My "Tiny House Helpers" Series


Ever since I first started planning for my house, I've had people offering up their services to help. From family members to friends to other tiny house enthusiasts, so many people want to lend a hand. I'm a slight control freak mixed with a perfectionist so I'm not sure how letting people help is going to work. I remember being told by someone who's built tiny houses that you quickly realize who in your circle of friends/volunteers should help with framing your walls and who should bring the potato salad or beer. By the way, if I ever ask you to bring potato salad or beer to my build, know that I take both of those responsibilities very seriously.

Almost immediately, I started doing a lot of thinking about ways to show my appreciation to those who lend a hand along my journey. I'm still mulling around one idea I really like. The logistics need to be worked out but I'm thinking of having my helpers names engraved on my house somewhere. Sort of like a wall of fame. I could either do an actual part of my wall (internal or external) or maybe the under side of my loft. I think it would be a nice, lasting homage to those involved in my project. Anywhere my house goes, so do you. Anyone that visits, sees your name. Seems like a cool idea to me. I don't know. Does anyone out there know someone that can engrave names into wood siding for me?

But in the meantime, I thought I could at least do a feature on my blog for my helpers. They get some recognition and you get a name to go with the faces you will see in the pictures. I think I'll do one a week or so.

Stay tuned for upcoming bios. Thanks for stoppin' by!
