Tiny House on the Move!!


The house delivery looks like it is going to be in the morning instead.  Sigh.


I received this text from the driver about an hour ago:

Sorry for the delay. I thought you might like this for an answer:

 My house will be here TONIGHT!!!  I'm having a house arrival party - obviously short notice, but if you want to come, email me and I'll keep you updated with details.  There will be champagne...

My house is officially on its way from LA to Dallas!  A transport company picked it up this evening from Daniel's school and it slipped away into the darkness...

Isn't it the cutest thing you've ever seen?  And she's wearing a new front door, courtesy of the best finish carpenter I know, Daniel Bell of Daniel Bell Construction.

I really wanted to get banners on the house prior to travel, but I just didn't get my act together.  In the alternative, if you see this house traveling along I-10 (or a similar route) in the next 2-3 days, please leave a comment here with the date/time and location.

And please send this post to anyone you know who may be along that route - let's try to track it's progress!

For those of you who are new to this blog, here is what my Four Lights tiny house will look like when it's completed:

I am nervous - that's my baby, being towed across the country....


  1. Take care and Blessings on your journey :)

  2. I just learned that my house is just outside of Phoenix! The driver is just getting on the road for a full day.

    1. I'm estimating that the driver will take I20 from El Paso to Dallas. I'm keeping the camera at my side when I drive Abilene to Dallas on I20 Tuesday afternoon coming back from the build site, just in case...

  3. Craig, thank you!! A photo would be amazing! He will be easy to

  4. Sooooo my driver has been "incommunicado" since yesterday morning. I've texted him twice - he said texting is best for him. He also said he doesn't text or talk on the phone when he's driving and I appreciate that, but gosh! Doesn't he need fuel, or to sleep, or to make a pit stop? And then maybe text me with his ETA? I've staving off a mild form of panic...

  5. How exciting!!! Yes a photo would be cool to see :-) I saw a house going down Washington street here this morning, however, it was in 4 chunks!!

    1. LOL nit exactly the same - or, if it is a tiny house, it must have run into trouble...
