First, thanks to NPR, Make Magazine, Readymade Magazine, Tinyhouseblog, Tinyhousetalk, Tinyhousedesign, and Hackaday.com for all their support- “Tiny Yellow House” episode #1, has now acquired 35,000+ views in only 3 months! And we’re still in need of a few super-affordable ad-placers for 2 upcoming episodes that we blew alot of coin on. As little as $150 to be ad-featured FOREVER!

 As for another sort of fund-garnering: Lets face it, getting rid of crud (or TRYING to/downsizing) is imperative to tiny house living. Beyond that, acquiring necessary funds for your dream cabin, or next mini-cabin project (in my case) is always made a little more realistic, with the loot you’ll net from a good old fashioned yard sale (or “tag sale” as we called then in CT).  My wife and I are currently semi-gutting our “Tiny Yellow House” for just such an event. We hope to get some neighbors on board too- strength n’ sales in numbers!

Enter Melissa Massello of Shoestring Magazine, and her advice in the game… http://www.shoestringmag.com/budgeting/bargain-babe-hosting-your-own-garage-sale#comment-633  A cool article from a continually informative/clever magazine and blog/site.

As for tiny homes, and/or photos to drool over…I leave you with this…

Thanks for the love and shout-out, Deek! We’re on the same wavelength today: was thinking of you and WNTN this morning on the phone with Garen at Frugal Yankee. ‘Tis the season for yard sales (I had one in March — a collaboration with three friends — and we each netted over $200! Not bad for a Saturday’s work.🙂 Must catch up again soon!
