It’s been a few days since our last post, and that’s because we’ve hit a bit of an uphill climb in our race to finish building our new Tiny Home. Some things go fast. Then some things (like our siding with galvanized z-bar flashing) and drywall, take a bit longer!
Also we had our first interview this week with Andrew Odom of Tiny Revolution. We’ll let you know when that gets posted on his site. We were gloriously brilliant and witty. Well. Shane was witty, I was just trying to sound awake! Not a morning person.
We got the drywall installed two days ago, and have been installing corner bead and now plastering the edges of each sheet. It’s so exciting to not see our framing anymore.
Some photos of our installed drywall:
It looks a bit like a mess right now, but the next step is painting, and that is going to help a lot. Can’t wait to have clean smooth walls and a bright white interior.
We were talking today and we decided we want to take it for a test drive this coming week. We just have to get our new tires installed on the rims, and then it’s ready for a drive. We’re curious to see how the drywall / sheetrock is going to hold up. It does seem a bit insane to be using plaster in a moving house. But… we’re pretty pleased with the secret proprietary corner bead that we found. It’s going to eliminate the potential for cracks at joints and allow for stretch and movement.
We also got our first inquiry about design services for a tiny house – Casita Bella is getting ready to start building a tiny home and needed some framing plans. But, she found someone to do them for free. And you can’t beat that price.
Well, it’s 8:30 on a Friday night… and we just got home from working on the house about 20 minutes ago… so I’m ready to crawl into bed and watch a movie.
