Well, if you are going to have a composting toilet, it's probably wise to have someplace to compost. The main bin was made from some old pallets, and the little box was made from cut offs.
I sure wouldn't be living the tiny house life if I didn't garden, and this greenhouse will be pretty handy! Hopefully wrap it this week.
I got pretty used to this ol' outhouse. I'm not really gonna say "fond memories" or anything, but it was a nice run. And so the time came to build a toilet. It was a good project, because it didn't cost anything other then the seat and the hinges, it was entirely built from cut offs.
Yes, I know, I'll be crapping in a bucket...however, I can smile at the fact that I won't be using precious drinking water to take my poo to where ever it goes...I'm sure we don't just dump it in the ocean...who would do that...ok...I'll stop with the politics!
One of life's lil' pleasures...This was a fun project that was completed over 2 days. Day one, was building the structure and day 2 was plumbing it! It was fun because I just made it up as I went along. That is one thing I have learned, making stuff up is the most fun!
I put the siding on the ceiling of the dormers and the sleeping loft, I still have to do the storage loft, but that will be for another day...getting there...
I finally got the wood stove hooked up...this proved more difficult then I thought. I went to the local heating store and asked them for some 3" pipe for my wood stove. After they finished laughing they said, "not gonna happen, but if you can get it to 4 inch, you will have more success." So, upon failing at every stove option, I went to my local auto parts dealer and found a reducer for a car exhaust (see photo). So then I went back to the local heating store and asked for 4" pipe, and again, after they finished laughing at me they said "it needs to be custom built, see you in a week." So freezing it is! Blah blah blah, got the pipe, hooked up the stove, and have heat!
ps. The wood in the bucket is the wood I cut down when I first cleared the land for building the house (see first blog post!).
So, I have moved into my house...it's not done, but that's ok...it's a work in progress. It's comfy, it's cozy, it's my own.
Well, back at it...I called Dan the plumber to hook up the propane for my stove! It works!!!
And I ran the water line and tested out my handy work!!! So far so good! No leaks!!!
I put in the sinks over the weekend...I have yet to hook them up, but that will happen in the new year, as it's the holidays and I'm taking one! Happy McHolidays everybodys!!!
I built a lil' cabinet for my lil' bathroom, it will host my lil' sink and lil' fixture...I hope to get those on soon...Hopefully the kitchen sink arrives soon, I will put that in soon as well.
My kitchen sink should be in later this week and I will cut the hole out and drop it in...These were pretty fun to build. They are just 2 - 2x12 pieces of fir that I laminated together. They look and feel pretty rough, but everything in my place is kinda that way, so why change now??
I'm building a tiny house on The Sunshine Coast in BC, so I have somewhere to live...I also have no idea what I am doing...
