Tiny House Tuesday // Her First Snow

Tiny House on the Hill's First Snow

Okay, so it was more of an ice event. Still, it was a milestone for the Tiny House on the Hill.   In 2018, we've seen her bare naked, dressed in walls, and covered in wrap. But this is her first clothing of white. She wears it well, don't you think? Before the first line was drawn on the tiny house plans, my mind ventured into the future, imagining a space the size of a twin bed tucked...

20 Simple Ways to Offer the Love of Christ this Christmas + Starbucks Giveaway

My paternal grandmother, Alberta Scott, aka Ma-ma, crafted the art of memory-making. Every December certain things took place in her home. The smooth sounds of Bing Crosby and Johnny Mathis spun on the console upstairs while boiled custard simmered on the stove. A twelve-inch ball of Styrofoam decked out in olive-green velvet hung over the same doorway for as long as I can remember. And the...

Tiny House Tuesday // With A Little Help From My Friend

I mean, how hard could it be to install a metal roof? We were convinced it wouldn't be that hard⏤even with a roof that points to the sky like an arrow. Brian calls it a 14/12 pitch. I call it crazy steep. Over the last several weeks, we'd framed, lifted beefy plywood via sheer willpower, and purchased more nails than groceries. Laying galvanized metal on top of twelve weeks of work felt like...

The Day Eavesdropping Inspired This Titus 2 Woman to Tears

I didn't intend to eavesdrop. My sole purpose for being at the The Black Bear Coffee Co. in Hendersonville NC was to write while Brian shopped for vintage vinyl finds, five miles down the road. On the cafe table, three essentials: laptop, a fragrant cup of non-fat goodness, aka lavender latte, and plenty of napkins. I'm messy that way. As I tapped the keys to the rhythm of the music, the...

Name Your Fears For What They Are and See What Happens When You Do

I've never been a fan of anything that slithers. Having lived in the burbs for most of my life where the outdoors consisted of crumbling asphalt and the occasional stray cat, I wasn't sure what country life would bring. I know what it brought our first night⏤a colorful snake coiled up next to the steps in our garage. That went over well. (But the swarm of honey bees that swept across our...

Tiny House Tuesday // The Tarp of It All

Funny how hurricanes force you to re-think everything. We were one sheet of underlayment away from having the base of the roof covered before we left for our beach vacation. Apparently, Hurricane Florence decided to follow us home. Before we knew it, forecasters were predicting sustained winds up to 50 mph and possibly 12" of rain. This could be the first test of the Tiny House on the Hill's...

Welcome to the Tiny House on the Hill // Because Mustard Seed Moments Matter

I never saw it coming⏤this dream becoming a reality. Only months ago, while enjoying breakfast with dad at Panera, I shared a story from the internet of a teenager who built his own tiny house. My excitement must've been contagious because he inspired me to get started on my own tiny space. The best part was his willingness to come help whenever possible. And then there was my hubby, who...

Tiny House Tuesday // Framed Glory {& An Exciting Announcement!}

There it was in all its glory. One moment, I'm handing Brian tools and the next, I catch sight of the glorious sky framed for a private viewing.     Working on the tiny house this summer has offered moments of both victory and defeat. At times, it's easy to become bombarded by the details of the build. A break is needed and mine is taken in the doorway-to-be because mountain breezes...
