I've always wanted to cycle to/from work but never had access to safe cycle routes or a decent bike. Now I can cycle to work and I'm loving. I nabbed a spare bike off my mate and got it serviced, it's made a huge difference. There's still a few pockets of my cycle that are dicey -hello Neilson St- but I'm working my way around it. Bonus: cycling is quicker than driving as I avoid the traffic!
Just a casual 1.5L of kombucha in a reused beer bottle. This one is rhubarb from my garden, taking it to a potluck with a very large apple and rhubarb crumble too.
This is cool @smartasstp! Was worried about how I was gonna store a giant ass box of your loo rolls in my tiny house, so great to see options!
I built myself this sweet as pallet bed! (well I had a bit of help). This bed will eventually be in my tiny house loft, so it needed to have a low profile but also have storage space. I also wanted it to fit in my hatchback as I no longer own furniture that I can't move in my car! Makes moving around a breeze. Shout out to my awesome boss @welovecompost for the pallet hook up and also this sweet as @offcut hat. P.S. I usually build in more practical attire, this was straight from work 😅
I bought this adorable hand drawn/written NZ foraging booklet from @lucknowlostboys. You guys know how much I love foraging (I have a few blog posts about it even). This little booklet will come in handy! And it's plastic free, even the little envelope had cute drawings on it! Thanks heaps Sunni 😍🌱🌿🌾
I wrote an article for @thisnzlife about things you need to know when building a tiny house. I'll link it in the comments. My next blog post will be about my tiny house materials, which will explain the ol mismatched cladding I have 😊
Cooked this fancy camping snack (guacamole, eggs and corn) @splorefestival yesterday. Splore has compost bins at every bin station! All of the food vendor packaging is compostable as well, Splore is fully dedicated to landfill diversion. This blue milk crate I inherited a few years ago, at home or stores my shoes. I take it camping to use as a cooking table, shelf, chair and dish drying rack.
Just your local waste nerd handing out compostable bags and making sure campers are sorting their waste properly at @splorefestival. Also repping a @sewlovenz bumbag and hi vis! HMU if you see me 🚯♻
It's been so long that I've had a functioning inside of my tiny house (2 months!) and I've never shared a photo! I didn't share any pics because it's been a mess, it is a construction site after all 🚧 but then it's probably always going to be a bit untidy... Last week my friend and I raised, leveled and screwed the lofts in place. I could finally move that giant bag of insulation out of the way. The insulation on off cuts from a large building, this is about half of the insulation I purchased at a ridiculously cheap price, because it was a waste item to them! Next up is putting in some nogs for fixings and tackling the gas and electrical. Any tradies in Auckland who can help me?
