Tiny by Design - Floor

The next stage was laying the floor which meant that some decisions had to be made about the floor plan. There are some design principles which are true no matter how  large or small a place is. These include light coming from 2 sides and a sense of shelter and welcome when arriving which led to us adopting one of Jay Shaffer's basic designs. 

Therefore to delineate the entry from the rest of the tiny house, we used hardwood on the 'verandah' and pine inside. Then we finished it with a tung oil and polyurethane product. Unfortunately outside work called and so the project languished for a few months.

The next exciting stage was getting the frame up. Now we could see proportions and get a sense of the space. Having only seen tiny houses online often with photos taken with a fish eye lens, standing in the space is unique. 

Christmas called and outside work so it wasn't until we had some friends staying from Canada that we were able to get moving again. Next instalment: The roof.
