Floating stairs up to storage loft will have a metal base (being painted here) under butcher block. They'll be affixed to the pine walls.
We'll make a minor design adjustment by replacing the top cedar beams on the front and side of the house with freshly-painted, white cedar. I felt this looked too black. There will be a slight over-hang of the metal roof, which will also be black. The front deck will be covered by an awning and it will have a clear, L-shaped rain & wind barrier wall - see photo of plastic materials that look like glass.
The pocket door from the sound room to the washroom and on the inside of the washroom will be painted red. The opposite side of these doors will be painted "zesty lime", which you will see from the front of the house/kitchen side.
Tinted plastics options (by Robertson Plastics in Surrey, BC) for wind & rain protection walls on my front deck. I think I'll choose clear. It has a UV protection filter.
My builder patiently worked with me to figure out how to make shelving to place all my instruments in my sound healing room. Hopefully I got it right...
The Eccotemp FVI12-LP tankless water heater (installed in a protruding cabinet at the back of my tiny house) is a liquid propane fired, forced vent, 3.4 GPM indoor tankless water heater designed for small to medium hot water production where you need more than one hot water application at the same time. The unit comes with a horizontal stainless steel vent kit, ready to install. The 110 volt UL listed power cord powers the internal exhaust fan and digital display. It only pulls about 2 watts idol and 10 watts during operation, making it ideal for energy conservation. The unit has a water pressure activated (40 PSI minimum ) electronic ignition. Eccotemp also has 24/7 tech support available 866-356-1992.
Shower tray is installed. Big box reno stores don't sell showers small enough to fit my tiny house, so mine will be custom-built. Walls will be coming in from Robertson's Plastics in Surrey, BC. They will look like glass.
View from front door. Wall designates the start of the bathroom. The closed-cell spray foam insulation is completely water resistant, rated R21. The interior walls are pine and they have just the first coat-primer applied.
I'll have 2 air filtration units (that white circle is a hole to the outside where the ceramic German-designed Lunos system, sold by Ecogenia in Quebec, will be installed): - Especially in a small space ... "Moisture often comes from carpets, paint, breathing and bathrooms, causing condensation on the walls. With the new ventilation, LUNOS regulates moisture depending on the temperature rate. Its low voltage electric motor performs as a change of direction by means of a ceramic ball of which is inserted inside a tube, thereby heating the energy on one side while collecting the fresh air from the outside, on the other side. LUNOS therefore provides the necessary amount of air in a steady mode, from the outwards inwards, quickly and discretely with its improved sound absorber. So there's some fresh air coming in, without any noise, wind or polluted substances."
My tiny house interior pine walls are being given a paint primer coating. The tongue & grooves of the wood all need to be painted white because when you drive a tiny house on the road, minor shifting of the structure can occur - and you wouldn't want to see an unpainted surface appear in the groove area!!!
I want my tiny house to have a modern look. This is a test piece of exterior cedar siding, which has the Ebony black stain I'll have. I was concerned that the knots in the cedar would really bug me and I wanted to minimize them from showing through. The builder worked with a paint company to design this stain - because the off-the-shelf one at Canada's major building supply store was not going to be dark enough for me! Yes, call me lucky - my tiny home builder went the extra mile!!!
