This blog is about our progress, successes and struggles during our Tiny House build. I want to write about what the experience has really been like, what a Tiny House is, and why we chose to do it.
We have been so excited to have the electrical and plumbing finished! There are still a few finishing touches to be done but we went ahead and started doing what we could. We were so thankful to have my step-dad as our electrician who has helped us tremendously by doing this for us and teaching us so much along the way. A giant thank you to Nicks parents as well for getting us awesome scissor jacks! These allowed us to level our house for wall insulation and will continue to keep us off the ground for years to come. This progress point has been eagerly awaited and we quickly started into the insulating. It only took us a couple days to finish that and then we started a small section of the plywood walls. Once all the 3/8 in. plywood has been put up, we will adhere iron-ply to achieve our 1/2 in. width total and make the wall look like one cohesive panel. The closer we are to finishing our house, the more of a concern it is for us to find a place to keep it and live in it. We are fortunate to live on Bainbridge Island where there are many areas and approaches to be explored. We would love for our Bainbridge blog readers to keep an ear out for someone easy going and open to this idea. There are many farms, horse pastures, and people who own a few acres that we are hoping to connect with.
