Starting the Tiny House Interior

 

We actually got the insulation part of this post done a long time ago.  I have not had a chance to do any posting lately because I have been too lazy to go to town and use the internet.  I have pretty much refused to leave my cozy cabin unless I had to go to work.  My days off I stay home.  So now I am finally getting this posted.

Insulation all over the place keeping us warm.

I’m not sure if you can tell in these two pictures, but along the bottom of the picture is the catwalk from one loft to the other.  This is where I got to stand to hang the insulation for the roof of the cabin.  It was really not a lot of fun.  The pink part is the rafter mate to allow for air flow.  Then I hung the insulation over that.

In the bottom of this picture you can see the top of the loft floor and to the right you can see the cat walk.

We also got the floor down.

We ended up using these 1’x1′ linoleum tiles for the floor covering.  They aren’t super nice, but it covers the floor boards.  The black floor is in the kids room.  There weren’t a lot of designs to choose from and the black ones were cheap.  So they are in the kids room under the rug.

This is the floor where we stack the wood.  It was the very cheapest tile and we knew it would get ruined under the wood anyway, so here it is.

This is the floor around the rest of the cabin.  It actually looks really good.  A couple of the tiles aren’t perfectly close together for one reason or another and we may have to fill in the cracks a little bit.  But overall it came out pretty good.

Our next step is to put up the wall covering.  We are thing tongue and groove pine board.  The kids room will likely be plywood painted with chalkboard paint.  Who knows when we will get to this though.  We are too busy cutting and stacking wood and then doing nothing.  The money is also coming i slowly since we have so many other things we still need to pay for.  But we are warm and content for now.  We really aren’t in a hurry to finish the place off.  Everything is just fine the way it is.  We will get there eventually, when we feel like it.

Making a Driveway

The excavator has arrived!  Now we can finally get to work.  There is only one problem, the “driveway” is not passable with an excavator.  Before we can do anything, we have to fix the driveway so that the excavator will be able to get past the very steep ledge that …

Mini Cordwood Build: Gathering Flooring Tiles

The floor we intend to use is a dirt floor.  I will get into the details of that aspect when we do it, but it is not just dirt beneath your feet.  It ends up nicely sealed so that you aren’t getting dirt all over the place.  What I am …
