Tiny Progress: Drywall Mudding and Plaster

Well, we’re almost done with our drywall.  We’ve got it all taped and mudded and plastered and we purchased the interior paint (Sherwin Williams ‘Alabaster’)  yesterday so we’re almost ready to cover it up!

Living Room - with Drywall

What a pain.  Tons of sanding.  But it’s going to be so pretty and smooth and white inside.  Sanding action photo:

Tiny Progress: still working on Drywall Inside…

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.  Continue reading

Tiny Progress: Drywall Inside

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.  Continue reading

Tiny House Construction: Insulation

We’ve been busy installing our insulation in the Tiny House we are building.  We went with a closed cell foam board insulation product that will have a high R-value and will also offer some extra structural reinforcing.

We wanted to have the house spray-foamed with 2 lb. foam, but alas, the price came in way too high ($1,600).  We found this insulation on craigslist for $400 for the whole lot.  A great deal, but we’ve spent three days installing it, which is a long time.  It’s a very tedious process!  First, we measure the wall cavity it needs to fit into…  Continue reading

Tiny House: Interior Design Ideas

Folding table that doubles as wall art: click here for website

that table idea is SO awesome, and looks quite easy to make.  we won’t have room for it in this Tiny House because our wall heater is where a table would need to fold up, but a really great idea.  (is it just me, or does it look like the girl in the photo above has a giant picture of herself for wall art?!  funny.)

I love this wood and white look:

and here’s a plywood interior:  (a little more plywood than we could handle, but these wall and ceiling finishes would work in a tiny, mobile house because of their inherent flexibility)

here’s more Plywood! this time plywood walls AND floors:

It looks like a metal ceiling, like a shipping container, but corrugated metal roofing panels could be used for a modern tiny house ceiling finish.  the acoustics might be bad, but that could be accommodated with textiles in curtains or seating, or with cork flooring.

we’ve been obsessed with trying to use plywood in our design, but it’s actually quite expensive.  (AC grade or sanded plywood is $45 to $50 a sheet for a decent thickness.)

this is an open shelving design that looks pretty stunning with the green accent wall:

would love to see a tiny house with color in it!  but my tendency is definitely toward white…  I feel like it must be white and light and bright with almost NO texture in order to feel bigger…  the good thing with a tiny house is that you can paint and re-paint and re-paint again with very little paint and money spent!

would love to hear about any tiny house interior design ideas you all might have…

take care,
