Tiny House: The Move

October 3, 2018 Categories Tiny House

It’s been a little over three years since I randomly decided to build a tiny house and about two years since I started constructing it. For the most part, it has been finished since last year. It took me roughly 70 full days to build the entire thing, but those 70 days were spread out … Continue reading Tiny House: The Move

Driveway Install

August 22, 2018 Categories Tiny House

Yesterday I had a gravel driveway installed out at the land and boy does it make a difference! Since even before I owned the land, there’s only been a makeshift driveway in place (and a few years ago it was all woods). For the most part, the simple driveway worked well for being able to … Continue reading Driveway Install

Fire Pit

July 30, 2018 Categories Tiny House

This past weekend I took on the simple task of building a fire pit. It’s one of the first things I’m doing to the land because I can’t imagine having land in the country without one. It still needs some seating added and a few more bags of rock around the outside, but I’m pretty … Continue reading Fire Pit

I Bought Land (Finally)

July 9, 2018 Categories Tiny House

OK, so really this is old news and I’m just now posting about it. I bought a small chunk of land back at the end of April. I’ve never bought land before, but the process was fairly simple. Since I bought it from people I know, I was able to do a Quitclaim Deed, then … Continue reading I Bought Land (Finally)

Tiny House: Bathroom

September 26, 2017 Categories Tiny House

My bathroom is extraordinarily simple. It has a small shower, a window, and a compost toilet. As you can tell by the pictures, it has been a work-in-progress for a very long time. My shower is only 32x32in. It was one of the first things I installed in the house way back in May. I … Continue reading Tiny House: Bathroom

Tiny House: Kitchen (Part 2)

September 25, 2017 Categories Tiny House

For the past couple weekends I’ve been mainly working on building the last of my kitchen cabinets. I’ve never actually built real cabinets like this before, but I built them to follow as close to my interpretation of the¬†Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association specification¬†as I could. For added rigidity, I didn’t make my shelves adjustable. Instead, … Continue reading Tiny House: Kitchen (Part 2)

Tiny House: Building a Bed

September 4, 2017 Categories Tiny House

I finished up my bed/couch/lounge today and not only do I love it, but it’s surprisingly comfortable and I have already made use of some of its many storage compartments. I wouldn’t call the bed fancy in any way, but it’s definitely functional and multi-purposed. I started by building a basic raised platform directly attached … Continue reading Tiny House: Building a Bed

Tiny House: Sliding Door

September 2, 2017 Categories Tiny House

It feels like it took forever to be able to build and install my sliding door for my bathroom, but it’s finally mounted up on the wall and I love it. I honestly didn’t think I would like it as much as I do. I haven’t been able to build or install it until recently … Continue reading Tiny House: Sliding Door

Tiny House: Kitchen (Part 1)

August 13, 2017 Categories Tiny House

Today was a small win over what seemed far too long to build such a small cabinet for my kitchen. Admittedly, I’m not actually done. My sink is not caulked down yet and I still have to connect the plumbing, but for the most part, the base cabinet is done. I plan on building upper … Continue reading Tiny House: Kitchen (Part 1)

Tiny House: Pressurized Water System

July 9, 2017 Categories Tiny House

One of the many conveniences about modern living that people often take for granted is having clean, running water. I’ve lived in multiple places during my life where running water wasn’t a luxury that was available. Even though I hope to live in my tiny house as more of an off-grid thing, I still want … Continue reading Tiny House: Pressurized Water System
