Saturday Tiny House Work

ptdc0251-e1439008396559.jpg

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!

Pull-out rubbish bin

Hello everyone, We installed a pull out rubbish can underneath our counter. We paid 25 dollars for it on trade me, a few days later we saw it for sale at Bunning's for $125! We really know how to find a bargain.

After the trash cans were fitted, we tackled the storage crates by cutting them to size and fitting them so the bed can still pull out in between them.

Roof and corner flashing

Hello everyone, Today was a beautiful Autumn day in New Zealand! I finished the roof and corner flashing but still have to flash around the windows at a later date. I attached the Flashing with some rubber washer screws and sealed the corners and seams with some waterproof sealer. Looks pretty flash haha!!

Finishing the Exterior

Hello everyone, We have finally finished the outside minus a few bits of flashing around the windows and on the corners of the walls. IMG_1690 IMG_1691 IMG_1692 IMG_1693 IMG_1694 IMG_1695

Behind this wall with the two windows is going to be our kitchen. We are going to install two planter boxes underneath the windows for fresh herbs.

Framing the walls

We framed all of our walls with 35x75mm timber. They are all screwed together with 75mm wood screws. The timbers are actually really light weight and only cost 1.75 per meter. IMG_1612 IMG_1616 IMG_1617 IMG_1618

All of our windows and front door was a total of 640.00 dollars. They are all doubled glazed and were purchased from Brown Sparrow recycled building materials here in Christchurch. The Stainless steel counter top was 100.00 from the same place. IMG_1613 IMG_1614 IMG_1615
