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


Tiny House Electrical Trim

Electrical Inlet Cable Enclosure

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been sanding and doing other interior prep work.  I first had to knock out the box I’ve been planning to build around the incoming electrical cable.  The cable goes from the 50 Amp RV plug to the electrical box but it juts out a bit. This entire area will Continue reading


Tiny Home Wood Paneling Trim

Covering Paneling Seams

In my previous post I highlighted the finishing of hanging the wall paneling.  When I did the wall paneling I left gaps in between the sheets of plywood all over the place on purpose.  I knew I’d be covering it up with something. There are a couple of different routes you could go.  I chose Continue reading


Bathroom Paneling Done

Interior Paneling

I finally feel like I’m in the home stretch.  I also know that this is a lie. Early on I naively thought I’d be done with the tiny house in just 6 months.  By the time I’m done it’ll have been 2 years.  Unfortunately most of that is due to me having such a busy Continue reading


Tiny House RV Plug, Water, & Cable

Exhaust Vent + Cable

As I get closer to finishing the installation of the insulation and the beginning of the interior wall paneling I needed to wrap up a couple of loose ends.  No, not in the Carlito’s Way sort of loose end.  I mean as in  the needing to finish the last of the items that go within Continue reading


Home Reserve Couch Completed

Home Reserve Couch

Read our review after we’ve used this couch for a year and a half. Hint, its still fantastic and we’ve had everything from crayon writing on it, a dirty dog rolling on it, and our first use of the amazing warranty. We interrupt this Tiny House build with an important message regarding the couch we’ll Continue reading


Propane Hot Water Heater & Tanks

Propane & Water Heater

As I finish any of the utilities within the walls so that I can insulate and  put wood paneling on the walls I am now onto running the tiny house propane lines.  Since my wife is a chef she wants…i.e. requires a gas stove/oven.  We’re also doing an instant hot water heater.  Both will be Continue reading
