Sorry for the weird password protected post last week. I didn’t think that would go out to the public. Oops! The reason behind that post ties in to the exciting developments that have been going on. As some of you know, Mur and I have been dreaming and scheming of a way to build a house over near Leavenworth. There are so many factors that go into this type of project that I had been a little nervous to tell people about it. I’m still a little nervous… BUT it looks like things are moving forward to have our house built this year!!! Mur has been designing the plans and I have been researching renting our house out (I’m going to be landlady… :-P) and working on the interior design of the new house (the beast part!). We are also kicking around the idea of finding an old vintage trailer to live in while we build. TWO dreams at once! 🙂
This year is phase 1, which is a very small house with a loft space that will become the guest house when we build our larger house in phase 2. Because the house we’ll live in for phase 1 (probably for a year) is VERY small (like 300 sq feet), I have some SERIOUS decluttering to do. I have started photographing and listing all of my treasures for sale. The post last week is that listing. I wanted to send it to a few wedding vendors friends first privately before turning to craigslist. I’ve also been prepping for a massive garage sale in May. Today I cleared our bookshelf of everything I bought but still haven’t read in 3 years (that means I’ll never read it) and books I have read, but weren’t dear enough to my heart to keep. Luckily, we will be able to keep a few things in our basement at our current house, so I don’t have to get rid of stuff (like my wedding dress) that definitely will not fit in tiny house. 🙂
Thanks for reading this extra long post, I’m excited to continue to share our journey through this process.
ps. I’m sure you couldn’t tell, but I drew the house above 🙂
