    Framing/block laying are the easy parts.

    Did you get a picture of the basement excavation? Want to make sure they didn’t forget to do it?

    No- the realtor just sent this one.

    The garage sits on a slab.

    You can see in the back how the foundation is graduated down the slope. That is the basement walk out part.

    I mean- if they didn't do it- they would have a big problem putting in the furnace and plumbing in this tiny house! LOL!

    Great to see things coming together for you! You might want to try Nextdoor.com to find some packing help. There are recommendations from real people in your neighborhood for just about anything you need. Take a look ... There are also moving companies that will hold your things on the truck including overnight. If you haven't already hired a moving company, shop for one that can accommodate you, or if you have, ask if they provide this service.

    Well, now that you mentioned it. LOL! We have not yet seen our home since just the footings back in August, but we will be going up Thanksgiving week and will finally see it in person. It is small and modest and simple.

    The realtor says the cabinets have been delivered and the priming paint was put on inside. The tub and shower were installed. Supposedly the driveway is going in. They still have a ways to go. The builder has extended the contract out to 12/31 as a closing. but I think it will be after that. 74473989_10218896807484279_9026169326423506944_n.jpg 75100188_10218896807884289_72145318744948736_n.jpg 73370560_10218896807404277_1434735118013956096_n.jpg

    Yes- that little room is the kitchen and the other is the living room. 20191024_121607.jpg 20191024_121630.jpg

    Actually, I like all of it. At the moment I am staying with my older sis who lives in a senior community in Gilroy, CA. (Just south of San Jose.) They are stand alone cottages on shared gardens land. The one across the dtreet is for sale at $545,000 if anyone is interested.

    We had a vaulted ceiling put in the living room, but actually all the ceilings in the rest of the house are 9 feet standard.

    Remember, these lots are tiny as back in the day they used to be tent and trailer lots. They are technically leased lots but no rent forever- just $100 at closing and that is it. There are a couple of larger models (but still no more than 1500 square feet) but their footprints extend upward- meaning a second floor. Ours is 1106 square feet. Plus the walk out basement. Plus the farmers porch and plus the garage.

    Here is a photo of the backyard so you can see just how small the lot is. I am not kidding when I say postage stamp size. The back is 12 feet wide by 30 feet in length. LOL! This is so comical for people like us who lived on 10 1/2 acres most of our lives.

    That is the walk out basement door and windows right there.

    There is an outdoor pool (unheated) and clubhouse with a fireplace, kitchen and billiards. We can walk to the boardwalk and MS MT Washington, which I intend to get season passes for. I will use the money I save in maintenance fees when we divest ourselves of one of our timeshares for that pleasure. And we can occasionally day use our other timeshare's facilities if we want since it is in NH- indoor and outdoor heated pools, sauna and gym, though it is a bit far (1 hour away) to do most of the time.

    I absolutely love it.
    I suspect you are going to enjoy how freeing it is to have "less". I know I have.

    A true downsizing house. Easier to clean, also.

    I believe once you move in it will feel bigger then you think. It is bigger then I imagined. Looks very nice.

    Years ago I had a small condo with a vaulted ceiling in the living room. It made the room feel so much larger. I think you will like it...
