Springtime greets our traveling Tiny House

Springtime greets our traveling Tiny House


It’s springtime for the Tiny House!

After leaving Death Valley, we stumbled across a field of yellow, purple and blue wildflowers. That when I know: it’s officially springtime!

We stopped off long enough to make a couple of bouquets for Guillaume’s mother and grandmother, and to let Salies frolic through the fields until her paws were stained and her nose was full of pollen. This was our tiny house’s first spring, and I thought she looked dazzling surround by the fluorescent buds!


This quote really represents our past year. 

Just thought we’d share these gorgeous California desert wildflowers with all of you. Some people search for a beautiful wildflower field all season long and never find one! Isn’t it magical when you come across something this natural and illuminating? It’s heavenly, and I know we are very lucky. Desert flower fields only bloom a few weeks a year.

How do you celebrate springtime in a tiny house?

Needless to say, we’ve already done our spring cleaning! How else can you celebrate springtime in a tiny house? Frolicking through the field was a good start, but I’m also celebrating the next part of our journey – traveling up the west coast!

Our tiny house will head up the Pacific Coast Highway all the way from California to Washington. The west coast holds a special place in our heats, and springtime is the perfect time to travel north (especially if we want to make it to Alaska this summer).

springtime for tiny house giant journey

As we celebrate this next chapter in our travels, we also look forward to meeting the many tiny home owners that live along the west coast. For some reason, the west has really embraced the tiny house movement. And the hub of it all? Portland, Oregon! I can’t wait to get there, but first, I’m going to stop and smell the roses.

    I really like Vina’s French doors. It seems so spacious with the doors open and I love the fact that she can use the patio as part of her home. Great idea for those of us that would rather live outdoors! Really enjoy the video tours, getting some great ideas! Thank You,
    Looking forward to pictures from the Sierras:)

    Thanks so much for stopping by! So much fun 🙂 The best part was keeping Salies from eating the pieces of wood on the property… You remind me of my traveling days, simple and carefree. Happy trails and keep rockin’ the world!

    Hi, I am and have been very interested in the tiny home movement. I’ve been exploring the possibility of becoming a tiny houser but being from Orange County, CA I’m just not sure where I could park it. Where do you guys park when your in LA? Where do you park while your traveling? Any tips would be awesome. Thanks!

      We park in people’s driveways and in RV parks. Those are not often long term options though… We don’t really know of an official place to park long term around LA. Your best bet today is to park in someone’s backyard, under the radar. Though living permanently in your tiny house like that might not be technically legal…

    isn’t it wonderful how the simple pleasures of a field of wildflowers can enrich your life? worth more than a basket of gold

      We were in LA a couple weeks ago… Our blog posts are always a few weeks behind as it takes time to write them, process the pictures and edit the videos. You can find out more about our destinations here.
