Tiny House BuildI build my own 200 sq. ft. tiny house!
The Project and Goal
In 2014, I decided that I was going to build my own 200 sq. ft. tiny house with my husband.
Here I have laid out a photograph based breakdown of the tiny house build and how things have gone after moving into the house. This was my home for 5.5 years and it was a wonderful experience to have and I’ve learned so much for all of those years living in it!
July – August 2013
When contemplating if I wanted to build and live in a tiny house, I took steps to see what I would be getting myself into – literally. I drew up an accurate (mostly) caulk outline of the house layout. This helped me see a clearer view of the living space available. After this, a drawing iPad app was used to make an ideal design and layout sketch based on what my boyfriend, Eddie, and I wanted in our home.
April – June 2014
We already had the windows in and it had only been two and a half months since we started building! Still, much work was left to do so I quickly moved on to painting the trim. Next, after taking a break in the attic, Eddie and I got right to staining all the siding before installing it.
July – September 2014
Seeing the flooring installed and the lights turned on made this project really come to life for me. It looked more and more like a home each day. Once the insulation and interior walls were installed, it was all over. I was completely in love with my home I had built.
On another note, spiders, scorpions, and snakes, oh my! You can see more of the creatures we had to deal with on the next page of photos. If you would rather not see them, then feel free to keep scrolling on by.
After moving in, Tiny House Giant Journey visited our area and made a video tour of our tiny house! At the time, we still had a lot of work to do, but it’s a nice tour still!
After 5 and a half years of living in the tiny house, my husband and I had decided that it was time to move onto our next adventure. That included selling out beloved Tiny Home that we lovingly still called “The Deliberateer”.
These were the photos that we took of it after it was fully completed and ready to be shown to potential buyers.
