Little easier to see the difference now that it's dark outside. Refreshed all the paint in the window seat, and I touched up all the scuffs elsewhere in the room before cleaning it all up. Figured I might as well. #tinyhousekidsroom #tinyhouse Three of 4 sides of trim added around R.A.D's window seat in the custom bump out we added to give him more play room. There are gaps between the trim and the actual window box wood that will have to be filled with some 1"sq pieces, and eventually I'll take the roller blind down and add the upper portion as well.

Apologies for the poor lighting. It's getting dark out, and the LED color change bulbs in this room aren't very bright anyway. C'est la vie.

#tinyhouse #tinyhousewindows #tinyhousekidsroom Painted grey and attached the faux beadboard panel for the #tinyhousekitchen cabinetry. Big parts left include a similar panel to cover the fresh water tank, adding flooring under the kitchen sink, and a cabinet door to hide the under-sink area. Smaller projects include extra trim work on the front facing part of the non-moveable counter section and a few more securing devices for the moveable island portion to keep it and its contents from sliding/falling during transport of the #tinyhouse. The progress continues, though these are still just temporary fixes. Seems silly, I know, but I'm not the power tool expert Brand is. Many of our projects require spinning blades of death, so I'm sticking with eyesore removal and smaller detail projects until he has time to crank up the table saw. Besides - the quiet alone time in the #tinyhouse is cathartic for me, even if the progress I make is only superficial. I'll take it just the same. πŸ’œπŸ‘πŸ’™ #tinyhousebuild #tinyhouseremodel #diytinyhouse There I was minding my own business eating my breakfast and reading this month's #MotherEarthNews while on my #tinyhouse hiatus, and... BAM... tiny houses invaded the pages. 😜 I really, truly can't escape them no matter where I go or what I do, I swear. Doesn't help that my own is staring at me through the rain and vegetation right now out the kitchen window. lol Enjoy your day; I return to my cave for a few more. πŸ’œπŸ‘πŸ’™ #youcanrunbutyoucanthide Just an FYI. πŸ’œπŸ‘πŸ’™
