Construction / Phase 4

Doors, Sinks & Hot Water are Some of My Favorite Things

HURRAH.

Our bathroom is finally got some love. The glass shower doors are installed. It was tough finding something that would work in such a small space but the bifold door is the greatest thing ever. This allows us to get in & out of the shower easily without taking up extra space and we can still have a bathroom sink.

It is installed with proper pipes. I was so proud of Jay for accomplishing this bit of plumbing by himself. Cheers to him. (: Okay, the sink is great but the best part is that our hot water works perfect now. It used to take forever for the kitchen sink & shower to get hot but now it’s almost immediate. This has made me a very happy camper.

We are also done with the sliding barn doors for our bath/study. The pocket door between the bath & study is finally installed as well.

Speaking of doors… We’ve put in most of our kitchen cabinet/drawer doors.

We also put up some shelves in the living room.

Best of all, there is a new addition to the tiny house and it is my most favorite thing.

A genuine black forest German cuckoo clock.

Lastly, here is a sneak peek of what we are working on outside of the house now that summer is here. (:

More on this next time!

  1. Hi I was wondering how are your sliding doors and pocket door set up working out? I really love the design of the house, I’ve been planning on using it for my own for awhile now. I found the design on Humble Homes first, and was really excited to see that you had a blog all about it! It’s a wonderful design you guys did a great job:)

    I have a blog about my project too actually, http://tinyakadventure.com

    • The doors are working out perfectly! The barn doors are great since we dont have enough clearance for a regular door plus they look great. The pocket door is efficient for when we want privacy in the bathroom but then we can tuck it away when we want the space to feel bigger. Good luck with your project! (I vote for the Blue Jay btw) 😉

      • Thank you, I’m a fan:) My only problem with the doors is that I’ll actually be using the office space for my 2 little girls, so I’m not sure I want the bathroom so intimately connected to their room. I bet I could make some light weight thin doors or maybe some wooden accordion doors. oh but those get caught on the track…RESEARCH!

      • Initially we had the kitchen longer than wider on one side of the house with the bathroom on the other side of the house next to the kitchen (with sliding doors for access), and then the whole end (right side) of the house was the study with another sliding door from the kitchen for access to the study. That might be a better choice for you if you dont want the bathroom to share a door with the bedroom you want to have there. I hope you find the right solution for your needs. 🙂
