Tiny House Adventures in Spring

Just came across this blog of a couple here in CT that are building their own Tiny Home.
It’s so cool that they can tow their home like a camper but it looks like a house instead of a camper once it’s parked.
It’s been a bream of mine to get an RV & travel across the country even before I discovered the internet & now have friends in literally all across the country to go visit.
The Tiny Home would be nice to have as a traveling home & pick up a piece of land in warmer climate to go settle on during the winter months when we get older & the idea of having all that snow to deal with wouldn’t be so nice…
I plan on following their blog to see how they progress as they build & compare costs to just buying a RV instead.

Our Tiny House Construction Since 2013

Hello everyone,

Our tiny house is not even finished on the inside yet but it has already visited three different corners of Connecticut – Fairfield, Putnam and Westerly.  Towing it was a lot of fun and we are very relieved to realize how easy it is.  If you are here because you have seen us on the road, please do not hesitate to tell us. 🙂

So, why were we driving around Connecticut in a big circle anyway?

On Saturday, April 25th,  we met a group of people from Tumbleweed Tiny House Company’s workshop at a Service Center along I-95 in the Southwestern part of the state.  Towing our tiny house for the very first time was connected to an enormous variety of emotions. The first ones were fear and tension because we were afraid of making mistakes, damaging our house or even getting pulled over by the police…

Sad State of Affairs

This is one of those posts both personal & political…

A dear friend is going through that mixed emotions of secondary empty nester as her adult son leaves the state.I say secondary because our adult children were already out of our nests but living here in the state only a town or two & a phone call & less than hours drive away…

We’re proud of our children who have grown up into young men & women that are making their own ways in this world; but we are heart broken that our young men & women are finding it so bad in our state that they are having to move out of CT in order to find better paying jobs in states that aren’t robbing them blind in taxes.

Like I said this both personal & political & now for my rant as it makes me angry that so many people merely vote on the party line without thinking about why they are voting nor asking if what the pipe dreams being promoted by the democrats is in fact actually possible – wake up people nothing is free someone has to pay for it in money & time & energy & at a certain point we run out of people to take money from to give to those who are merely taking without earning.

The rich started leaving our state years ago because they can afford to move anywhere so once the income tax was put in place those people just changed the location of where they claimed as their state of domicile.

The past 4 businesses have been leaving at an increasing rate & along with those businesses good paying jobs & tax paying families. With each major business closing or leaving the state that has affected smaller supporting businesses around the state. Less businesses = less jobs = less taxing families to pay the state’s increasing spending which makes the state increase the taxes on the rest of us to make up the difference instead of cutting spending.

So our children must leave the state they’ve grown up in to find good paying jobs & affordable homes to purchase for their families. Sad to see them go we send them off because we know that in other states they will have a better chance for success than if they were to stay here in CT.

Will we see our grandchildren for more than 2 weeks out of the year? Sadly it’s not likely with our children moving out of the region to find better lives. It makes us angry that our children have to go out of the state to find a decent job & affordable homes to purchase all because the career elite democrats refuse to listen to us taxpaying citizens & only care about making their friends richer by increasing our taxes to pay for the sweetheart deals they’re making.

Are You Taxed Enough Already?
