Anyway, I plan to do a final test on the plumbing, the electric, and then begin installing the second layer of insulation in the walls this coming weekend. I ordered an electric knife to cut the insulation sheets and then plan use it to carve the Thanksgiving Day turkey. Although the insulation company never called me back with a quote (which is not unusual in Florida), I learned that 200 cubic feet of foam insulation would cost about $700. I can use 4x8 sheets of insulation and have a similar R value at a much lower cost!

So the official weigh in day is October 25th -- after Mercury goes direct. I don't tempt Murphy or Mercury. I have a friend that is experienced in towing heaving loads who offered to drive. Additionally, I have had a new gate installed in the side yard so I can back the Tiny House Of Love (or an RV) into the side yard, thus avoid trying to back it into the back yard and straddling the septic tank.
In closing this blog entry, let me ask if you have ever felt love for a inanimate object? Well, I have fallen in love with my Tiny YELLOW House. It makes me smile to just look at it and I feel pride having built it by hand. I know it is built well and with lots of LOVE! All I need is a white picket fence and a English garden...
