This week was spent working on a number of odd projects in the tiny house. The first of these was continuing to spackle and sand the walls. In case you missed our previous post on the interior wall covering, we went with 1/4 plywood. There are lots of little nail holes and a few seams that needed to be filled and sanded smooth before we can prime.
We also started to work on the window and door trim, which has been an exciting finishing project to begin. Because of all the beams we decided to stick with a simple trim to keep the design uncluttered.
Finding a Plumber
One unexpected issue we’re having right now is finding a plumber to come in and do our gas line. We need to have a line installed that will connect the stove, propane refrigerator, and hot water heater to an outside gas tank. Because of minimum square footage requirements the tiny house is built outside of code, thus the point of building tiny homes on trailers in the first place. We have however, stayed within code in terms of things that pose safety concerns. These things include our woodstove and chimney installation, electrical installation, having large operable windows in the loft, ventilation, and hopefully having our gas appliances installed by a professional. We’ve recently been given some recommendations on plumbers and are looking forward to getting the lines done so that we can continue work in the kitchen.
