It’s not often that a company sends us a product that we absolutely rave about here at CMNB headquarters, but the Ambush Mosquito Trap has won our endorsement and adoration! As many of our readers already know, we’ve been slowly working on turning our headquarters into a Tiny Cabin Country Music Compound, and with that comes a LOT of outdoor work. We’re digging trenches, plotting gardens, raising chickens, and of course, working all day in open buildings that aren’t quite sealed against the elements. Last summer we were swarmed by all manner of biting bugs, and it made the work almost unbearable, so when we got a surprise package from AmbushMosquitoTraps.com a couple months ago, we were thrilled, but skeptical.
This year has been a picnic… if by picnic you mean we’ve had to halt construction plans on a half-finished community kitchen since Covid took away the live music industry and nixed the bulk of our income, leaving us prepping cold sandwiches and pickles when we’d rather be cooking up a storm! But of course, you can’t always predict the curveballs that life is going to throw at you.
Thank you for joining us again as we go over the logic and planning that has gone into our tiny cabin country music compound build! In our previous posts we’ve covered identifying our resources, and narrowing down our needs in order to make efficient and budget-conscious decisions about the way this project comes together, but before we get further down the construction path, we also need to take a realistic look at the dreams we have for this property’s future.
Last week we covered how we looked at our available resources, and identified our needs when it comes to building this tiny cabin country music community in the foothills of the Ozarks. This week we’ll be taking those resources and needs and showing you how they all play into fulfilling our dreams for the property, and how we’re using Slickdeals.net to pack as much luxury we can into our tight budget!
Today we’re going to explore some of the planning and budgeting aspects as we continue our journey into building a tiny cabin country music community in the foothills of the Ozarks. While the tiny home concept seems to be everywhere these days, it seems very few people talk about how to make the finance side of things work, both during construction, and long after it’s done. While every project is subject to a million variables, they all start at the same place: A dream, and the drive to achieve it.
