve had pretty mild weather so far this winter, but there have been a few cold spells which caused the valve to freeze and crack. We decided it was time to do something about it and fix it… but it turned out to be more complicated than we thought. Did we get it done anyway? Well…. you’ll just have to watch…
It’s so hard to plan out exactly how to lay out my shed to house. So, to create a visual that will hopefully help me decide, I decided to put my refrigerator in. Not only will it give me a visual, but it will also help me decide if I want to use that one or get a smaller one.
My tiny house is here and I’m so excited to be able to make it into a peaceful living space for my daughter and me. It’s just the beginning… but we’ve got a some big dreams and hope you will follow along on our journey.
We’ve had some BIG plans in the works for months, but we wanted to wait to share the news until we knew for sure they would happen. So now we’re ready to share and proceed with our plans…. but first…. we must expand the sewer.
