Welcome to my little ol' blog. I'll be upfront about it: I don't blog very often any more. If you found your way here because you read my book "Trailer Life," have a gander! But it's easier to keep up with me on Instagram or on my Facebook page. I have this long, drawn out theory on why I'm a terrible blogger, but that is a story for another day. Enjoy the ramblings of my life from the last 8 years or so.

More house pictures

Looking up under our porch...
Back of our house... gap in the middle will be french doors, with two windows on each side, and two windows on two other sides, for a total of 8 windows in the kitchen/dining area. Window up top shines into kitchen.
Standing just inside the kitchen from the french doors. The stairs are not in yet, and the metal cagey thing is still the fireplace. There is some temporary scaffolding/banisters up. From the back, once the fireplace is in you won't be able to see the front door, but it's fairly open. Two arched lead to bedroom area, other two lead to laundry room and to pantry.
Standing in pantry archway looking into the kitchen.
My dancing cage up in the loft... you didn't know I was that kind of girl, did you? Actually, this is a shot of the roof lines if you were standing at the stove area, looking to the loft. Looking at pictures of framing is weird, and it can be hard to visualize. I tried drawing in things, but it looked funky/bad. I want to play around with it so I can draw in stuff and see what it'll look like.
Ordered roofing material today


  1. WOW!!! I had no idea you were so far along. Go Ryan Go.

  2. This is so exciting!!! It has been so fun to watch.

  3. I think when we come visit we'll just camp on your porch. :) Its nice to see more shadows cast on your dirt. :)

  4. Looking good! One of my sisters stapled cardboard up in her "room" and moved in when the house my parents built was at this stage.

  5. Love the cardboard idea. Who needs drywall anyway? Seriously can't wait to see cabinets, doors, and windows go in. You must be getting excited!!

  6. Karrie! It is looking so good! I bet you are super excited to be getting so close.
