Latest Posts from the Blog!

Interior Updates to our Tiny House We've done a few things to our tiny house since our move across the country. One of the first interior updates we did when we arrived in Tennessee was to put pictures and decorations up on the walls. This was something Mrs Epic...read more
We created a tiny office in our tiny house! As we've come to realize since we've lived in our tiny house for several months now, tiny house living is all about finding ways to make your living space work to your benefit. Since we decided to move across the country...read more
We moved our tiny house from California to Tennessee. Roughly 2,300 miles in two and a half days. It was exciting, nerve-racking, scary, but ultimately very rewarding to move across the country with our tiny house on wheels. It all began with Mrs Epic’s birthday trip...read more

Tiny House Stairs We stayed in a very nice tiny house in Portland in the beginning of February 2015 to see what tiny house living was like, and it had a ladder to get to the loft. It did not have tiny house stairs. From that point on, we knew that we did not want a...read more
The other day, I was scrolling through a notebook that I’ve been using for my to-do lists. I scrolled back a few extra pages and saw a doodle of our house design. This house layout was nearly 100% how our house turned out, which is crazy thinking that we had that...read more

This is a super simple design, but extremely functional. With these brackets from Home Depot or Amazon, a pair can hold up to 880 lbs, and it opens a full 90 degrees and closes completely against a flat wall. It's the perfect space saving design and on a great...read more
Cat Window Perch Our cat, Bucket, loves nothing better than to lay in the sun and look out the window at nature, so it was only natural for us to build him a window perch! I wanted to be sure that I could move this from window to window, depending on what our future...read more
