Tiny Blue Devil Continues To Grow

Tiny House Update – 10.25.10

Another weekend gone and another Tiny House project marked off our 'To Do list.' When we first purchased our 30' trailer we knew immediately that it would need new tires, a new jack, and some stabilizers. What we didn't know was where to get any such parts. The tires...
