The Spring’s Haven Divination House Journal #3

Planning The Divination House

The Inspiration For Our House

Planning Stages

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything about the portable Divination House. The last post was back in August 2012 actually. But gathering ideas for the design and building have continued.

After talking to a few tiny house builders we have expanded our concepts for the design. How do you transport a ‘tree’ house to a renfare and provide yourself space to stay over the weekend to limit expenses? Doing that meant drastically redesigning the tree house and the more we thought and discussed what could and couldn’t be done; the more it looked like the tree wasn’t going to satisfy both needs. It’s one or the other, but not both.

That brought up the next idea. Using the tree house for business, and a portable tiny house for everything else. Double the expense. Oh boy. Well, that’s what dreams are all about. Having your cake and eating it too! Continue reading

The Dream Continues

Planning The Divination House

The Inspiration For Our House

So today I started thinking about the practical approach to the house, traveling for Renfaires and other similar gatherings around the country. Or at the very least the east coast.

Now I know about a number of faires here on our side of the U.S. But what I was thinking about were the practical aspects of the house.

What if we need a place to stay. Do we pull the tree house behind an RV or our truck? If we use the truck do we rent a hotel room? Or do we expand the tree house to accommodate some modern facilities, such as a kitchen and bath. Continue reading

Our Humble Dream

On Sunday July 29th I posted a Sunday Homily “It’s Nice To Have Dreams“, concerning the power of having dreams to reach for and aspire to. In the Homily I mentioned “One of  my newest dreams was inspired by a picture I saw on Facebook. I would like to build this on our utility trailer, haul it to the Renfaire and use it as a divination house. Now wouldn’t that be absolutely awesome?!”

We keep talking about our dream in our family and everyone keeps coming up with great ideas. Including our 9 year old son. Who suggested we make a post on our blog to track the ideas and share them with our family and friends. He said “If we think about it and dream about it and that adds energy to making it real, then wouldn’t more people thinking about it add even more energy?” Well, ok; out of the mouths of babes!

So we’re putting his suggestion into practice. We’ll be updating this post from time to time adding our new ideas and progress to making this dream a reality.

It’s Good To Have Dreams

When I first had this idea, I shared the vision with my husband who immediately started designing it in his head. When you share your dream with others and they support your vision, the exchange and sharing of ideas can add to the creation and manifestation of that dream. Not to mention, you can come up with some great additions to add details to your vision! Continue reading
