Well, here is a long overdue update on our progress building the Beehive Mobile Mini Mart for our client in Colorado. The last post I wrote about it we were doing exterior siding, staining and painting and we’ve now finished out the interior.
Shane found beautiful beetle kill / blue-stain pine siding for the Tiny House interior walls at our local lumber yard.
We ended up using EcoTouch fiberglass insulation. Zero voc’s and almost the R-value of foam. I went to a lecture on foam insulation and while it performs, it’s hard to feel good about putting a chemical product into the world that will never go away… Have you seen the film “Garbage Island”?? It’s sad. Plastic never goes away, it just gets smaller and smaller.
I can be such a bleeding environmentalist… here’s a quote from Sand County Almanac by Aldo Leopold:

And I really need to do a post about progress on our current tiny house project underway, the Beehive Mobile Mini Mart. Soon! We’re just so busy working on it, I haven’t had time to blog.
The NY Daily News wrote a really nice article about us living in our tiny house. Click the photo to read the article…
NY Daily News wrote a story about Clothesline Tiny Homes.
And… we’ve had over 200,000 hits on our website! We created the website a little over a year ago, so I guess there is a lot of interest in living tiny. We’ve been working on the Beehive tiny house and I’ll do an update soon. Hope everyone is well!
I had to re-blog this video I just saw on Treehugger, a spoof about tiny houses and sustainability. Hilarious. Watch it through to the end, the last few lines are the funniest…
