Tiny Open House

The time has come! I am delighted to announce that the house is done enough to have folks come check it out.  Anyone who is willing to make the drive (short or long) can come see the house, ask questions, and enjoy some refreshments.  I know it’ll be a very short tour, but it’ll be fun nonetheless!  Details: When? 12/15/12 from 8 – 4…

Almost finished! …and what’s up with tiny house prices?

We are getting so close to finishing the house!  Since my last post, we trimmed out the interior doorways, finished the quarter round on the floor, and installed shelves in the closets.   The doorway trim was really the last major use of my pallet pieces…it’s kind of sad actually.  But they look great and I’m very glad to not have purchased new wood…

Flooring!

This is mostly going to be about the super awesome floor (because, well, it’s super awesome).  In all seriousness, let me backtrack for those not familiar with the master plan.  I originally wanted to use old pallets for practically everything I could think of (cabinets, flooring, trim, siding, etc.).  After a ton of work to use said pallets as interior window trim, the vote…

Late October Update

Got a lot of little stuff done at the end of October!  Most exciting is starting the flooring 🙂 There will be an open house in about a month at Newport Hardware. Details soon!

Early October Progress

We had another trip to prepare for, so in went the stairs/ladder and we finished up the exterior paint (aside from the door and touch-ups).  After getting back from the northern VA adventures, it was time to finish the propane lines!  Finally we could test the water heater, oven/stove, and the Newport P9000.  As much as I wanted a woodstove (and still have the…

News!

Dad and I had a blast taking the house up to Manassas and Charles Town!  I got to share it with my friends, coworkers, and random tiny house enjoyers.  On our way up, we stopped at a gas station and ended up giving an impromtu tour!  As for the media coverage, let me say that it got a little hectic but everything worked out…

Tiny House Tour

Dad and I took the house up to Manassas, VA last week. What a trip! We were interviewed by several reporters and had a blast letting everyone see it. With this media coverage came some interesting questions from commenters that I’d like to address. This might step on some toes, but here goes: My school isn’t a diploma mill. AMU is regionally accredited and…

So much to catch up on!

Well, I suppose this means the end of “build days” and the beginning of a very belated post of all the progress over the last month.  It’s, well…AWESOME. Ready. Set. Pictures:

Quick video update

As usual, I’m a bit pressed for time.  Here’s a short video of the progress as of last night!  Today I’ll be staining the walls, painting some doors and furniture, and possibly other random items.  Enjoy!

Build Days 38 – 46 (8/8/12 – 8/16/12)

So much work to catch up on…I’m thinking just a picture post today!
