Hot bath. Is that too much to ask? What do I miss the most about the big house? Well let me tell you. I miss my tankless hot water heater and its neverending supply of warmth and goodness. In the awful house, you can get one good shower out of the hot water heater. That is not enough for me. Not nearly enough.
Our tiny house was no longer tiny. As we looked over the plans, we realized this was not going to be as easy as we thought. The bottom floor had grown by a couple hundred heated square feet. This was because of that stupid staircase. All we wanted was a library ladder! In order to get the staircase in the house, we had to move one of the bathrooms. This added six feet to the length of the house and the stairs added two feet to the width of the house. The first floor of Plan A had a total of 836 HSF. Take a look and you can see what changed from the original plan to Plan A.

We picked a house plan! To say I was excited was an understatement. I was so ready to go see a draftsman to get the plans drawn. After asking around for recommendations for a good draftsman, I decided to use one my friend Leslie suggested. His office is located in Ruston. I will not use his real name because I did not ask permission so we will just call him Mr. Square Foot. It just so happened that the day after I altered the plans to my standards, I had a hair appointment in Ruston with the best stylist and colorist (is that a word?) ever, Donna Berry (that is totally her real name so call her if you need better hair). I gave Mr. Foot a call to see if he could meet after my appointment and he said yes! Going new places alone is not my kind of adventure, so I rang my bestest friend and college roomie, Barbara, to see if she would tag along. "Duh- of course I will!" she said. (Or something along those lines- Sorry, Barb, if i misquoted you, but that is what my mind heard.)
