Welcome to the tiny house project! Come on in…
This is the main living area, which leads right into the kitchen:
(If you’ve been following along on Instagram stories, you may have had a sneak peek into my design plan for the kitchen…corrugated metal, open shelving, and a cup rack are a few things on this lady’s wish list.). Now if we turn around, you’ll see the staircase heading to the loft upstairs, and the hallway which leads to the loo and the master bedroom:
I actually think there is more pantry storage in here than in our house on blueberry hill :-)….
…A peek inside the loo:
And right outside here is where you’ll find the master bedroom:
Now, let’s head to the loft area… aka kid zone:
And last, but certainly not least… a peek outdoors for a breath of fresh air:
First on our list was to update the flooring in the loft and in the main living space. We originally chose some faux wood peel and stick flooring, but were displeased with how it was adhering to the floor. So? Off to Pinterest for a little DIY inspiration we went. We stumbled on a few great tutorials on plywood planked flooring. Sold.
We bought 4×8 sheets of plywood and asked that they rip them into 8″ planks. *Note, if you have them rip wood for you… make absolute sure they are even. Many of our pieces were cut uneven and we’ll be re-ripping them ourselves…
Once we got the pieces home, we took a hand sander and sanded each piece so they are soft as a baby’s bottom.
Then, I used Minwax “Early American” to stain them and bring out that gorgeous wood grain.
Instead of putting the poly right on, we chose to install first and will apply the poly once everything is set.
And, in between sanding and rug removal…I snuck in a little primer on the walls and an update on the window casings. I chose to use, “Cracked Pepper” by Valspar on the trim and railings:
And I’ll be painting the walls “Bistro White” by Valspar, which will help the windows and railing really take center stage.
Next up? The fun part – design boards. I’m having a ball over here putting together some ideas and will be sharing it all here and on Instagram….so stay tuned!
