Update 10.11.12

October 11, 2012 § 4 Comments

Here is a quick update, I will let the pictures explain.  I had hoped I would have gotten a little more done , I won’t be able to work on it this weekend because I will be partaking in the awesome McLaughlin Halloween family tradition in Washington.

I get to meet Christopher and Merete in the morning and take part in the American Planning Associations Planning Conference and be a part of a panel which gets to preview Chris and Merete’s film Tiny: A story of Living Small before anyone else, neener-neener! 🙂 Then I get to be a part of a panel to talk about tiny houses, wish me luck, I will update as soon as I know what it’s all about :).  I can hardly wait!

I hope everyone is having an amazing week, here are some pictures:

    Just curious why no spray foam around the foam board insulation?
    It would help increase the effectiveness of the foam board insulation. It would also stop warm moist air from reaching the exterior sheeting and creating condensation on it.

      I will spray foam the gaps behind the switches and any other sizable gaps either just before dry-walling or just after if I can fit the nozzle in there. It is fairly well sealed as it is, but I will definitely fill the majority of the gaps still, I don’t want the foam to expand out too far where it will be difficult to drywall over it (hence waiting until after with the switches. There are also a few spots I have opted to go with batt insulation, like around the vent pipes so I don’t have to cut up the foam, it’s sort of a bear to do that. You are absolutely right about the condensation issue, I feel confident I will be A-O-K there. Thanks so much for the comment!

  • Macy:
    Great job on the panel yesterday and so nice to meet you. Love to stop by and see the progress sometime before the snow flies, and yes to the podcast. You have my card, so feel free to shoot me an email.

      Hi Erik!
      Thanks for visiting my site! It was a pleasure to sit on the panel with you yesterday, you are a great asset to have around! I really appreciated your incites and views, it was refreshing to hear! It sounds like the podcast schedule is filled up through the end of the year (tinyrevolution.us is who actually puts together the podcasts but I try to help out and suggest great guests as much as I can) but I will definitely do what I can to get you online, I think a lot of people could really benefit from your perspectives.
      You are more than welcome to swing by at any point to check out the house, feel free to shoot me an email at mizacy@gmail.com and we can figure out a time that works, I am genrally out there most evenings. Right now is a great time to see the house, you can see all the structure, from this point forward finishes are going up which is also exciting! Thanks again!
