House with a Hat

On a quick trip to the farm yesterday I threw a tarp on the house’s roof and lashed it down with a bunch of bungees. It looks like we’re going to be in for quite an extended rain storm so I figured I better get up there to try and protect what I’ve done do far. Ironically those old pallets seemed in great shape for being out in the rain for so long already. I hope to have some kind of roofing in hand on my next trip to the farm so I can get past this major milestone.

Katie also got to spend a few hours with her grandparents and walk out in the muddy field to pick a few early organic radishes. The farmer that works the land did something new this year and instead of planting a cover crop he planted carrots, radishes, bok choy , and Swiss chard for seed. I guess the market for organic seeds is doing well.

  1. slow going eh? Life gotten too complicated? More designing and blogging than building?

  2. Dear Tiny Home Brother,

    I applaud your efforts, yet I am looking at your posts and seeing crop dusting going on while your taking pictures and a tractor spraying behind your beautiful child.. Get the hell away from such a toxic environment and build somewhere else. What good is it to live simply if you can’t simply live due to health conditions being around toxic agriculture. Wake up!

    NAMASTE, J
