Tiny House Construction:  Vapour Barrier, Interior Walls and a Loft

Tiny House Construction: Vapour Barrier, Interior Walls and a Loft

Watch a time lapse to see what I have been up to: As you may have noticed in my last update, using the house as both the workshop, storage and the job site was starting to get a little cramped. I decided to buy a portable car shelter to act as storage and workshop in order to free up inside the house. Continuing with the vapour barrier that I started before the Christmas break, I insulated around the wheel wells before sealing up the walls. Installing the vapour barrier in the ceiling was very time consuming, as I wanted a good seal at the ridge to prevent any moisture from
A Journal From the Long Trail

A Journal From the Long Trail

This Autumn I thru hiked the Long Trail in Vermont. America's oldest long distance hiking trail would be my first foray into the big American hikes. My goal was to learn about what it takes to do the really big stuff. No proper thru hike would be complete without a trail name. Call me Hobo Joe, or just Hobo. I estimated the hike would take around three weeks and required some logistics, which I quite enjoyed. This would be the first time I sent myself resupply packages, which mainly consisted of homemade dehydrated meals. This would also be my lightest hike to date, as I ventured into

Tiny House Construction: Propane, More Plumbing & A Bit of Electrical

Watch a time lapse to see what I have been up to: Coming back from a bit of a break, my goal was to chip away at the project over autumn and winter. I decided that every afternoon I could I would spending trying to achieve 'something', big or small on the house (which it turns out is easier said than done!). Thanks to Richard and Jake for your continued assistance and a HUGE shout out to Brady for the work (/therapy) sessions and to Carly for your support as always. It means a lot. I started by making some big holes in the walls! These are to accommodate the kitchen and shower room
Embracing My Introvert

Embracing My Introvert

I have always known that I am somehow ‘different’, I just never understood how. My whole life I have struggled with interactions with other people and fostering relationships. Some labels I had for how I felt addressed the symptoms, but not the cause. I enjoy being different, it has been a guiding force in my life, but it’s not an easy path. Sometimes it’s downright lonely. Why did it take me so long to realise I am an introvert? It’s kind of puzzling looking back as a 31 year old. I think it’s down to feeling that I had to change myself in order to do things like other people, in

Tiny House Construction: Plumbing & Electrical Rough-In

Watch a time lapse to see what I have been up to: After many moons away from the project, followed by many more researching and planning the next stages of the build, some progress finally occurred in the house! A huge thank you to Brady who came over from Vancouver to help for the weekend. I was also fortunate to connect with Jake, an electrician who agreed to answer all of my (many) questions on the electrical planning as well as actually carry out the work. Thanks guys, I appreciate the support. The first job was to construct the toilet/shower room wall and install a loft bean above.
