The Final Cabinets!

Posted By digging roots on Feb 5, 2019 in Tiny House | 1 comment


We have finally arrived at an exciting landmark in our tiny house build. After about 6 months of cabinet-building, we have finally built the final cabinets!

I always find it funny that as soon as the cabinets are built, they are immediately inhabited by random tools and stuff.

These last cabinets were the most difficult and time-consuming for Trent to build. The cabinet to the left (with the grid pattern) is a bookshelf with a ladder in the middle. This is how the kids will access their loft. Trent plans to forge some metal hand-rails to help with safety. This is where I hope to store most of my spartan homeschooling supplies, most of which are BOOKS!

The coat closet has two levels. The top is right by a window and I hope to perch some houseplants on the top. The landing is actually a nice place to hang out– I can lean on the coat closet and look out the window. This is where the child clubhouse fantasy part of the tiny house really shines: there are becoming lots of little nooks and places to hang out.

Next up: install window trim, which happens to be one of Trent’s specialties! After having installed hundreds of feet of trim in other peoples’ homes, it’s going to feel really good to install the trim in his own house.

We are hoping to have the cabinet painting underway by the beginning of March.

We are really hoping to be done by June, and it feels like the months are flying by. Now that we have moved on to another stage of the build, we are feeling pumped and super excited to be done. It feels like we really will finish. It’s great to think by summertime, we will be moving in!

Trent and I are getting two days in a row with no kids this weekend (thanks Mom and Dad!) and we are hoping to make a lot of progress. Stay tuned for next week’s update!
