Jacqueline Johnson is creating the best tiny house in the world!

In April 2016 I bought a 1954 vintage travel trailer, with the intention of turning it into a tiny house, a long held dream. 

I've been interested in the tiny house movement for over 20 years, and never thought that someday, I'd actually get to live it. I have the home, it has the potential, but now I need the help. 

I work on Minty in the Spring, the Summer, and the Fall here in Upstate NY, in Winter, like everyone else, I hibernate, and in my case, I create, but to create more, to create better, I need a safe, comfortable home to do that in.

Until Minty and I found each other, life was pretty miserable. But now we're together, and she deserves to be worked on, for saving my life, very literally.

I have Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency a genetic issue that in my case, has resulted in incredibly fragile lungs, I spend a lot of time, in and out of hospital with lung problems. But since Minty and I got together, those times are much less, as I no longer have things like black mould in my life. But I need to keep going, I need to make sure that I'll never have to deal with that again, and Minty is my "bubble" in many ways. She helps to protect me from allergic reactions, and for my mental health, she helps lessen the stress of bad living conditions.

Even during my worst swings of Bipolar Disorder, the last 2 years, she has really been there for me. She has kept me alive, on so many levels. She deserves to be the most amazing vintage travel trailer turned tiny house on the planet.

I have many dreams for Minty and I, but right now, they are pretty basic. Some new tires, and some cosmetic things, and some minor structural repairs. As I progress, her goals will get bigger, but my world will also get bigger. 
Goals
13% complete


I need around 16 Smart Tiles to complete the area behind my kitchen sink (4' x 2')  in the Minty Turd, they are $6.49 each directly from the company, in the Murano Eco design (what can I say, they didn't have pink or turquoise and I don't want white) updating the look pretty substantially. Anything over the price of tiles will go for a nicer box cutter and other tools for installation. The wall behind the stove will be done in another goal.
