Alysha St.Germain - Living in a Tiny House (by Respectful Revolution)

I really love the openess and airyness of this tiny home. Loving the wood paneling on the walls painted in white, gives it a really hand crafted but modern feel.

It’s cool to see a tiny house with kids living in it but I am interested to see how it would be when the kids are bigger and older, they all seem to sleep in the one bed and I can’t really work out how this tiny house could be changed/renovated to suit other than maybe having the two kids in the loft with twin beds and then the mother downstairs on a sofa bed style sleeping arrangement.

I’d love to see some more tiny houses with families that have older kids, I think it could totally work, maybe like bunk bed style sleeping areas with privacy curtains on a lower level for kids would be interesting to see.

Anyway I give this tiny house 7.5 out of 10 nookywoos

I was scared people would think my idea is too far fetched and won’t donate but I won’t know until I try so Treycomehere.tumblr.com has finally built up the courage to start a campaign for my idea Tiny Houses 4 Homeless.

Tiny Houses 4 Homeless is a better alternative than sleeping in a dirty over crowded shelter. With a tiny house each resident/family will feel like home. No more 2 day stays, we want our residents to stay atleast 6 months. Within the span of 6 months we want somebody to help you find a job and get an interview. Through donations we will have grooming and clothes ready for you to look presentable at interviews.

I’ve seen too many teenagers get kicked out for their parents not agreeing with their kids sexuality (especially in Atlanta), which I find extremely sad. So this shelter home is LBGT welcome. 18 and over. Single moms and fathers.

If you think this is a great idea please donate. I really want to get people off the street. For more info, like locations, budget, etc please go to http://bit.ly/2aksMtu

Donate Here: http://bit.ly/2aksMtu even if you don’t donate, Reblogs, likes, thoughts are much appreciated.

Yup!  Here we go again!  I have no idea how pregnant I am but that happened… again:

External image

Best I can tell is that I am between 4 and 12 weeks, that’s quite the large swath…  which is downright amazing to me, I know exactly when I got pregnant with Hazel because I was SICK immediately and ALL DAY.  I am definitely having different symptoms this go around.  Including those wild dreams you hear about, crazy and irrational food cravings and just a touch of ‘ucky’ in the afternoons, NOTHING like little miss H’s pregnancy.  I still don’t ‘get’  why some people claim to like being pregnant but I don’t ‘hate’ them for lying about it now either… so far things are pretty darn smooth…  Must be a boy :).

To handle the immediate question: No, we’re not moving out of the tiny house.  We ARE adjusting things to accommodate us better!   I get to go into this one knowing a little bit better ‘what kids need’ than the last so that is a big plus.  We are making some adjustments currently to make things a little more comfortable for the pregnancy.

Mainly, I am getting my king size bed back!! (I am currently sitting on it in my loft for the first time in over a year, SO excited!)  Hazel has just crawled out of her co-sleeper for months at this point and slept, mainly ON me… She’ll just span the gap until she has her own room in the extra two feet of comfy bed!  Don’t mind the mess, it is totally ripped apart currently as I am in the midst of a DEEP clean!

What was going to be a breeze got a little complicated, we were going to just swap out the mattresses but as I moved the mattress it smelled a little musty.  I looked and thought I saw mold.  I pulled up the floor board and saw a wet spot in the subfloor below… Total freak out.

I ended up ripping up my floor boards to see the damage only to find out in the end that the one little spot where I saw moisture was a ring of orange koolaid stain that happened when I was first pregnant with Hazel and hated the taste of water so I had to drink koolaid.  There was NO water damage.  All the mold I thought I saw was just dirt and feathers from my bedspread that had been collecting in the corners around the mattress.  So, no need to panic but now it’s nice to know things are working well and I have a brand new fresh subfloor and a very clean floor!  To handle the musty smell that just comes naturally having the mattress sit on the floor James and I designed a little frame for the mattress to sit on and still allow airflow below.  So now I will be sleeping in my UBER comfy king sized bed once more!  And Denver has his own comfy (9 inches of foam) bed to lay in, which he does, ALL. DAY. LONG.

Here are some fun shinanigans from our sleepover in the studio while we tore the tiny house apart yesterday!  Hazel’s smile is my favorite, goofball!

This week I will be going through the rest of the tiny house and giving it a DEEP cleaning and making sure things are holding up ok before we start our renovation, so that we can update anything we need to!  I’ve also been getting ideas together for Hazel’s room/baby nursery?  (maybe the first tiny house nursery, I’ve seen at least!).  I will definitely be doing some glow in the dark murals!  I am thinking this is the right paint?  Does anyone have experience with these?  I would love to know insider tips to make it awesome!

Lastly, my mom turned 29 again!  We all got together and went out to eat.  I dressed Hazel in this shirt and waited to see how long it took for them to notice:

Mom took three minutes, through a  hoodie mind you!  Dan and Jeff were about 20, Nate and Gia were at a disadvantage on seating arrangements but eventually saw it too! :)  Everyone is happy, most of all James and I.  Here is my wild and crazy mom being a good sport at dinner!

I hope you have all been having as much fun as we have!  All the best!

See This Vintage Airstream Transformed Into a Beautiful Getaway For Family of 5.
{source} This family of 5 redecorated a vintage airstream with materials from the home décor shop, Anthropologie. Lots of light and so inviting. Check it out here.

Along with her husband and three kids, Sarah Schneider renovated and redecorated a vintage Airstream they call ‘Wandering Star’.

Sarah has a self-described obsession with the clothing and accessories store Anthropologie.

She liked the Wandering Star pillow at Anthropologie so much that she named her trailer after it!

She says of her family’s trailer,

I wanted a home on wheels, where we will journey and see the country, to feel like home. I wanted it to be comfortable and inspiring, to evoke imagination, adventure, and creativity. I wanted it to feel wild and free.

The family’s  vintage Airstream decked out with string lights.

Sarah said that the Airstream was ‘dark’ inside when she first got it. She started the renovation by painting everything white right off the bat.

Sarah uses the sitting area as a dining room now.

Sarah bought all the drapes and had them cut to fit the Airstream’s wrap-around windows.

She installed an octagonal backsplash and butcher block counters in the kitchen area. The mirror on the wall adds even more light to the room.
