Tiny House Interior Progress: Painting / Millwork / Deck / Stairs

I am finally getting around to posting our progress!  This week has been busy, as usual, and getting home after 8pm I’ve been too lazy to post anything….  So, this will be a huge conglomerate post on what we’ve been working on lately in finishing up the Tiny House:

  • Painting of the Interior
  • Front Porch / Deck
  • Millwork / Casework / Cabinetry
  • Interior Stairs

First, we have the interior painted.  We started rolling it, but that took forever, so Shane sprayed it out.  We used Sherwin Williams “Alabaster” in an eggshell finish.

And… actually I think those photos were of the plaster finish, before painting…  oooops.  Painted interior in millwork photos below…

We also started on the kitchen cabinetry!  Which is awesome, because it’s really getting exciting to imagine using the space.

Stairs with storage leading up to the bed platform in the bedroom. A stair on each side so we each have storage drawers for clothes.

Also, Shane built an exterior deck on the back / front of the house.  (at the front door).  It is so beautiful and will be so wonderful to sit outside in the morning drinking coffee.

Shane used the car ramps that came with our trailer for the deck foundation.

I love how Shane arranged the boards for the deck. Beautiful natural wood pattern.

The deck frame installed on the car ramps.

And… I forgot to take an overall photo of the finished deck installed!  Well, it’s still there, so I’ll post a photo soon.

We also purchased our refrigerator – it will go under the counter and is 5.6 cubic feet (which is large for an undercounter fridge) won’t have a freezer, but has a glass door and a stainless steel frame.

I am also working on custom light fixtures which will be made out of galvanized plumbing pipe.  I will post photos of those once I get them completed.

Hope all is well with everyone and thanks for following along!  Two more weeks to finish!!

take care,

    Your progress is amazing! You definitely have the vision. Storage steps very clever idea, nicely executed. The matching up of your deck boards speaks volumes about your abilities and experience. You guys are good at what you do.
    Some questions:
    Did you weld or bolt the car ramps to the trailer frame?
    Did you glue and screw the sheetrock? Your seams look like tiny grout channels. Is that the result of your secret solution to cracking joints? You’re not going to share that, are you? A Clothesline exclusive!

  6. Hello George,
    Thanks for your comments, we enjoy hearing from everyone. As to your questions the deck/car ramps I bolted them in so we can remove the deck if ever needed. I was going to make the deck fold up but not now maybe in the future
    As to the sheetrock we did glue and screw it to the framing, and your right the solution is a Clothesline Exclusive. Thanks for asking through.

    Stay posted, I have finally finished the wiring in my truck for the gooseneck and we are going to be taking it out for a photo shot here in the next few days. I’m also just about finished with the trim work and now to lay in the flooring. Photo’s coming soon.
