Update – Wall Insulation done
May 13, 2012 § 4 Comments
Big long day! Lots got done.
First, I want to say, the soap.shampoo and toothpaste I bought recently from soapforgoodnesssake.com, in an effort to clarify my grey water tank so that when I move into my tiny place I can use the excess water for my garden is FANTASTIC, I love it. I sort of thought I would feel like a dirty hippie for at least a few days but it is not the case at all. The shampoo is the best I have ever used, my hair is clean without being greasy or dried out, the toothpaste tastes a little funny but I am quickly getting used to it and even starting to like it. The soap is always amazing! I highly recommend the pumpkin, the avocado AND the rose petal. Good stuff. (this is a completely unsolicited shout out, FYI)
In tiny house construction news, I finished the wall insulation!!! It felt like it was going to go on forever but I imagine my swing at it was a lot easier than some others. This was the area where I have heard the most complaints from other tiny house people so I streamlined it :). In standard construction you would wire the house and insulate around that, it is a little tougher using ridged insulation. There are building codes in place that make this the ‘standard construction’. For now tiny houses have no ‘codes’, so I took liberties :). It may be a little unclear still with this post but hopefully this gives the general idea of how I am going to wire.
Next weekend I plan to bring the house out into the daylight and install the roof, It will be nice to finally be enclosed! Also, I finally brought my camera out to snap some pictures, I put on my little wide angle attachment and here you are!
