Tiny House : A Year Later
We've been through four seasons in the Tiny House already and it's so hard to believe. First of all because, well it only felt like one or two seasons since we're living in hot, humid Texas. Secondly, because the year went by so quickly we hardly knew what was happening. We have thoroughly enjoyed it. We made a few modifications after living in it for a while such as removing the medicine cabinet and opting for a flat mirror and exposed shelving in the bathroom to give us more space to work with. We also added some book shelves here and there to hold and showcase all of our books. We've hosted dinner parties, had guests over and we held a few band practices and even moved the house around the corner.
One of the questions we get asked a lot is 'What's it like living in a tiny house?' It catches me off guard at times because I'm so used to it that I forget that it's quite different from traditional housing. The truth is, it's not any different from living in a four bedroom house. It's home and we feel at home in it!
After all, we did live in this pop up camper for four months during the build, so moving into the Tiny was like heaven.
Do we have any regrets? My only regret is not doing it sooner. This was one of the best decisions we've ever made. Will we live in it forever? Who really knows what the future will bring? Can anyone really answer that question? Life is handled one day at a time. For the past year, we have been really enjoying the house and Houston!
For example, we've really enjoyed getting to know the music scene in Houston thus far. We're hoping to get out to see even more shows and network with our fellow musicians as time goes on. We went from having no shows to a full calendar of dates in the Houston area in the span of a year. Not bad for being new to town. Here's a picture of a recent show we did at a coffee shop in Galveston. We had a full house outside on the patio.
Moving forward I'd like to host more of my own shows too! We did one this year and it was a huge success. I called it a 'Sundays Unplugged' show. We had it on a Sunday. I rented out a venue and invited people to attend. We had a really good showing. I invited a violinist to join us and we rocked the house.
If you know of any venues that I might be a good fit or if you have an intimate spot that I can host a Sundays Unplugged show, please get in touch. I'd love to hear from you.
Talk to you later!
