  • No smoking in the tiny house or main house
  • No long-term guests
  • Limited storage under tiny house
  • One well-behaved dog may be considered. No cats

About the animals:

In the barn, we have two miniature donkeys, Butchie (7) and Berto (5), and four goats Ingrid, Mary, Edith, and Sybil. In the house, we have two dogs, Copper a basset hound mix (13), and Dillon a bloodhound (5), and two cats Edgar (6ish) and Arthur (6ish).
