Our house made it to Portland in one piece!!! Can you believe it?! I couldn’t until I saw it with my own eyes so I thought I’d share the details of this glorious day!
Prep day fun:
To take our minds off of the house being delivered, Tish and I took a nice bike ride on the Banks-Veronia Trail Monday morning. It was a beautiful day!
….then the house showed up!!!
Words can’t express how thankful I am to everyone that helped us get through the “first stage” of building in Middletown….Kevin and Kim thank you for allowing us a place to build and for being so gracious about all of the changes/delays we had! To my cousins Josh and Justin (Heather) for making my birthday build such a success. And of course to my amazing parents Joane and Charley Carpenter for welcoming us (back) into their home to live for 9ish months….and for still letting our cats live there for a bit longer 🙂
My Dad and his buddy Dan are both some of the most amazing men I know. Thank you for teaching me everything I know about building, for calming me down when I thought I’d never make it through, for having an immense amount of patience when listening to my worries and taking my directions despite my having no experience with any aspect of building, for giving me lots of laughs and sound advice while we built this beast together, and for taking this project on as if it were your own! I could have never done this without both of you, and I feel a bit lost now that you’re not here, I have a feeling everything from here on out will take much longer to complete.
Tish and I are still trying to figure out who we can wrangle in to help us in Portland, but for now it will just be us, our pup and the other awesome tiny home builders at Green Anchors!
