Just Married Tiny House: What Would You Do For Love?

One of our readers and somebody who I got to meet at the Tiny House Fair in Vermont last month just sent me photos of her “just married” tiny house which is so awesome.


While I was there I also got to create a video of Elizabeth’s tiny house which was on site. But anyway, I’ll let Susan explain below. Thank you so much for sharing this with us Susan!

Hi Alex,

We met briefly at Yestermorrow’s Tiny House Fair. I mentioned that my wife Emily and I had just married in April and promised to send photos of our Just Married Tiny House sign. Here they are. 

The heart in the upper window has an interesting back story. Every Valentines Day, the Valentines Day Bandit strikes, going around downtown Montpelier in the middle of the night plastering these hearts everywhere (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentine_Phantom). We wake up to a world awash with red! These hearts have spread around central VT and many people and businesses have them in their windows.

Take care,
Susan

PS. Thank you for hosting the Tiny House Talk. It’s fantastic! I’ve been a fan for a long time.

It looks so beautiful! Well done. The windows are great and you got to love the heart up in the window for the loft.

    I hope she eventually sends photos of the front end of the house, and the door! I’d love to see more of the exterior!

    And I love the siding – it’s the perfect scale for a tiny house.

    I like the concept of tiny houses. The affordability and resource saving are my favorites. But if many people build structures in open beautiful landscape. What will be the landscape for everyone? How much commuting and roads will be needed? How about pooling resources. Build a strong building that will stand up to high winds and flooding. Then each could build their tiny house in the building. Sharing utilities for economies of scale. Then the land around could be left raw and open for everyone to enjoy. The pioneering tract for Humans will have to be different than individual covered wagons. Much as I revere the individual. Maybe the individual can flourish more in the mind than a physical place.

    Happy 4th to you and your girlfriend, Alex! (sorry, I forgot her name!)
    Best,
    Gloria

    Gorgeous house, would love to see more when the inside is done. Congratulations to the happy couple! And happy 4th to our US neighbours from Canada.

    Congratulations, Susan & Emily!
    I’m joining the crowd to see more photos of your lovely little home, inside and out. I, too, love your choice of siding and I especially am delighted with your bay window matching the storage space on the tongue of the trailer.
    Please send more sharings!
    xoxo

    the exterior is so beautiful. more like what I hope to one day build than anything I have come across thus far. And I’m inspired to see a same sex couple in a tiny house! 🙂 thanks for blazing the trail! I’m gonna be there someday. Even if he makes me park my house in the back yard because he refuses to live small haha. If anybody has tips for college students. let me know. Thanks again Susan!

    I noticed he built over the wheel wells. That the legal limit for road use, so the roof extends past the legal limit. Be sure not to get caught if you plan on moving it. I thought about going this route when designing mine. I figured it was not worth the risk so I built mine inside.

      True about the issues with the legal limit on roads, but it seems that over-width is easier to get a permit for than over-height. I went with almost 10 feet across on my roof ~ I will only be moving it once, too.
      It makes a huge difference in the aesthetic as well as working better for passive solar and rain protection, so I went for it! 😀
      I too, love that siding! It looks gorgeous!
