Happy Saturday! Today is my sister Erin’s birthday. 26 years old. Happy birthday Enna!
Yesterday we did more clear-coating of the wood (boo, I hate polyurethane. but it works.) Shane got some baseboard / trim installed (which I forgot to get pictures of! dangit) We installed our incinerating toilet! So exciting.
We are using an Incinolet incinerating toilet so we have no blackwater / sewage. They retail for around $1,600. Yeah. But we found ours locally for only $800. We’ll see very soon how it works! Click Here for an old post I wrote on the toilet when we bought it.
Our plumber installed the plumbing in the shower and it looks great. All exposed piping, with a small nozzle for the sink which we installed in the shower for teeth-brushing / face-washing.
Also, Shane got the light fixtures installed and they work great! We’re using CFL’s for now, but might switch to LED’s. Here’s an Ikea-hack sconce I made out of a frosted glass table lamp I had:
The kitchen light fixtures are also made out of galvanized plumbing pipe and provide excellent illumination at the kitchen work surfaces, as well as general overall light for the kitchen / living / great room.
I am going through some of my stuff this morning – trying to organize and pare down. I am a collector and have boxes of scraps of paper and fabric and wallpaper (and boxes of smaller boxes) and packaging and anything else that might be useful. Shane likes to comment “I am so glad I had that house fire, it made things so much easier.” (Shane had a house of his burn down 5-10 years ago). Well Shane, not all of us are fortunate enough to have all of our stuff burn up in a house fire. Ha!
Okay, I better get out to the shop now, we’re really going to take it out for a drive today – do a video – and take some photos. Yesterday we made it over 20,000 hits on this website. There is definitely some interest in Tiny Houses! And I can see why.
Hope all is well with everyone!
