Big to Tiny to Small – Our Journey

We have been silent for awhile because we have been busy on another project…

We wrote a book! It chronicles the first half of our journey from our big house to our recently completed, perfect, small house.

The Piano Arrivith: 1985 Kawai US-50

Once upon a time, when we were moving out of our home in CT, we moved a piano by ourselves.  At the time, we had been planning on building our tiny home in CT.  Our middle stage involved selling our house and moving into a rental.  This new abode was only a mile down the street and we would save $200-$300 by moving the piano ourselves.  (I think the truck was $20-$30 and the dollies were less than $20.)

The organ dollies we used were essential in making this a straight-forward and safe (for
