& I BUILT IT. ALL BY MYSELF.
(Turns out an eight foot length of 2×2 framing is pretty easy for me to pick up by myself, so one of the places I thought I’d need help I’ll be able to handle pretty easily on my own.)
The hardest part was ripping the 2x4s down to 2x2s, but even that was no worse than annoying & tedious. I still wish I could find decent 2x2s, but, well.

I called my aunt on the way to Home Despot today, & opened the conversation with I AM ABOUT TO SPEND SO MUCH MONEY
Yep, I was whining. But that’s how it goes. We had a lovely chat. Turns out my uncle bought a van & has been converting it into a lovely tiny travelling house, so yay! It runs in the family!
