Billy said he was tired of opening up my blog and seeing more tiny home pictures. He can’t understand taking so long to make a decision. Well, he has a point, but we couldn’t really make the final move until we closed on the small house…which we did today.
We signed the papers at 10:30 and headed for Athens, where our park home will be built. The Riverview is a brand new plan conceived by Adam, one of the guys we’ve been working with at Recreation Resort Cottages in Athens. The first model is in the middle stages of construction. Tyler, who is another nice young man who has been helping us called Kip the other day and said he thought the construction was far enough along for us to get a pretty good idea of the size and layout. We have looked at so many models and floor plans, we pretty much know the ins and outs of the options and what we like and don’t like. I have noticed, that most of you readers have picked out your favorites, too. I think it’s kind of fun to get all confused and change my mind a million times.
Get ready to see the Ark of tiny homes.
It looks massive doesn’t it? One of the reasons it looks so big, is it has an attached 10′ x 17′ covered deck on the front end. We saw enough to know this is the one. It looks spacious because of the open layout and vaulted ceilings. It will look bright and cheerful because it has lots of windows. I will also be made bright and cheerful, because even I can keep 748 sq. ft. clean. It has one bedroom, one bathroom, and a kitchen and living room area separated by a counter long enough to seat four. It also has a movable island that can seat three, be used as extra counter space, or be moved out of the way. There is a large pantry in the kitchen and a good sized linen closet in the bathroom.
Our cabinets will be a little bit different design and there will be beams on the ceiling. The guy on the right is Tyler. He has taken good care of us. He and Adam are very knowledgeable and patient.
We are pleased with our plan and can’t wait to move into the Ark. After setting an appointment to finalize everything on Wednesday, we drove the twenty-five miles home and took some time to make our final decisions on the options and colors we want,
We’re looking at some options for our North Carolina tiny home. This one has a darling fireplace.
Everything is coming together. The buyers of the small house gave us a few days to pack up and move into our RV. Kip is still finalizing the plans for the RV port and garage and we still have more to pack. We have to get a second storage unit for the remaining boxes and the furniture we decided to keep. All will be fine if I don’t get picked tomorrow to be on a jury. Yup…I have to show up in beautiful downtown Athens tomorrow at 8:30 for Jury duty.
