All set up for winter!
It's been as while since the last post, as things have been busy. Between getting the house ready for winter, searching for jobs, adjusting to a new place, and trying to enjoy the last few weeks before winter really settles in.
Speaking of winter settling it, one of the final task that needed to be completed before winter was putting skirting around the house to keep wind from howling underneath the house and keep snow from building up. The cheapest and least permanent way to do that was hay. I searched around on Craigslist, and found someone with a number of small square bales from the bottom of a pile that weren't really suitable for animals. I gave him $20 and he said I could take as many as I wanted. He helped me load about 25 bales into the truck, and I was on my way.
Turns out that the bales were installed just in time, as our first snow of the season came a few days later. It wasn't much, but it was enough to make a tiny snowman to go with the tiny house. A few days later, we got an even more significant snow that dumped almost 6 inches! I must say, I really like the house with a coat of snow on it.
Another thing that has been accomplished in the past couple of weeks is that we finished filming for Tiny House Hunters. We did four days of filming in Maine and waited to do the last day in Bozeman. It's amazing the amount of work that goes into filming a 25 minute episode. I can't say much more right now, but the episode will likely air in the first few months of 2017. When I find out when it will air, I'll be sure to let everyone know.
