Ceiling Insulating and Covering

Ceiling Insulating and Covering

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!

Interior Walls

Hello blog followers, This weekend we worked on covering up some of the interior walls. We had left over metal wall cladding from the exterior and decided to use some on a few of the walls including the kitchen. its light weight, durable, and water proof so its great for the kitchen area.

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 and cladding the roof

Hi everyone, Cori and I worked on framing and cladding the roof today. We framed it with the same building timbers as the walls: lightweight and cheap! The walls and roof were first wrapped in building paper, then we used the second hand corrugated iron we bought for the roof. It worked awesome!!

Silly old Llamas!!

We thought it would be nice if we could get some extra light in through the roof, so we added a skylight.
