Tiny House Construction: The Finale!

Tiny House Construction: The Finale!

Watch a time lapse to see what I have been up to: Well it's been a while! Things have come along nicely. First up was installing the engineered maple flooring that I got a Craigslist deal on. The install was pretty straight forward once I got into a rhythm. I calculated that I had just the right amount, as long as I didn't install flooring underneath the cabinets (that'll save some weight too). I hoped that I would have enough to go under the fridge/freezer, but not the end of the world if I didn't - I could just patch that with plywood and no-one (else) would ever know. I was

Tiny House Construction: Getting There!

Watch a time lapse to see what I have been up to: Things are really starting to com together as I venture into the finishing work. With the end starting to peak over the horizon I am spurred on, so lots to cover in this update. With the walls complete, Carly and I decided on colours and finishes. We decided to paint the plywood walls and leave the floor/ceiling natural wood to prevent a too-woody-sauna-feel. After some deliberation we decided on two colours: a light green and a light grey/white. Unfortunately most of the painting sessions were lost from the time lapse video due to a technical
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

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

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.
