Build Tiny’s Stash

Being in the construction business for many years in the same area has it’s advantages. Today as I was running errands I came across another great deal. I needed some sheet copper for a table top so I went to my local Roof Center. After I purchased the copper I was chatting with the manager and asked him if he had many windows in the bone pile. Now he knows that I am always looking for a deal, so when he smiled and said “yeah, come on back”, I was pretty sure I was going to go home with a deal. Now shopping for tiny house windows is not quite the same as just grabbing any deal; I wanted to make sure they would be sizes that would be usable. They were. I left there with 8 windows.

So what am I going to do with all those windows you ask? Well I am going to add them to the growing pile of leftover, recycled, not needed, etc… stuff that I am sure someone will want for their tiny house.

This pile already includes a fridge, generator, power center and some other items I recently harvested from a camper that was heading to the recyclers. As well as building materials that are left over from jobs.

In the past these items have been donated to the Habitat Restore, and I still take some things there, but now I am going to set aside things for Build Tiny workshop attendees to purchase at super low prices, i.e. fridge $25, generator $50. At the beginning of each workshop I will let everyone know where the items are located and they can look through them. Options to purchase items will be determined by the order of sign up. First person to sign up for the workshop has first option to buy as much as they want. If they don’t want to buy everything, the second person to sign up has the next option….. and so on.

It will be nice if  all the stuff can find its way into a tiny house.
