Thanks to a nice article in the Durango Herald featuring yours truly, as well as a TON of Tiny House love from Facebook and the blogosphere, Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses is poised for a really great start. I have many people I would like to thank personally. First off, my best friend Laura. She has been with me through thick and thin and provided unending inspiration and advice. Not only that, in the rare times I need a helping hand to raise a wall or put on some housewrap, she is happy to help. I would not be where I am today without her support. I’m not always the best person in the world at showing appreciation, but thank you, Laura.
Next, I want to personally thank Dale Rodebaugh (writer) and Steve Lewis (photographer) of the Durango Herald for getting Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses on the front page! Something this prominent doesn’t go unnoticed. Friends around town are jokingly calling me “Mr. Famous.” People from all over the country are checking out the website and spreading the word. I haven’t had anyone ready to buy a house yet, but I have had some calls and emails about doing some consulting, answering questions, using their products, and I’ve had quite a few people wanting to work for me. If I haven’t got back to you yet, I promise I will.
Next, a host of Tiny House bloggers. I think Tiny House Design was the first to share the story, followed by Tiny House Listings, and then Tiny House Living. Alex Pino of the Talk did a super sweet article and intro into what RMTH is all about. To all you guys, thank you thank you thank you!
Lastly, a huge thanks to the masses of Tiny House fanatics. If you shared my story or liked my page or checked out the website, thank YOU! Together, we are the foundation of this movement and will show the world that less is indeed more. It is an exciting time to be a part of Tiny Houses.
Now, a little news. Construction of the new Boulder model is coming along nicely. As of 10-11-13, it is framed and sheathed/decked. From here I can begin electrical and plumbing work until the windows arrive, at which point I can get it fully dried in and begin installing siding. The process is moving a little slower than expected, but not because of inefficiencies or mistakes, rather, I’ve just had some other obligations consuming my time. It is still moving along much quicker than the Durango model did! Better yet, I am on budget to offer this house for less than $25k
A lot of people have been interested in the construction of the fold down porch on the Durango. I have the article written, I just need to get some photos added and this will be live, probably on Monday, so keep an eye out for that.
It’s Friday. I’m out of here. Going to head up to some high country this weekend to take in some fall colors with a snow backdrop following the big snow storm we had yesterday. Everyone have a safe and fun weekend!
