I used to call this annual post “Top 10 HeidiTown Highlights,” but I’m going to change it up this year because everyone loves a “Best Of” list, right?

Ryan and I have been intrigued by the tiny home movement for many years. It stems from Ryan’s ability as a master craftsman to build one himself, after all, he could build one in his shop.

Berthoud in in the snow HeidiTown

I’ve been writing for the Berthoud Weekly Surveyor for 7 years, so I’ve had a long relationship with the town of Berthoud, Colorado.

Berthoud is a charming town, and a visit there is a bit
