Working full time whilst attempting to develop my tiny home ideas into proper building plans has been far more challenging than I anticipated. Finding time, and then using that time efficiently has been inconsistent, with some weeks passing with less than a few hours dedicated to the project. To say the least, it’s tricky to balance.
Or I should say, was tricky, because as of the Tuesday before last, I commenced part-time work.
When condensing your life into a 12 square meter space, it’s inevitable that you will have to make some compromises and question even the ‘essentials.’ As a regular home cook, a proper stove is something I have always considered necessary, but is it? I have seen many tiny home dwellers go without, only using a two or three stovetop burner to prepare their meals. That said, there are limits to what can be prepared stove top style, and baked goods are one of the trickier edibles to adapt.
When researching windows for tiny homes, tempered glass is a term which you will immediately come across. Heat treated, or chemically treated, tempered glass is nicknamed ‘safety glass’ for its ability to fracture into small blunt pieces.
[You are likely familiar with its broken form if you live in an area with sheltered glass bus stops. Or rather, did live in an area with sheltered glass bus stops. Before the footpath sparkled with pretty, fractured chunks of glass.]
