Finished Tiny House

Major Updates Coming

Currently updating lots of back logged posts.   I had been updating FB with generic posts and just updated YouTube with all of the construction videos.  However, I hadn’t uploaded anything with high amounts of detail as I’d done up to that point. Have no fear….all of those posts are coming.  Working on the backlog….since Continue reading

Home Reserve Review

If you haven’t read our earlier review of the home reserve couch (here) then do so first.  After having had the couch for a year and a half I felt it was time to finally give it a proper review. In short…you can’t go wrong with this couch.  We have a toddler, an older son, Continue reading

Downstairs Bedroom Frame & Sliding Door

Bedroom Sliding Door

With the downstairs bedroom trim work all hammered out its time to move on to the sliding door.  If you didn’t catch where I learned how to do trim work, check out the training here for more details. One of the things I’ve known for awhile is that I didn’t want the doors leading into Continue reading

Downstairs Bedroom Trim Complete

Under Loft Trim Work

Now that I’m 100% sure that the house will tow fine its time to get this Tiny House finished!  Time to finish up the loft area so I can start working on the bits underneath it without worrying about having to navigate around all of the soon to be obstacles.  While the pictures in my Continue reading

Tiny House Towing

Tiny House Test Tow

This might be a bit weird…but as I’ve mentioned in quite a few posts before I am a bit paranoid. I over engineer items that might not need it, studied for months in prep of electrical and plumbing, and took to forums for parts of the build that some might be able to handle without Continue reading

Tiny House Interior Paint

This is the point where things are deceptively looking almost done…and they are, but there is still a long road ahead of me.  Getting the interior painted makes it look like its only a few days away from being done. If I had a team of professionals working on this it would be doable in Continue reading

Tiny House Exterior Trim Work Finished 3

Exterior Trim Painting

This post won’t be super heavy on text and instruction as its basically a repeat of the second part of my last post where I laid out how to paint the trim work.  Painting trim work is a pretty rewarding experience as it means that a major part of a project is nearing completion. That and Continue reading

Window Trim after 3 Coats of Paint & 2 Coats of Primer

Exterior Window Trim

Early on in the build I’d knocked out the window trim.  The problem…I didn’t know how to do trim work yet.  If I’d paid a bit more attention to the training in this Tiny House online course early on I’d have saved myself the trouble.  But instead I’d made some best guesses and then did Continue reading

Step by Step Interior Window Trim

Interior Window Trim Work

The interior of the house is now coming together.  It always strikes me as funny that a bit of trim work can really make a house’s look (even unpainted) start to pop.  I have spent the past week cleaning out the excess foam insulation that surrounds the windows, picking out any staples and nails, and Continue reading

Trim Work Over Insulation on Tiny House Wheel Well

Wheel Well Prep & Trim

With the holiday’s over its time to prep the wheel wells and then on to finishing the sanding needed in the house before painting. Before I enclosed the wheel wells I decided to do something I’d not done earlier…..I opened up the wheel wells and waterproofed them.  If you are just starting off on your Continue reading
