Here he is, rocking out his first Tiny House, like a BOSS.
Uncle Pat is one of the best blessings of this whole project.
Uncle Pat (who has always just been Pat up until the network people showed up. Now he's forever Uncle Pat) really went all in and dedicated himself to our build.
Uncle Pat is a skilled builder who really cared about this project and showed how much he cares for us! He put dormers across the whole roof when we were told we could only have one a dormer in the kids' loft! He thought up the catwalk idea so Sully and Story would be safe in the middle of the night! He advocated for our comfort and safety. He dedicated so many hours on top of his already busy building schedule! And he led an amazing group of men to build us a beautiful, sound home under a lot of pressure and in a really short amount of time.
We are so thankful for Uncle Pat. THANK YOU UNCLE PAT!!!
Yea! I'm so glad this was a positive experience for everyone!
So if you're thinking about having a tiny house built contact Uncle Pat! He's so psyched to build another he already ordered some trailers. Oh, yes.
Before the reality show opportunity showed up Ryan and I expected to be building the Tiny House ourselves. I can tell you *with confidence* that it would not have been so awesome.
But one part about that plan that I loved was that I was going to write Bible verses throughout the framing of the house! I wanted to put God's Word in the walls, as part of the structure of our home!
Early on, when I found out we would not be involved with the build, I realized that I wouldn't have the opportunity to work that in. Which was okay, I was fine with finding another unique way to get some Bible verses in.
So when Uncle Pat was chosen as our builder (yea!), my Mom, knowing what I wanted, offered to write the Bible verses in for me! YES! I was so excited!
Mom, who always goes above and beyond, brought Bibles, Bible verse books, prayer books, and sharpie markers to the Tiny House and completely covered the frame! Aunts JeanAnn, Gini, and Joni, cousins Allyssa, Marquee, Sarah, and Kayla, and Ryan's Mom, Gail, all wrote Bible verses within our Tiny House for us!
Thank you Ladies!
I love it SO MUCH!
Mom took pictures of all the verses before they were hidden away by insulation and sheetrock. I'll snag them soon and share a few more.
For now I have only one picture.
Isn't that just right? Amen!
You can scroll back up to the picture of Uncle Pat to see where the prayer is. ^^^
I honestly feel that the Bible verses and prayers, along with the hands of all of the family and friends who helped build our home, greatly contributes to the sense of peace and joy we feel surrounded by in our Tiny House.
It has an amazing energy.
It's completely lovely.
