The winds of autumn are here! Despite injury, a full work season, and shortening days, we’ve been able to get just a little bit more completed on the tiny house, a continual work in progress despite moving in one whole year ago!
And now, celebrating . . .
Autumn Progress on the Tiny House!
- Our front door sanded, re-stained with tung oil, and re-leveled with stronger screws, the latter thanks to a friend from church that spent a morning with his family helping us.
- Touch ups of exterior stain all around the house.
- Second gable end of roof finished. Wasp stings, metal shards in the hand, and roofing nails raining down on the kids, all somehow (barely) averted.
- Wood storage in a homemade pine box for inside.
- Bathroom shelves, of pine and bronze shelf strapping lifted from our previous clothing storage.
- Outlet covers . . . really make things look finished, with no more alpaca wool hanging out!
- A new kitchen faucet, after some problem solving with our plumbing.
- Curtains with grommets and rods underneath the kitchen counters, instead of cabinet doors.
- Copper bowl we originally saved for a bathroom sink, now fancifying the kitchen wall.
- Nails for kids’ winter jackets. Ok, I’m stretching just a bit to include this in our seasonal construction roundup, by hey, it has made a big difference!
- Storage shed on the hitch. In it, we store propane, the breaker box, tools, and a hose. If we ever get solar, it can store batteries and supplies.
- Shed roof covered with ice shield and metal roofing and trim.
- Shed doors built, sided with cedar, attached with hinges and closed with a hasp lock. Incredibly, the first blustery winds of fall bent a hinge and broke the lock off! So this isn’t technically done anymore, but . . . we’re going to include it here anyway.
- And a set of beautifully fragrant wooden coasters for my birthday! We had a good laugh when Big gave them to me. They’re so cute and so. . . tiny house!
