A Week Off and the Tiny House Bike Tour 2013

Pedalpalooza is a big deal in Portland, with weeks of special/themed bike rides, parkway rides, etc. to celebrate Portland’s bike culture. Last year we went on the Tiny House bike tour just for fun, never believing at that time that we would actually beĀ  building our own by the same time next year. Funny how much change a year brings. There weren’t as many stops this year, but there were some very interesting developments, and the grand finale was the Tiny House Hotel, first of its kind! It was located right off of NE Alberta, next door (ever-so-conveniently) to the Grilled Cheese Grill, and all very bike-friendly. They told us in a few weeks they will have a website up and running, but the hotel is officially open for business as of now. Here is the afternoon in pictures:

And the happiest thing of the day – we ran into a couple we already *kinda* know who have a Powermover, which we will need BADLY very soon, and they are open to renting it to us! Squee!

Creating "new" from old has been a preoccupation of mine for a long time, but turned into a full-time adventure in building and living in a tiny "reclaimed" house. Beginning in 2012, I will live in this 120 square foot space for the length of my PhD studies in Literature and the Environment, and perhaps beyond. In this way, I hope to live a little smaller, leave a little lighter, and learn in what ways formal study can be acted in the every day.
