I have realized that this tiny house project of mine will never happen unless I hire someone to get it started. Having never built anything before and being single with a baby, it's a mammoth to take this on myself. So I'm splashing my hard-earned cash into the coarse, steady hands of two German carpenters. Starting next week, Jan and Christian will build what I call the skeleton of my house - basically the floor plate, wall studs, and the arched roof trusses. They tell me it will be built within that week so expect lots of pictures soon! After they're done, the project will once again come to a halt as I won't have another penny to put in for quite some time. But we'll get there, eventually.

I bought a tiny kitchen table at auction yesterday! It's from the 1880's with it's original paint (not much of it) still left (104 x 106 cm when folded out). I love it. Why anyone buys furniture at IKEA, when you can find original, beautiful pieces with history and soul for less, is beyond me. This will fit perfectly in my tiny flat, until the wagon is built.
