My humble quest to build La Petite Maison!

Tuesday, May 20, 2014

Thank You

Many Tiny House builders will tell you that building a house takes a village, and I would like to give credit to those that helped me. Many of these people put in 12-hour-days and on top of that were my go to people if I had a problem. So with a heart filled with love, and lungs filled with gratefulness: thank you, thank you, thank you.

My two uncles, Goose Odom, my BFF Ella, The knowledge of all other tiny housers, Everyone at home depot, and Ikea for the majority of my interior decorations.


  1. I just stumbled upon your story on the daily mail UK site and I loved it. You'll also be moving not too far from where I live in Virginia. Anyway, I love that you completed the home and all the reasons for doing so. I think you're an inspiration for young people and proved a lot of good use can come out of small hands like yours…and we're not talking about texting! Keep on dreaming and building. You're something quite special. Most of all, I am sorry for your loss. I know your father would be proud and now you'll always have a little piece of him to retreat to!

  2. I read your story on CNN a few moments ago and wanted to let you and your family know that you truly are an inspiration and a remarkable young woman. You have great things ahead of you, and your father is proud of you. Of that I have no doubt. Keep striving. Keep building. Great things are possible even in small tiny places.
