Murdo Girl…Our tiny home adventure cont.

Good morning! We are having a lazy Saturday morning here in RVville. We found out yesterday that we’ll be here until Tuesday afternoon. When the floor guys tore out the wood floor, they found tile underneath that had to come up. They also had to smooth out the concrete a little. There is no hyperventilating going on here. We’re staying busy and we’ve had great weather the past couple of days.

Here I am kicking back. Love my new GW slippers.

After a good nights sleep. The fur babies needed a nap.

I told you, yesterday, about the tiny house in the rv park. Jim and Mary Ann invited us in to take a look at it. (Maybe they were tired of looking out their windows and seeing us standing outside staring at their house.)

They had it custom built 2.5 years ago and they love it! I didn’t take a lot of pics because I didn’t want to appear rude.

They have an electric fireplace on their deck. They told us it keeps them toasty while they sit out on the deck every morning drinking coffee and watching the ducks on the pond.

Mary Ann is an artist. She has her studio up in the loft area.

Jim and Mary Ann told us they researched tiny houses and builders for two years before they decided on Diamond Park Homes. They are a custom TH builder located in Alba, TX, which is about an hour’s drive from here. We loaded up the dogs and after a quick lunch stop in Athens we headed for Alba. 

Since they don’t cookie cut models, they didn’t have one to show us, but we got a tour of the ones they had under construction. They had just delivered eight finished TH’s to their owners and suggested we stay in touch so we could come and see these units when they were nearing completion. The lady who showed us around was a wealth of information. Between Jim and Mary Ann, and Diamond Park Homes, we have learned a lot.


I forgot to mention, Jim and Mary Ann said the highest their electric bill has been is $35 dollars for heating and cooling.

By the time we left Alba, it was time to head back and meet our friends, Pat and Jerry for dinner at Applebee’s…yum!

It was a good day in the adventures of Kip and Mary! Today is laundry day. I bet you can’t wait to read all about it tomorrow. Maybe we’ll have some time to check out some lots.

    What an interesting time in your life. Those little houses look nice and economical. Downsizing is hard to do but I am sure you and Kip will handle it fine. Cannot wait to read about your adventures.
