Last Valentine's Day weekend (2014), Kacey and I camped along the beautiful Big Sur coast. Just 90 minutes away from our house in Monterey, our camp site was a bluff overlooking the Pacific ocean. We watched the sunset over the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Without saying as much, we each thought, "How will we ever top this?"
This Valentine's Day weekend, Kacey and I drove to Portland, Oregon to pick up a 24' trailer. Now, I know what you're thinking. Camping along the ocean to picking up a big-a** trailer. Hmmm, you definitely didn't top last year's Valentine's. Oh, but we did.
Kacey and I are going to build a tiny house. Instead of a traditional foundation, it is built on a trailer, and by virtue of being on a mobile foundation, it bypasses property taxes and most zoning laws. (Cha-ching!)
This is the first tiny house either of us have build (blanket forts don't count, we were sad to learn) and so far, we've identified the following five steps. We have accomplished all five.
Step 1: Buy a trailer.
Step 2: Pick up the trailer.
Step 3: Bring the trailer back home.
Step 4: Park the trailer in it's first semi-permanent location.
Step 5. Freak out.

|Drumroll please... our trailer!|
