We’ve been installing drywall inside the tiny house the past two days and it is so nice to get a finished material installed inside. Feels like we’re getting closer to moving in!
And yes, before you freak out, we know drywall has not been used before in tiny houses, and to be honest, of course we are a little concerned about how it will perform with the vibration from moving the house. But, drywall was $300 compared to $900 or more for wood interior wall and ceiling paneling. And aesthetically, we’d like to have a smooth, clean, bright, white surface inside to help create the illusion of a more spacious interior. So, we’ve special ordered custom angle molding to eliminate traditional tape joints at the corners, and we shall see how it holds up!
Here’s a photo of us getting the first piece installed on the ceiling. We went with 4’x12′ sheets wherever possible to eliminate seams and joints.
Here’s two sheets of drywall on the ceiling:
Here’s a photo of the front room (living and kitchen) mostly rocked out.
And a carpenter-style love note from Shane! Awwww. I’m so lucky.
Here’s a photo towards the back bedroom:
And here’s a picture of Shane using a Tiny House-sized broom: a paint brush!
We also got all of the metal roofing installed, minus the ridge cap. It’s so nice to be getting things wrapped up. We only have a month more to finish the tiny house before we’ll be living in it. We also need to be finding a place to park our new casita. We have a few leads and need to call around. But it’s also based on if we can keep finding employment here in Prescott. Arizona was hit pretty hard by this economic depression and there is very little construction or architecture work happening.
In other news, our puppy Rio got neutered today… he’s doing fine.
I’ll leave you with a current time lapse video of our progress so far:
