The Luxury Tiny Home has finally arrived!!
Yesterday, instead of focusing on what could have been a lonnnng day of waiting, we worked, we cleaned, researched which meal service we’re going to order and we popped champagne at lunch time!
The day flew by and before we knew it, 6pm had rolled around and the tiny home was just miles down the road...
We anticipated issues with Mike (owner of Tiny House Chattanooga and the deliverer of our tiny home) turning into our property -
It's a sharp turn with trees, stone walls and iron gates in the way...
But he navigated it like he's done this a million times (thankfully, he kind of has).
In no time at all, Ava the tiny home had meandered down the long drive of our farm, and found her place at the back corner of the property.
Learning about solar panels, inverters and 30 vs 50 amp plugs was a bit daunting for me - I listened in, but fully intend on googling or bothering Mike, Wilhelm or my dad (who were all quite enthused about these elements) when I have a questions.
I was too tired to learn an entirely new language last night - and that's what it sounded like.
My dear friend Becca was here for move-in day and she mentioned how interesting it was to see a couple tour their new home and not only be inspecting and enjoying each element... but needing to learn how to "operate" their new space, as well!
The learning curve is steep, honestly.
There's a lottttt we don't know - but we'll figure it out.
In all honesty, it does feel a bit overwhelming, but the excitement is stronger than the worry - so that’ll carry us as we navigate the newness!
As clouds filled the sky and evening approached, Becca and I let my family & Mike handle the last few this' and thats', and we went to pick up dinner.
By the time we got back, my mom, dad and grandma had left for their respective homes - and Becca, Mike, Wilhelm and I rested and replenished with hot wings.
Wilhelm and I had planned to bring an air mattress over (we don't have our actual mattress yet) but the exhaustion of the day (and the months and months filled with endless decision-making, followed by waiting and waiting) had caught up to us.
We wished the tiny home sweet dreams, turned the lights out and locked the door and headed to our old home for one more night of rest before move-in is official.
