The House Has Moved!!!

We got the house moved this morning. It was interesting to watch. The ground was froze around it so it was hard to get on the truck, and they broke a window. The previous owners replaced the window for me, which was nice of them, and it’s now sitting on the concrete slab. I’ll get the plumbing done within the next month or two and then have the house reset so that it’s properly on the concrete. The ground is so soft right now that the truck couldn’t have set it properly. But it’s there!

The ceiling is taller than I thought it would be. There will be room to raise the bed for extra storage. It’s also a bit narrower than I expected, but only by a few inches. I think it will still be plenty wide for the floor plan I’d chosen though. I’m happy!


About thrugracealone

I'm a country girl raised city. I prefer open windows to AC, love a good thunderstorm, and enjoy hearing the owls and seeing lightning bugs. A bit old-fashioned, maybe, I can recognize many trees by name, resent elms and weeds, wish for a large garden and canning skills, and hope someday to downsize and get a few acres in the country. I am blessed with a terrific church, a good job, a sturdy house, two cats and a yard full of strawberries and mulberries in the right season. Some of my other favorite things to do are spoiling nieces and nephews, reading, swimming, biking, long walks, and blogging, of course. One of my favorite stories is creation. My abbreviated version goes like this: 1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2Now the earth wasa formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters... And God moved... And God said... And it was very good. If God can speak to darkness, to an earth without form and void, and make something like this that we see everyday, and make it very good (and it was even better before the Fall!), He will surely make something wonderful out of the dark, void situations I sometimes find myself in. He has, and it's been very good. Two top posts: Can a Person Lose their Salvation? Baptism!

    Hello, my name is Tamera Newberry. I live in Imperial, MO and have been shopping for a “tiny house” so I can also downsize and simplify. Did you purchase a shell tiny house on wheels? If so, would it be possible for me to see it?
