“He is well satisfied with his accommodation,
which provides all modern amenities in a compact and convenient form,
and leaves him the maximum amount of time free for his work.
How much time people waste in walking from one room to another....
Space is time.”
~~David Lodge, "Small World "
and I notice someone's post of a random picture of a house traveling down a road pulled by a truck.
I was hooked.
So I Googled "Tiny house" and was led to a blog.
and continued on to other links,
other tiny houses,
and all things "tiny".
I asked her if she had heard of these "tiny houses",
and explained that I was obsessed with the idea of "living small".
"Grandma! Have you been to Dad's house lately?
I think there is one right up the street!
Joel told me about it!
They're from California!
Come on! Let's go and see if it's still there!"
"Taylor, is it sort of brownish-red?
It sounds like the one I have been reading about!"
And "go" we did!
And yes, it was still there!
And even more amazing, yes, it was the tiny house I had read about!
We walked down to see it for ourselves and to meet Guillaume, Jenna, and their sweet Australian Shepherd, Salies. As I explained to them how I knew about them, Guillaume mentioned several times what a small world it is. Jenna is a Shelbyville girl who left "The Ville" to follow a dream, and now she has returned with Guillaume and Salies to finish building their home. It is all part of their "Giant Journey".
you will find out that the siding is from an old barn in Wisconsin.
Well, read it here for yourself!
Jenna, Guillaume, and Salies~
Thank you so much for letting us tour your home!
We loved meeting you,
and look forward to following you on your "most excellent adventure"!
