Am I the Louise with Joy? You bet! Especially because I am the Louise with Joy that won Dan’s book! Hey, Joy, how ’bout you? Want to connect about tiny houses? I’m feeling great about moving forward with designing and building!

Omg. I just checked my emails and I am the “Page” listed with Richard for the Sonoma Shanty plans. I thought it was someone else when I left my first comment because of the spelling. I’m so excited. Thanks so much, Kent!!

Well poo, I thought my chances of winning something were pretty good this time. 😛 LOL! Seriously though, congrats to all the winners and thanks to all the sponsors of the giveaway! 😉

Congrats to all the winners! But really the real winners are the people that may go back and read some or all of the comments that were made. The reason is those comments may be what it take to get them to rethink what is needed and what is important in life.

I jokingly say I only need a home of 400 to 600 sq. feet and that’s lots of room. But I need at least 2,000 sq. feet for a hanger and shop space to tinker and play in. My passion is aviation and flying. I look at old airplanes that are falling apart, most people today see junk or scrap, I see history OUR history being lost.

My Dad has flying time in his logbooks of aircraft that you would be lucky to see a photo of but many are just foot notes in a book if that. When you forget and turn your back to the past how can you know where you are going?

    “But really the real winners are the people that may go back and read some or all of the comments that were made. The reason is those comments may be what it take to get them to rethink what is needed and what is important in life.”

    You are so right, Kriss. I spent some time following the links to previous articles some people left in the comments. Many of them definitely have “replay value”. 🙂

      I’ll second that! Especially on rainy afternoons when you don’t want to go outside you can curl up with the computer and check out all the stuff you might have missed or hurried through the first time.

Woohoo! I won! Thank you so much! Even though, I gotta agree with Paige. The true gift is such a great community and wealth of knowledge here. Thank you so much for the past five years, and here is to much, much more!

Hey Kent,

Congratulations! You’ve created a great and obviously popular website. And thanks again for putting my vardo build on here. I always find myself on your blog to get inspired for the next projects.


Bunny - June 3, 2012 Reply

I won! I’m so excited. I haven’t gotten an email yet…. 🙁

This will be my first item stashed for my future tiny house.
It is so wonderful to have a place to learn and connect with like minded people. Maybe someday I’ll be able to share my tiny house project and someone can learn from me.
Thank you so much!

    I sent you an email Friday, maybe it got lost somewhere. I’ll send one again as I need your address to send the Wonder Wash. -Kent

Ben Funk - June 5, 2012 Reply

Hey Kent! I am not sure if I am the Ben who won or not but I’m definitely interested in the book if I was. I just haven’t seen an email yet. If the e-mail didn’t go through or you need an alternate please let me know! Otherwise, keep up the great work on the site!

Congrats to all the winners and to the success of this wonderfully helpful blog.

Anyone used the promo codes when purchasing tickets to a workshop? I attempted to use the code and it was rejected.

    I forwarded your comment to Bridget from Tumbleweed. She will get in touch with you and make sure the discount works. Thanks Kent Griswold (Tiny House Blog)
