tiny finishes

Not that tiny houses are ever done – as we renegotiate, redesignate, reorganize – but, a few weeks ago, the tiny got some finishing touches. There were a number of things we didn’t get to in our rush to make the initial move. BUT! Because my buildingpartnerincrime graciously came to help a few weeks ago, we finished the tiny the way we started: brushing dust and grime off long-cornered things, making new by re-visioning old.

simple, small finishing touches do make an enormous difference in the space. Though the tiny has always felt home-y, it now feels like home. Here’s what went down: (but first a pretty picture)

She's getting spacious!

Medicine cabinet, comes from an old box found in my grandmother’s garage:

Utensil holder, from used drawer found at Bring recyclery:

Drawers, re-sized from drawers found at Bring also:

Tilt drawer, from the end of old wine crate also found in my grandma’s garage:

Installed my stove cover (and sealed a friend’s ceramic tile to the top – extra pretty heat pad):

For aesthetics, this old farming-row sign adds “eye-heighth” to the room:

AND, MOST IMPORTANTLY, sealed the shower (with epoxy and old washers); I tried various methods over the last year and a half, to no avail… but now it WORKS!:

This means that everything! everything! everything! in the tiny house works!

Hooray everything! Hope your things lead you to an everything, but are not that in themselves. Love. aa.

    Hi April! I watched an interview with you on tiny house talks, which lead me to your blog! I’m about to graduate college in 2 weeks and want to build my own tiny house! I live in Portland and was hoping you might be willing to either meet with me so I can pick your brain about your tiny house building experience, or correspond through email. I look forward to talking to you!
