Tiny House Windows: flashing video, installing trim, painting

We’re plugging away on construction of our Tiny House.  We’ve had the plumber out installing propane and water lines.  Our mechanic is fixing up the trailer.  And we’ve installed windows, flashing, window trim and started painting the exterior trim.

Shane did a video of how to properly install window flashing:

Here are some photos of installing window trim and painting the exterior trim:

Here’s our plumber and mechanic working on the Tiny House:

It’s surprising how even though the house is super small, it still takes a lot of time to get everything installed.  Building on a trailer platform adds some complexities.

Shane built a box for the water heater.  It’s located outside the kitchen, right between the kitchen sink and the shower, our two hot water needs.

It comes into the kitchen on the interior but we’ll build cabinetry around it.

We’re using a Rheem on-demand gas/propane exterior water heater:

Our propane tanks are on the front tongue of the gooseneck / trailer hitch.  The piping runs back to the water heater and propane heater via an exterior channel we built under the floor platform.  This channel will be closed in once we get piping / plumbing installed.

Okay, off to the shop to do more painting!  We should be getting our metal roofing in this week, as well as scheduling the spray foam insulation for the exterior walls and roof.  We’ll keep you posted!

have a great day!
