One month ago, we parked our house in its new location. This past weekend, we finally moved in.

We’d already hooked up the water and propane, so spent the weekend plugging in to the main house and setting up our internet — both of which required hundreds of feet of cables and some trench digging. All you do is plug in, and you’re set! It’s so easy! I read this over and over again on tiny house blogs, as if you’re simply plugging in a really big toy into a power outlet.

Our solar installation is still up in the air, and we’re working with a local company to finalize our setup. This pending solar stuff aside, all is well, and it’s great to be moved in.
