The left image is of the "case" built around the #PEX pipes that we ran inside the building envelope. I'm thinking I'll paint a little road or trail on top for the munchkin to drive his cars on. Hmm. πŸ˜‰ The right side shows the window bump out walls my father-in-law built yesterday that just needs trim and paint to be done. Brandy had to take the window sashes out to get the wine barrel back in the house for install, so you can see how wide open that space is. Nice! #tinyhousekidsroom #tinyhousefamily #tinyhousetot #tinyhousebuild #tinyhousediy #thow #tinyhouse Here's the custom storage chaise bench my dad made for the munchkin. The angled part isn't attached yet to make it easier to install in the room, and I'm still on the fence about the top not being flat. That would be an easy fix, but I see my dad's point about it acting as an extra "wall" to lessen the likelihood of you from knowing anything over behind your head. I LOVED his idea about adding some of the #tiffanyheiger Rocky Mountain Walk wallpaper in the polygonal area - it looks awesome! #thow #tinyhouseinterior #tinyhouse #tinyhousediy #tinyhousebuild #tinyhousetot #tinyhousefamily #tinyhousekidsroom I had to leave for work, but this is what was going on when I left. Time to install the #winebarreltub in the #wetbath! #tinyhousebuild #tinyhousediy #tinyhouse #tinyhouseinterior #thow Brandy got the kitchen light installed. :) #thow #tinyhouseinterior #tinyhouse #tinyhousediy #tinyhousebuild #tinyhouselighting I'm usually on the other end of the camera, but my M-I-L caught me with hers while I was working on the loft ceiling. See, I DO work on the tiny house, too - not just photo it. lol 😜 #tinyhouseinterior #thow #tinyhouse #tinyhousediy #tinyhousebuild Here's the little man testing out his chaise lounge version of a cool storage bench I found on Zulily a few months back. My dad is putting the finishing structural touches on it today, and then it'll be painted to match the room decor. I'm hacking some storage cubes into Lego tables that'll go in the larger openings, and the skinny small one in the bottom center is for books. Who knows what'll end up in the polygonal space?! Eventually I might add a padded seat and backrest like the version we mimicked, but this will work well for now. Plus, it's one more spot for the munchkin to play or relax, and it also acts as a spot for us to sit and read bedtime stories with him. πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œ #tinyhousebuild #tinyhouse #thow #tinyhouseinterior #tinyhousetot#tinyhousefamily #tinyhousekidsroom #tinyhousekids
