Wow! I have been spinning for a while now... That was an interesting look into how things were done in the past... And is pretty much exactly how it's done now. Some things never change, as they say!
The peeling paint shouldn't be a problem as long as the body of the freezer is sound. You don't mention if it is plastic inside or metal. If plastic, scrape old paint, sand it lightly, use krylon plastic fusion paint. If metal, scrape old paint, sand lightly, use regular krylon. It says "no sanding" on the spray can, I sand anyhow for better adhesion. Whatever you do, let it cure for a day or two before plugging it in.

Thank you - sorry it took so long to post! I was looking for the perfect homestead in western Montana... Maybe I will have good luck with that too!

Thank you everyone for your input - it has been most helpful! We are looking at land in the Flathead valley of western Montana. After a little research I found I can have my tiny house here, but I wont be able to build it where I currently live (eastern Montana) due to local regulations in my current location.

Very good idea to figure out what my current needs are and build around that... and I love the idea of tinyhouse sitting or even rental! I have started to make a couple of floorplan drawing and am looking to see what will really work the best. Thanks again guys!Anyone with more tips or book suggestions feel free to chime in!

I have a copy of FORAGING & FEASTING: A Field Guide and Wild Food Cookbook
by Dina Falconi and am wondering if there is a to of overlap in plants covered in the book Wild Edibles! or if it covers mostly different flora. I have cherished my copy of Foraging & Feasting and am looking for something to add to it in my collection.

My husband and I had planned on moving into a 5th wheel trailer once our kids moved out, but due to some weather issues (-40 f ?!) have decided a tiny house would be better. We would want to ideally build it ourselves (with the help of knowledgeable friends) but are at a loss as to which way to go with it. There are so many different ideas out there that I find myself lost in a sea of half useful information. What books or other sources of reliable information should we be looking at in the planning phase? I can daydream all day about the perfect set of stairs, but with no solid plan what good is that? I guess I currently feel overwhelmed, but we have a history of pulling it together and getting it done. Just wanted some input.
