Unpacking and getting things “just right” has been a week-long process and I’m still going. Friday was the first night sleeping in the tiny home and it was wonderful! The house takes on a whole new feeling at night with the soft glow from the candles and oil lamps (yes I have real lights too, but they don’t impart the same “feel”). It was a bit stuffy and warm in the loft the other night because I don’t have a fan going yet. The space feels so cozy, not unlike the feeling I had sleeping in the tipi. I was able to purchase and install some cabinets in the kitchen and get the sink put in. I don’t have water yet because I’m still waiting for Doug to finish up the bump-out for the propane and water heater. I pick that up on Tuesday. I’m pretty much all decorated up, there are a few things in boxes that I haven’t decided if I’m going to keep or not.
Here is the current “TO DO” list:
- Hook up propane and water
- Order and install solar panels
- Build custom couch for living room
- Hook up wood stove
- purchase and hang drapes
- Build deck
- Install some type of paneling around outside to hide trailer/wheels
- Hook up television and stereo
That’s pretty much the list. Then it’s time to start splitting wood and getting ready for winter. LOL
Here are some pictures of what’s been done thus far. I hope everyone had a fun 4th and your puppies were not too shook-up from the loud booms!
