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:
Well, we have been getting a lot done, in spite of getting waylaid yesterday.
We found wood flooring in stock in town, and Shane is installing that today.
All cabinetry is built and all the interior trim and cabinetry is clear-coated / sealed.
The shower surround and our bathroom sink is installed:
Hello there everyone. We are just busier than a cat in a sandbox here. (quoting my Dad, in honor of him and his 60th birthday today!!! Happy birthday Dad. We love you. And you really do only seem 50.)
Shane’s been slaving away on the interior cabinets and trim and it looks awesome! I finally got a break from my pesky job to go out and do some work on our house today. (I am currently doing construction documents for 4000+ sf homes…ironic? I’m actually glad to have work)
Without further ado, here are some photos of the cabinetry / millwork / casework / trim / etc…

Just Keep Reading…
I am finally getting around to posting our progress! This week has been busy, as usual, and getting home after 8pm I’ve been too lazy to post anything…. So, this will be a huge conglomerate post on what we’ve been working on lately in finishing up the Tiny House:
- Painting of the Interior
- Front Porch / Deck
- Millwork / Casework / Cabinetry
- Interior Stairs
First, we have the interior painted. We started rolling it, but that took forever, so Shane sprayed it out. We used Sherwin Williams “Alabaster” in an eggshell finish.
