It’s So Hard to see the Children Leave But to “Tiny House on Earth Heaven” they must go.
Well the Zebu Sisters left the nest this week and traveled across Texas to Midland, far away.
The brought with them tears of joy as a storm hit that night after 130 days of no rain and pounded the town, taking out the power for 8 hours that night and giving them a new lease on life where water is everything, and life hinges on the rain, just like the salvage I needed to create this, it was free for the most part, taking nothing from the planet to build these beautiful Zebu Sisters, “Vicki and Sunny” ,
hmmmm what will their nicknames end up being as the Arched Zebu “House of the Rising Sun” and Vicki Zebu are classics in their own right, they share in common many pieces of the El Campo House where we took down the parts and pieces that form the bath walls, in the Sunny, and Vicki both, amongst a few other parts and pieces hidden as dimensional wood, the bones of the beauty that will last the longest.
Otherwise, they share no common ancestors,
Nice muddy start for in the morning but it went well. They opened up the girls eyes to their new home and they were thrilled to be there and jumping for joy, even rising 20′ into the air to land of the footings that will support them, for decades to come, at least.
They were visited by Jill the Zebu who welcomed them to the ranch where they live very well as grass fed organic cattle, pets in this case as they will never be put to slaughter so like my children, they will be loved for the rest of their lives. Here are a few shots of the process involved in getting the houses from my place to where they will rest until the next generation decides where they want to stay.
Needless to say, these are big puzzles that go back together easily, if you know how and remember to bring all of the parts.
From bolts to fixtures, screws to screens, there is so many pieces that we must track on a house as big as the Vicki Zebu, and when you are that far away, you do not want to have to go back 7 hours of driving to fix anything at all if you can help it.
