And then there was siding

Wow! What a great colour. The siding is almost complete and it looks great.

The combination of the grey roof, white trim and blue siding gives it a real ‘Nova Scotia Sea side’ look.

While I was working on the outside there were things going on inside too. Once the electrical was all roughed-in the Guys From Eco home insulation got in there and sprayed the walls and ceiling with 2lb, closed cell, foam insulation. This gives me an R value of around 21, plenty to keep the Tiny House cozy and warm in the middle of winter.

On the first Tiny house I did all the plumbing myself, but this time I have enlisted the help of Marc from EZ Flow plumbing in order to keep things moving along. They got the drains and vents in today and will be back tomorrow to finish the rough-in for the water lines.

It is always a bit nerve wracking for me to see people like the electricians and plumbers drilling all sorts of holes in the Tiny House I have just built, so I tend to keep a very close eye on them! I have been pleased so far with the level of care and thought that they are putting into their work, that means I can relax a bit and carry on with my jobs.

There are a few extra features in this model that were not in the last one, like a washer/dryer for example. The clients were keen to have this option and with the extra 1 1/2 feet in the bathroom there is room to put a nice 24″ condensating washer/dryer. No venting is required which makes the install quite easy.

Next up was the cedar shingles on the dormer walls. Once they were completed the outside was pretty much done…now begins all the woodwork inside.

  1. I had the pleasure of meeting Matthew today and seeing the tiny house he is currently building and I was amazed at how he answered all of my questions in regarding owning a tiny house!!The tiny house is absolutely beautiful and I hope when I return to Cape Breton that I will be the next on Matthew’s list for building a tiny house! Thank you for your advice and taking the time to show my sister and I the beautiful work you do 🙂 Can’t wait to see the final pics!!

    • Thanks so much Melissa, it was a pleasure meeting you today also. I am always happy to chat and answer questions about Tiny houses, especially with people as enthusiastic and excited about them as yourself.
      I look forward to working with you in the near future.

  2. We’re going to be the proud owners of Tiny 2 and we can assure you the work that Matt’s done is top-notch and he also has a great eye for style. We were nervous having this built without being there to oversee it but he’s made us very comfortable…can’t wait to get delivery!

    • I greatly appreciate the vote of confidence Michael, I know it was no small thing to entrust me to build your Tiny dream home, especially given that I am in another country.
      It has been great to work with you on this project and I am excited for you to see it all finished and set up on your property.
