Replacing a Window in a Vintage Trailer: Thank You Fletcher's Trailer Sales!

As the weather get's colder and fall is in full swing, it is safe to say that work on the construction of COMET is winding down for now. It's a little too cold to paint the exterior outside, so until I find an indoor workspace I'll have much more time to post about the progress of the last few months. I'm glad for the change of pace!Lots of exciting things happened for us in the last few weeks. We brought the COMET to Deek Diedricksen's tiny house workshop in Stoughton, MA. It was an awesome weekend of talking tiny, building a super teeny house on a trailer, and lots of time around the campfire. We got to hang out in the Whittled Down Caravan with Tristan and Libby, which was great. At the workshop we were interviewed for an NPR show coming up (I'll definitely let you know when I find out the air date), which was unexpected and totally awesome. We also did a video with Deek for Tiny Yellow House (his youtube video channel), which will be out soon I hope! Even though the COMET remains a work in progress, it is really shaping up into something lovely, and people seemed excited about the future of the project. After the tiny house workshop, we did a video shoot for a Spaces.TV "Offbeat Spaces" webseries episode, which was really neat and a new experience for me. The COMET is such a technical project for me, and talking about the aesthetics and interior design choices for the Offbeat Spaces video was a welcome change!Anyway, lots of re-capping and catching up to do as always (I think the only solution to this would be a clone...anyone?)...but I promise now that the weather has made working outside less feasible, I will be spending more time with the blog!

Now, to the rest of this post!

On The Green Road

On The Green Road is Cece Reinhardt and Brenda Daugherty. I came across their website when I was researching The COMET project, and since I've found them they have been infinitely helpful and supportive of me. They were my first official sponsor! They really are wonderful people and what they have done and are doing to educate people about sustainable, mobile living is amazing.

Cece and Brenda travel the country in their gorgeous Airstream, which has been completely retrofitted with sustainable, green building materials and technologies in alternative energy. They tow their classic Airstream with a truck that runs on Biofuel (waste veggie oil). These visionary ladies give open houses and informational sessions in their off-grid Airstream, spreading the word about sustainable, healthy living. The two of them live in their Airstream full time, they even have a cat!

Thank you Stone Soup Worcester!

I wanted to say Thank You to Stone Soup Worcester, an awesome collective organization in Worcester, MA that donated lots of lumber and plywood to The COMET project. Check out the "SPONSORS" page to read more about Stone Soup. Their contribution will help me replace framing and walls within The COMET. Thanks to Gray Harrison for helping me get the stuff out of the garage!

If you or your company is interested in sponsoring The COMET by donating eco-friendly building products, materials, services, or anything else, and in return get featured on this website, on my Sponsors page, and visibility all over the country when The COMET travels to schools and institutions giving info sessions and open houses (I'll also do an open house at your place of business, your kids' school, or both!), please contact me!
