Sunday, March 6th, 2011:
Reworked one of the kitchen cabinet doors as well as built and installed another clothing closet door. Closet door was built out of 1X3’s and the knotty pine wall panelling that we’re using throughout the tiny house. Hung the door on three cabinet hinges, and capped the door off with pine corner trim. The trim really makes the doors look sharp, for sure.
This is the beginning of our busy months at Camp Ondessonk, and we’re finding that we are able to get out to work on the tiny house on average of about half a day per week, so progress has slowed quite a bit. We are still aiming to wrap up the bulk of the construction and finish-work by the start of summer camp (end of May), and even at a slower pace should be able to meet that deadline.
The yet-to-do list looks something like this:
Plumbing- finish running the copper water pipe, put in drainage system, hook up water tank and water pump.
Install stainless steel shower stall, hook up water to shower fixture.
Install composting toilet venting system.
Put up Eastern Red Cedar ceiling in bathroom.
Trim bathroom window.
Hang pine bathroom door.
Finish up knotty pine wall in kitchen.
Put up stainless steel splash guard behind kitchen stove.
Trim kitchen windows and counter edge.
Build kitchen wall cabinets.
Install washer/dryer combo and build cabinate around it.
Build sleeping loft closets and storage areas.
Build sleeping loft access ladder.
Trim storage loft window.
Finish storage loft ‘closets’.
