A librarian, a writer and a program director walk into a tiny house...

...and the writer falls down a ladder.

No really, that's what happened. My roommate, a friend and I went to see a really cool Tumbleweed house that was on display in DC this past weekend, and while climbing down from the loft, I lost my footing on the tiny ladder and slipped. After falling three rungs, I managed to catch myself before hitting the floor, but thanks to an old shoulder injury, I probably should have chosen the floor.

Of course I didn't notice the stiffness and bruising until the next day, so I got to enjoy the house pain free. I loved all the clever uses of space and minimalism, but I don't think all of my books would fit. Plus, there is that tiny ladder.

It was great fun to have Steph come for a visit, and I'm glad she got to see her tiny house.
