Completed the lining, and other tidy up jobs

So its been about 2.5 months since the last post – mainly due to the fact that we were still working on the same task as what was blogged about last time, which shouldn’t have taken anywhere near as long as it did. So yes, the lining is now done. It has been raining quite […]

Insulation and lining

So now that we’ve caught up the blog posts with where we are actually up to… We’ve purchased 6 bags of R2.2 Wall Pink Batts insulation and 23 sheets of 6mm ply and 10 sheets of 9mm ply for lining the inside of the house. We bought disposable overalls, goggles & dust masks for putting […]

While I’m not honestly much into reading, I wanted a nice window to create a sunny spot on our couch, and […]

First thing’s first!

I’m embarrassed to say that the first purchase we made for our tiny house was… a shub! This one: (have lost the photo – will need to take another one)   As a part of future-proofing our tiny house (we’re young marrieds), we are being conscious of what a future child or two might need […]
