Ramp Redo!

My ramp stain was one of the first things I did on my Tiny abode. Followed Directions, and it didn't hold up well.
I needed to redo it all. As I was planning it, I realized I could paint (stain really) the Logo on the ramp before I stained it!

Lower section all sanded and painted!

The finished product!
Great project! Got it all done before the rains hit:)
Now the ramp is icy in the mornings so I need to start looking at ways to make it non-slip without covering up the Logo.

Winter Prep

The first frost has hit and now I need to protect my water line into my THOW.

So, time to get some pipe wrap!

The supply end. The standpipe has always had wrap on it. The green hose is just a garden hose. The wrapped one is my supply hose.

The House end! Should be good to go for the winter!

Stair Winch redo

So my stairs work great! But during a friends visit, the rope to raise them got caught between the pulley and the frame. So, new, bigger rope!
Which lead to looking at what would happen if the rope or pulleys failed while someone was sitting on the bench under the stairs.
New "Failsafe" system!
A hook at the end of the stairs to hook a chain onto when they are raised. 
And with the weight of the stairs on it.
Works well! Peace of mind.

Grandma's Cupboard

Grandma's tiny house was missing an upper cupboard! Here's the wall before.

But, I was missing somewhere to store cereal boxes and similar type stuff. So....

Now I have one overhead cupboard 
above the freezer. 
As the weeks go by, I keep making small changes that make life run a bit more easily. Each change makes my life just a little more enjoyable, and let me tell you, I am REALLY enjoying my tiny life!
