Tiny House Interior: Decorating

Well, seeing as it’s the fourth month of winter, I figured it was time to make some insulated curtains for our tiny house that we have been living in since May 2012.  Of course, I’ve been thinking about the curtains since… oh, maybe October of last year, but I was stalled because I couldn’t decide what color they should be.

Since it’s a small house, everything needs to relate, so I didn’t want to just add a new color or pattern.  I finally decided to go with a color scheme of gray and yellow throughout the house and I really like how it’s turned out!

Starting the Beehive Mobile Mini Mart . We have the trailer!

We have the trailer for our client’s project: The Beehive Mobile Mini Mart!  Very exciting.  We’ll be starting the build next week and at last I’ll have something exciting to blog about again!  And You all will have another build to follow along on!  And our client will have a new mini mobile business!

We had this trailer custom built to have integral jack stands as well as a full width 8′-0″ wide platform.  Framing and anchor bolts will be a breeze with this wider foundation.

The trailer is 8′-0″ wide by 16′-0″ long and the store will be 14′-0″ long with a 2′-0″ deck on the rear.  You can read more about the design of the tiny store and Clothesline’s client in this previous blog post.

You can follow along with us when we start building next week.  Search “Beehive” here on our blog or click on the ‘Beehive Mini Mart’ category in the right hand column.

Getting this trailer reminds me of when we bought our trailer to build a tiny house for ourselves.  The trailer was used and required quite a bit of work to convert it from a car hauler to a foundation for a house.  I am a fan of re-purposing, but when it comes to the foundation for a structure…we’re excited to start the build on a new, clean slate.

Take care and stay posted…
