Hello blog readers! Just as Christchurch, NZ had its first marathon since the February Earthquakes, we also had an intense marathon. It didn't involve running but on Saturday, Sunday and Monday we put in over 8 hours every day at the tiny house. We have been packing lunches for every day of the week. This is our life. Enjoy. SATURDAY and SUNDAY: SHOWER TIME! One of the trials of building a tiny house is the constant shifting of stuff- from one end to another and the tight spaces that forces you to install and build in a certain order. For example we HAD to get the platform installed in order to build the bathroom walls which couldn't be done until we installed the shower pan which was blocking the gas pipe that needed to be brazed. So we first made some room for the piping to fit into the wall.
Now this copper pipe needs to leave the tiny house and enter our utility box! So out the wall it goes. The braising of the elbow begins! [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-7im6URV3Q]
All done, now we can put in our shower!
We have a bathroom now!
MONDAY: Celebrating the Queen's Birthday!
So we started with the plumbing of the bathroom sink and getting some more piping out of the house on Monday. Working in beautiful 67 degree weather was really tough! The professional photographer didn't show up until after all that was done. Pat worked on the wall boards and Cori finished insulating the walls! Gradual pictures of our progress to follow: (I hope you like lots of pictures!)
AND WE ARE DONE FOR THE WEEKEND! The whole house is insulated (for free with donated/found insulation), the statement wall is complete (using free wood- seriously, everything we worked on Monday was FREE), the copper piping is out of the house and the plumbing is all set. Every weekend I fall more and more in love with our tiny house. Pat and Cori OUT BONUS VIDEO- IT'S A LITTLE SHAKY [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otE7IbKvR6E&w=420&h=315]
