T42 Built-Ins

T42 Built-Ins

We've snuck in a few extra build days for our tiny house T42, working on built-ins, including a set of alternating tread stairs, an entry step with shoe cubbies, a closet that doubles as a walkway for our bedroom, and a riser for the bathroom floor. It's so fun to see our house take shape again! 

Downsizing E-Course Kicks Off in September

Downsizing E-Course Kicks Off in September

If you're ready to take a good look at your Stuff, this e-course is for you. We'll address our relationship with Stuff, discuss needs and wants to figure out what really matters, set priorities, and evaluate our possessions. We'll identify old habits and clutter magnets and tackle problem areas in our homes. Then we'll develop organizational systems and new habits to reduce clutter. And the best part is you'll get to do this with the encouragement of other people who are embarking on a similar journey.

Niche's New Website

Niche's New Website

Niche has a new website! In the fall of 2011, I created my blog This Is The Little Life to share vignettes about living big in small spaces. A year and a half later, I created my company Niche Consulting so I could help others through sustainable design consulting. This summer I hired my friends Casey and Eli to guide me in consolidating the two websites to make a shiny new website. We hope you like it! 

Tiny House Jamboree 2016

Tiny House Jamboree 2016

After attending Tiny House Jamboree last year, you can be sure I wasn't about to miss the second annual Tiny House Jamboree, which was hosted in Colorado Springs last weekend by Darin Zaruba and his awesome team from EcoCabins! It flew by in a flurry of hugs, high fives, and making connections with tiny house enthusiasts from all across the country and around the world.

Tiny House Design-Build Presentation Day 2016

Tiny House Design-Build Presentation Day 2016

Today we celebrated the hard work, incredible creativity, and mad building skills of our students as we wrapped up Tiny House Design-Build. As I've noted previously in Less is More Wrap Up and Tiny House Design-Build Wrap Up, Presentation Day feels like Xmas morning to me! Watching the activity of the design studio the night before Presentation Day is a bit like hanging out in Santa's workshop on Xmas Eve. It leaves one with a night of excitedly disrupted sleep, curiosity brewing about what will be revealed the following day.
