It’s 5:30 a.m. in the tiny house. The rooster and I have risen, if not the sun. Around the property, the owners and their apartment tenant have been packing to vacate the farmhouse. Despite my lightening client roster, I’ve been busy with a stream of tiny details--installing long-awaited base boards, finger holes in the toe-kick drawers, working on the ad campaign—drewslist, craigslist, flyers, postcards... Even prioritizing takes time. By 10:00 last night, I’d had 2,700 views on tinyhouselistings.com. The email inquiries have begun. Little wonder that I fell instantly through my pillow to sleep, despite one of my favorite skies—tatter of dark and light-haloed clouds under a shadow-chasing moon, conifers pinking the visual perimeter. At times like these you can’t see everything with your eyes open, anyway. Objects glow and shapeshift. You feel your way along. Rest. Get moving.
Climbing toward daylight, what’s next on the big agenda? I’ve been talking and blogging about my life in micro for some time now, generating almost as many questions as I answer, it seems. Since there’s no experience like the direct kind, I’ve decided to let the greater public in on a little something. If you’ve been dying to peek through the window on my tiny world, here’s your big chance. It’s time for a Wee Open House. So without further ado, I'm pleased to announce the following:
Date: August 31, Labor Day Weekend
Time: 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Place: 4785 E Harbor Road, Freeland (behind the greenhouse)
Who's invited?: YOU
