We have our first guests! Shannon's Aunt Chris and Uncle Carl came up through Georgia last night on their way back from Texas, headed north back to Michigan. Carl and Chris are the first to sleep in the tiny house. Their boys, Tyler and Josh got to stay in the "big house". It's still early, so we've yet to hear how it went.

I finished installing the floors, and while there is still a lot to be done, it is starting to look somewhat finished on the inside. Shannon and Olivia really made the place look nice this weekend. They painted, decorated, and cleaned. Shannon really has a good eye for tying things together. She tells me her vision, and I stick things together! There's still electrical work to do, base trim needs to be installed, and we still need to decide how to finish out the stairs and underneath. I still need to finish one of the bathroom walls, and we haven't run plumbing to the sink yet. And, of course, the exterior needs to be completed. 

As usual, pics are better than words:

We have a faux wood stove heater. It is small, but will heat the space with ease. I made a lantern lamp with the same plumbing pipe I used for the handrail and loft guardrail.

I ran the wiring through the wall and the pipe. I installed a simple bulb holder with a twist switch protruding out the bottom. It was originally intended to hold a candle.

We put a queen mattress in the loft. I was going to build a platform, but we think it's pretty comfortable just on the floor.

One of the exterior walls of the bathroom still needs to be completed, but it serves its purpose.

Shannon and Olivia helped paint this past weekend. We painted an old dresser, and matched it with the post supporting the loft and the bathroom door. The color really pops against all the wood. Also installed a TV on the wall.

My two favorite people in the world, taking a break from painting Sunday.
