There is just one more box to check before we make the financial commitment and the tiny house idea crosses the line from concept to reality. And that is to spend some time living in a tiny house (two nights counts, right?).

Season One readers will recognise this one -...

Building a tiny house without having ever been inside a tiny house seems like a bad idea. The movement has been around long enough that there are tiny houses all over the place, so you can probably find a friendly owner or an AirBnB for rent somewhere near you (we did...

Armed with Sketch Book and SketchUp, we have boldly galloped towards a design that we think will work for us. There is a lot of value in the iteractive process! The Tiny House we build will look nothing like our earliest sketches, which isn't particularly surprising.

So, Season 2 got a little derailed by the whole Covid-19 situation, and us getting caught up in trying (a couple of times!) to buy a house. More on that in a minute.

The End.

The end of one adventure and the start of another. It is no secret that we fell in love with Tasmania when we visited. Now we have returned to the island, to work and live, hopefully forever.

To get here we put a lot of kilometres under Gary's wheels, here is th...

This week we haven't done too much besides lots of driving. We didn't explore magnetic island, we didn't visit the Whitsundays or Airlie Beach, we didn't visit Yeppoon, Fraser Island or any of the Glasshouse Mountains. We haven't snorkelled or dived on the Great Barrie...
