Tiny House Jamboree, Colorado Springs

The counter top showing the dead space area
  • Tiny House Teas is headed to the Tiny House Jamboree in Colorado Springs, August 7-9th. Preparations have been on-going for several weeks. One of my concerns has been the age 'ol problem of...where to put the trash can? Having limited space makes one creative even when she may not be. 
  • In the middle of the night, I realized I had this huge (in tiny house speak) dead space where the counter tops come together. See photo above. So I decided to remedy that by cutting a hole at the corner, slipping a small silver trash can that wasn't being used into the hole, and caulking around the can.

There is a black plastic liner, but I added a plastic bag to make it easier to dispose of the kitchen scraps.

This how it looks with the lid on top of the plastic bag. Reminds me of a octopus in distress!!

This is the image without the plastic bag. It's a much cleaner look, but not near as convenient.

John and I leave tomorrow. We'll stop by Mom's house in Round Rock. We plan to overnight in Amarillo. Then, on Thursday, we will arrive in Colorado Springs for the Jamboree.

Hope to meet lots of new Tiny House people.  Safe travels to all!!!
