Parked in the Snow

We ordered our house in November 2008, and it was delivered in early December of that year.

That winter turned out to be the snowiest season in twenty-five years in my hometown, and we experienced our very first white Christmas. The ground was frozen solid, which made it almost impossible to finish prepping the site, and immediately after the house was parked, it snowed. Chris works for a shipping company, and he was busy working around the clock trying to get holiday packages delivered in the winter weather. Snow was on the ground for the next three weeks, and we had around two feet of the white stuff at one point. This is highly unusual in our corner of the country.

It was pretty much the worst time ever to have our park model delivered!

We camped out on a mattress in the loft on Christmas Eve 2008 so we could wake up in our own home on Christmas morning. Then we went back to my parents' house until February when we finished getting all the utilities hooked up and finally moved in for good.


  1. Oh my goodness, your house is adorable! My husband and I love to watch the tiny house shows! It's so neat to read through your blog and see how you make it work!
