This past Friday we woke up early and hit the road to Pink Hill, NC for the 2017 Tiny House North Carolina Street Festival. It's not every day that you come across a tiny house festival, let alone one just a short drive from home! (Thanks for the heads up Mom!)
Harper and I pulled into Pink Hill around lunch time and made a bee-line for the two skoolies that were a part of the festival. (Side-note: Pink Hill, NC is a tiny town. Appropriate venue for a tiny home festival, no?)
Lo and behold one of the buses belonged to The Midwest Wanderers, Instagram friends of ours! It was a serendipitous moment to be able to meet Luke and Rachel and check out the interior of their incredible 1992 AmTran Genesis bus conversion.
It was really interesting to see such a variety of tiny homes, both stationary and mobile. We quickly came to realize that you can truly tell a lot about a person by how he or she has designed their tiny home. Every home really is a reflection of those who live in it, but when you are counting your square footage in dozens or a few hundred as opposed to thousands, personalities really shine through.
What we came to realize is that for us we have truly prioritized storage and our cooking/living space. Which goes to show that we are essentially pack rats who love to cook. In comparing our designs for our skoolie conversion to some of the tiny homes we saw at the festival we quickly realized that in many instances we were going to have double, even triple the storage space!
If all goes according to plan we'll be back at the 2018 Tiny House North Carolina Street Festival as participants rather than attendees!
