I would like to thank Tow-Tek Trailers from Mitchell Ontario for their generous donation to the proposed Tiny House Community in the area of Kitchener Ontario. It is nice to see that a trailer company that really believes in the tiny house movement!
I have been communicating with the owner of this company, Ron for the last few months, fact is, that he has an excellent product and has done a quite a bit of research so that he can understand not just our needs, but what we are looking for in a trailer.
The consequence is that he is producing and selling absolutely gorgeous trailers that are custom made for tiny housers in this province (or outside of it too I suppose). The work is excellent and the prices are fair too; particularly considering the quality of this product. Fact is, Ron and his guys will even frame it up for you to your specs!
I invite all of you who are building a tiny house on wheels to take a peek at their product at thier facebook page and give them a like.
Tow-Tek is located at 3882 Wellington Road South in Mitchell Ontario and can be reached at 519-872-7855
Here is some eye candy for you!

As many of you know, I very much need a shed at Tiny House Ontario. In order to build this, I need to raise some funds. I decided in the winter that I would try to up my income, by bringing prints of my work to the historic Springer Market Square in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. BUT in oder to do this I had to buy a car… a 1999 Golf… and is in the shop now getting a $400 repair done. So much for earning. So far, I pay rent at the market and I am not quite breaking even… but with the car repair and gas… tragic (for me)!
I was speaking about my concerns to fellow artist friend (another Laura) and she made a few suggestions. In short, I have followed her advice. I opened an account with Fine Art America to sell some of my pieces, originals as well as prints.
I decided to keep the prices minimal – marking them up just a dollar or two on each print and the originals are marked to pay for my materials as well as my time. I wanted to keep the prices as low as I can so that everyone in the tiny house community can afford to support me. Too, I think it would be cool to see my work up in other tiny houses! I am really hoping that this will happen!
