Due to a run in with the code office, my Tiny House was called into question. I was told to that my house had to leave my property, as they did not understand the concept of the Tiny House. After months of research and a very tearful back and forth I negotiated to keep my home, and install plumbing in a separate building. I had already been approved to have a composting toilet, but it was a verbal approval, which was easily forgotten. I was forced to put in my own septic system as well as bath house with full plumbing, meeting the standards of a dwelling space. After recovering from this harsh blow to my simple way of life, my father and I seized this opportunity to learn how to use a backhoe, put in electric to my already existing Tiny House, as well as embrace the fun of building! The project of digging, installing electric, installing a septic tank, and building the bath house began last year in May of 2015. We hope to be finished with the project May of 2016. Wish us luck!
