My Tiny Vagabond ~ Joining the Village March 2021!
I told my friends I was "done" with tiny houses.
I promised I wouldn't buy or remodel any more.
But when I saw this 120 sq foot tiny house shell,
for sale, in Medford on one sunny Summer Day.....
I knew I'd have to break that promise.
The seller wasn't quite sure what to make of me.
I called her, went to the bank, got some cash, and headed her way.
I asked for recommendations which she thought was rude.
It took 4-1/2 hours to get there but over 5 hours to get home.
I drove only 45 mph the whole way home, with my flashers on.
It was the first time I'd towed my own home and it was stressful;
but worth it!!
The build quality was pretty good, and most of the features were solid.
But My Tiny Vagabond would need a bit of work before I could offer it as a rental option.
The floors aren't great but I love the color and it inspired the rest of the palette.
The entry features an area for hanging clothes and a basket for shoes.
The cabinets needed a bit of tweaking and some graphic design, for sure!
I am so happy with how well the coffee corner turned out.
And this queen-sized bed!
It's amazing and soooooo comfy.
Flanked with windows and countertops, it's great for sleeping OR lounging.
Where a bench seat once sat, now a workspace and refrigerator add
functionality that was sorely needed.
No propane in this tiny house!
For something a little different, I added an electric cooktop.
It works really well and stows away when not in use.
Guest's luggage stores easily under the bed and there is PLENTY of
under-counter storage area!
Even the garbage can found a perfect, out of the way spot, to hang out.
My Tiny Vagabond also features a cedar loo toilet and shower.
