I feel as though all of my captions have become lists of things being checked off of the list! It's a weird feeling to think back to February when my dad and I would put how close we were to being done into percentage form. "35% done" he'd say... we joke now as we get into fractions of a percent of being finished.
This weekend was a lot of fun for me, since I got to work a lot with my grandpa, while also going out on my own and chipping away at painting (I have found that it's really a peaceful place to be). As you can see, the window seat is painted a very pale purple, which I think will look awesome with the dark blue fabric for the cushions. The door is almost a wine red; my mom isn't a fan, she says it's not earthy enough. I agree, but I also think it turned out really nice and adds a fun, edgy touch.
My mom and I are slowly but surely working on the cushions! Down below is me working on the cushion covers, which will then have the final fabric on the top.
Also exciting, is the shower is complete! We used extra metal from the roof on the sides, and on the bottom my grandpa created a beautiful teak base (I'm sorry I couldn't squeeze it into the picture!). Not only does the shower look awesome, but the plumbing is FINALLY complete, so I can turn all the water on throughout the house!!
There has been lots of other little things completed so I'll have to put more pictures up soon, but I'll throw them out there anyways: my grandpa and I have been slowly but surely putting up light fixtures, the appliances came, and a couple cool mirrors have been added!
I hope everyone is having an awesome week; I want to challenge you all to step out of your comfort zones, do something adventurous or try something new! You won't be disappointed!
One of my favorite parts about this project is that I get a little taste of a bunch of different occupations. I've been able to try electrical, building, insulation, and now masonry! I got to help my dad fill in the dark grout in the kitchen, which was a messy, but rewarding process (and it looks awesome!). We also have been trying to figure out getting water to the house; that's one thing that they often don't share on all of the television shows. They show these amazing tiny homes with really cool features, and they just drive them away. I never thought about it before until I'm right in the thick of it. How do get electricity, what do they do with their grey water, and where do they get their water supply? These are all things you have to think about when you take your Tiny House on the road! The top right photo is of me just catching the end of my dad and grandpa trenching a path for a water line from my family's main well.
