Working on the Roof, Bathroom, Electric, Plumbing, and a Deck (Tiny House Part 4)

It’s been a while since I’ve posted an update on our tiny house! (Here are parts 1, 2, and 3) So this post covers the main milestones from the past two months, wherein we also got married. 😉



We chose a light gray color for the metal roof – light so it reflects heat, yet not stark white, which we thought was a bit much visually.


Here’s the back of the house, with the finished roof!


Installing the shower…


And Grandpa framing in the bathroom! The bathroom, which is slightly smaller than 5′ x 8′, is the only real room in the house.


There is a tiny loft for storage above the bathroom, with a wall on one side.


Then Judah put up drywall in the bathroom and our water heater. We chose a tankless water heater because we don’t really have enough space for a “regular” water heater. It’s mounted right above where the toilet will go.


This picture gives you an idea of how big the house feels. It also shows the plumbing along the bathroom wall, which is also a kitchen wall (on the side you’re looking at here). We have the plumbing almost completely finished.



I got to help Judah with wiring a few times and, like the plumbing, it’s almost all the way done!



Now we have a deck!! It’s beautiful, and sure beats having to step up two feet to get in the door like we had to before.

And that’s where we’re at right now. Next up are plumbing, electrical, and building inspections, then we can get to the fun parts (for me) like insulating and finishing the inside walls, putting flooring in, and painting the outside! Stay tuned!
