My humble quest to build La Petite Maison!

Quick Update

From Mama to La:

So much going on, so much progress, so little time left!! We are racing the clock and the calendar; the tiny house house conference is upon us, and we are in the final push.

Some quick pix.

Loft ceiling with interior siding:

First wall for the bathroom:

Since these pictures were taken we have nearly finished the interior siding and trim and are getting ready to install the bathtub and build walls, stairs and kitchen counters.

It has been a little over a year since we started the build, a year tomorrow since La's papa was killed in a car accident, and just over a year and a half since La started to draw her blueprints.

I never knew a year could simultaneously go by so quickly and so slowly.

We will try to be more diligent in our updates. In the interim, please enjoy La's TEDTalk from last year. It is short and sweet. Almost like her, except she is nearly to her mama's height.

Love and gratitude to all of you who have been following us on our journey.


  1. Looks like it's coming along nicely. Where are you going to put it once it's done?

  2. We are not quite sure where LPM's destination is at this point. La had the idea of using it as a college dorm, but we are at least four years away from that, so we are still seeking!
