Ava and I have moved into our new home. We did most of the work in one big push on Sunday, with a lot of help from Erin and Shane. It was a solid day of hard labor and I’m still trying to catch up on rest.

Ava has been working hard getting everything sorted out. The bedroom and bathroom are all tidy, and the storage closet is full of neatly arranged shelves and stacks of bins. We have almost no living room furniture and the office is nothing but heaps of books and boxes, but it’s a good start. It feels happy and homey. Ava seems to be just about glowing with contentment.

The shop project is on the edge of success at last. We’ve collected the money, set up a business account, and signed the lease: now we are just waiting for the landlord’s EFT to go through so he can give us the keys. We should be able to start moving in on Saturday.


  1. Yay! Can’t wait to see the new place(s) :)

  3. Do you guys need furniture? we have two nice pieces we need to get out of tinyhouse. One is the espresso wood office center, with computer desk and whatnot that closes up pretty. It was the piece of furniture my television/bar was in. The other is a tall glass-doored cabinet from Ikea. I can send you pics if you’re interested.
