Tiny House Update: Gutters and Stairs
It’s the beginning of December and we have more to report… YIPPEE.
The gutters and stairs are almost completed so we have preliminary pics to show you (along with some other random rough framing pics).
1/2 round galvanized gutters. Rain chains will be used in the front off the porch and regular galvanized downspouts everywhere else.
View of gutters from upstairs/inside – you can see the window screen…
Our stacked washer and dryer will go under the 2nd half of stairs and be tucked away behind a sliding reclaimed wood door.
The first set of stairs (below) will have three pull out drawers built in. You can see the open three stairs in the pic where the drawers will go.
The stair landing (below) will house our roll out dining room table as well as storage bins to maximize all the empty space.
Stairs leading to the second floor loft, closet and mechanical room.
The loft closet (below) will have a door at the back to gain entrance to the mechanical room.
Inside the mechanical room (below) you can see the rough plumbing for the 2 on demand Takagi hot water heaters. One will be dedicated to the radiant floor heating and one to hot water.
View from 2nd floor loft (below).
Reclaimed 5/8 inch thick shiplap fir flooring from our sponsor, Heritage Salvage. It will be used for the first floor (all but bathroom), the stairs and the loft area.
The fir flooring came from grain elevators in Washington. One side has the original patina one side is freshly milled. We will use about 70% patina side and 30% freshly milled to mix up the look and feel of the finished look.
