I received several constructive comments re: my one outside shot of my Tiny House for the Sunset Magazine Contest for storage containers and, primarily, a featured spot in their magazine. You commented that it was unfortunate you could see ladders alongside the house and " plastic draped" beside the porch. That plastic was actually the cover over my recumbent trike, but that was not apparent. And the straight on shot gave no clue to the dimensions or depth of the Tiny Gypsy House.
I corrected those deficits and sent them a new picture to "swap out" for the first submission, if they were so inclined. This shot, I made a 3/4 view which showed a bit of the entry porch decor and garden. Then it extended down the side of the house to include a hint to the truck that would be hauling this house. Instead of letting the beloved "fitness touring" recumbent trike be relegated to a red blob of cover, it provides a break in the long, uneventful, side view of the house. I am hoping they like the picture enough to find the original gallery submission and make the switch. I also added the "tag line" that I had to cut out of the 100 word description of innovative designs, that, with the skylights, I sleep under stars and wake up inside rainbows." What happens now, is out of my hands. Only God knows......... What would the fox say ? What do YOU say? Do you like the new view ?
When the economy crashed and Jaclyn was being forced from her home due to foreclosure, she knew she wanted more than just a roof over her head. She wanted to travel, and have adventures, but didn't want to live in an RV. She wanted her home to be soul inspiring and nurturing, but needed to create it on a shoe-string budget. So, with minimal funds and a little help from her friends, she built her tiny traveling sanctuary.
In this blog, you'll find the story of Jaclyn's journey from foreclosure to Living Large, Tiny in her Gypsy Island Sanctuary.
Go here for her story.
