Here is the house process, I wish I had the time/energy/stamina to type out all the things I want to but posting something is better than waiting for the winds to shift and not posting anything at all!  I hope you all had a wonderful mothers day and are having a fantastic week!

I am an artist, a steward, a minimalist at heart... I love being out in the sunshine... I love animals of nearly every kind, at least the furry ones, I am trying to be a gardener... I believe people are good at the core but are also capable of very bad things when they aren't intentional about their actions... I love my family, my passions and my life... I am just me :)


  1. What did you do for the shower floor? Traditional poured pan with drain in the middle and tile? I’m contemplating this but wonder about cracking after being moved a few times. Thanks! Greg

    1. That’s exactly what I did except I used little black craft stones instead of tile, it saved me about 60 bucks but took a little longer to lay them out. I am less concerned about the floor having issues, I am slightly concerned about popping tiles out on the shower walls… time will tell though. 🙂

  2. Your shower looks so spacious!! What are the actual dimensions of the shower stall/bathroom as a whole? It seems most tiny home bathrooms are narrow and long but you seem to have found some width…

    1. Hi Michelle! My shower is 34″x42″ and the whole bathroom is 34″x7′-0″, it’s still long and narrow but it does work alright! It’s all in how you use the space! 🙂

    1. I had no issues at all with the tile while moving. they do sell a flexible grout, I would suggest using that if you are concerned, it has a little more give to it, I did not use it though and have had zero issues at all.

  3. Hi Macy, I love your tile shower. I am thinking of doing tile in my tiny house shower as well, but I am a bit worried about weight. What did you use for the tile backer board? Just the standard cement board, or something more flexible? I was hoping to find a flexible and lighter-weight backer board, but haven’t found much information so far. Thank you for your input!!

    1. I used standard tile construction and 1/4″ concrete backer board. I am afraid I am not as much help, I don’t know of a lighter weight more flexible material but I would almost lean toward advising against that, if your backer board flexes you may be more likely to pop a tile? Just my first thought. They do have flexible grout which may help mitigate that, not positive…
