Hello blog followers, Today at the tiny house we finished off the door for the utilities box, secured the last bolt fixing the house to the trailer, removed our kitchen cabinets to sand and repaint, and built a small shelf for the kitchen out of some free items we had laying around. The weather turned out to be really nice!

Hi everyone, Today at the tiny house we insulated and covered our ceiling. It has felt like forever that the ceiling has been not finished, but today we got it done! Some really good friend of ours had some extra polystyrene laying around. We took what they gave us and bought what we needed and today got around to finishing our ceiling. That stuff sure does make a hell of a mess but in the end it worked out well.
After the insulation was up we calculated that we had enough left over roofing material for our ceiling. The rust, holes, scratches, and all kinds of minor imperfections gives it a good rustic look.
We also had time to build a door for our utilities box completely out of scraps we had left laying around.
Hope you like it!
Think I am looking kind of stiff haha!
Hello everyone I just wanted to talk about how to keep on a budget and get materials for a tiny house build for very cheap or free!! Yes free, I know that's exciting not many things are free these days. I got a lot of the materials that you will see in the video and pictures out of the trash. Just keep your eyes open all the time because other people's trash can be your treasure. If you see a job site with a skip (dumpster), just ask the job supervisor if you can have a quick peak in the dumpster. Another way to get stuff very cheap is by going onto trademe. I have bought many things on trademe for really good prices, for example this stainless steel sink for $10.50. Just keep looking and have some cash on hand!
I got this cable for my 12v off the grid power system in the trash. On the right is 1000 dollars worth of vinyl I purchased for a case of beer (20 bucks) and some metal grating I will probably use for shelving in the closet.
