It would appear that after ten months, I have finally struck upon something that might just top that very perfect, lovely red raspberry so proudly posted back in October 2016. A slight veering of focus, but one which I hope will still be backdropped by a keen, if slightly neglected, interest in gardening.
In short, I have decided to build myself a Tiny Home on Wheels.
Should good fortune allow. (One would hate to jinx this plan.)
A disclaimer here- I have very minimal architectural knowledge and have never built anything more impressive than a timber chair in High School. That said, there are a few people in my world who do have some knowledge that I can harvest. Paired with the amazing technology that is the internet, there shouldn’t be too many holes that can’t be filled.
Now please be assured, this is not a whim that only occurred to me over the last few days. It’s an idea I have been toying with for a couple of years now, and for me, I think it’s a good fit.
As a twenty-four-year-old, living in the suburbs of Melbourne, Australia, I am not exactly in a position to buy a home, let alone some land. Certainly, I could rent my own place if I truly wished, but as I work within 7kms of my family home, it seems a little illogical, no matter how much I sometimes long for my own space.
However, I do have a great desire to build something myself, a little something to mark my twenty-four odd years on earth. A tiny home seems do-able and if it’s on wheels, a good option for the great unknown of ones twenties.
It will be an absolute challenge. But hopefully, a good one. A challenge that one day I view as completely overwhelming, the next as terribly exciting. If it works, it works! And if it doesn’t… well it doesn’t. But at least I gave it a shot.
So in conclusion, this is where I hope to document some of the progress. Hope, being the key word, as three posts a year is hardly a great track record. Nonetheless, we will give it another whirl and hopefully now that I have voiced this dream to the big, wide web, I will be less likely to chicken out because, well , that would be a tad embarrassing.
Wish me luck! I am going to need it.
