I have neglecting posting for too long. We have been so busy… as you can imagine. Though I am constantly thinking about it and taking pictures for it, I just forget to make time to actually share those with you. If you want more frequent updates… you can follow me on Twitter or Tumblr… but those also have non-Tiny-House things mixed in.
But the good news is that I have lots of pictures! Hurrah! These pictures focus on the insulation and interior walls.
For insulation, we considered a bunch of options… Denim, blown-in, rigid foam, spray foam, and fiberglass. Ultimately, we decided on fiberglass mainly because of the price. We felt that the benefits of other, perhaps more “green”, options weren’t significant enough to justify the steep price tag.
We did however decide to buy pine board (also sometimes called tongue and groove, pine planks, and car siding). We found an amazing sale at Menards that brought the cost down to just barely over the price of drywall. The benefits of pine board are significant in non-green ways in that it is extremely light compared to drywall, which is great for a trailer. We also like the look and feel of wood. Check out the pics below.
You can see the insulation in the ceiling… and we’ve started the Pine Board by this point. I should point out that these photos were taken in July and August.
You can see a good cross section of the insulation and pine boards used on the back wall. We put pine everywhere, including the ceiling.
Here is the insulation in our kitchen. You can also see some of the electrical.
Just needs trim.
This was the first wall we put planking on… with the help of my dad. The grey rectangle next to the door is an in-wall speaker.
Being a tech guy, I’ve always wanted a whole house audio system. No easier, cheaper, or better place to make that a reality than in a Tiny House.
View of the living room from the loft. Just needs trim.
This wall will be used as a spacer between the refrigerator and the stove. The stove side will have shelves for spices. Apologies for the tripod in the shot.
Here is the stove side of the divider.
This is the view towards the bedroom.
Here is the same kitchen wall painted white. We decided to paint because we really loved the look of the Protohaus.
That is all for now. We have lots more to show you. Thanks for stopping by.
