Look what my wonderful husband made for me…a writing room!
Well, we already had the little room over on the side of the Noah House, but it wasn’t being used for much. We had thought it would be a fun, tiny, room for Luc, but he declared it too [...]
We have completely, and thoroughly, moved in, FINALLY, to the Noah House!
That is to say, we haven’t moved out of the yurt, we’re just…spreading. And in case you don’t know what I am talking about, here is the beginning of the story of recycling a tiny house, the tiny house [...]
We are in the process of moving into the Noah House. I don’t mean moving out of the yurt, just adding the Noah House as another room in our weird, Tiny House Compound. As I mentioned here, Paul finished the interior trim last weekend and, although there is still a punch list of [...]
Today Paul finishes the interior of the Noah House! We’re so excited. The paper will come off the walnut floors, the tools and sawdust will be removed, and we’ll bust a bottle of champagne on the deck. Well, okay, probably not bust it. But I might have one of my
We floored the yurt with recycled oak flooring. We paid $800 dollars for 800 square feet of the stuff (its sells for $3-$5 / square foot, new), and since the yurt wasn’t ready for it, we lived in our old farmhouse with metal bound bundles of it filling our living room knee deep for about [...]
After taking a day off for the big snow, the guys were back at work for their fifth day recycling our new, tiny house (see the last few posts for details if you are new to the story). They arrived just about the time I was going out to the barn. Here is Fancy saying [...]
Continuing on in the amazing process of recycling an entire house. Here we are after the guys came back to work after lunch.
Monty started working inside, making the door between the two sections, putting up the loft, putting in the electrical outlets, etc, while Matt and [...]
After taking the weekend off, the carpentry crew was back at eight this morning, slamming it into gear with their incredibly loud music and their hammers and full on get-it-done work ethic. I’ve been staring through the window in awe at their industry.
They’d been here about 45 minutes when it looked like this.
The guys brought the Noah House to its new home the morning of the third day. This the first load, pulling up to the yurt at 8:30 in the morning. Be glad there isn’t a picture of pre-coffee me, staggering outside to answer questions about where to put stuff. Scary.
The crew was hard at work on the second morning. Here is what it looked like when we went over to the old site.
Here is the roof. Just a pile of stuff.
Then we came back about four hours later and the whole house was just [...]

Primary to navasana. Chatted with Luc about his favorite show for the second half, so breathing and focus were zilch. But mama/little boy time is worth it.

- "Dusi's Wings" April, 2003. . . . "One thing fantasy can do for us is to give shape to the mysterious in the world; another is to make emotional yearning concrete. The early sections of "Dusi's Wings" do just that...there was a strong grasping towards the spiritual in fantasy here that was very promising, and I look forward to reading more by Lassiter." --review, Tangent Online.
