Macy M2 comments5631 views


The weather is getting nicer, that means I’ll get o build shortly!  In preparation I’m getting my material list together for the tiny house renovation.  It’s nothing fancy, just some quick drawings to figure out what I need to see more of the design you can look here.  Here is what I have:

  • (17) – 10′ 2x4s – New
  • (3) – 8′ 2x4s – New
  • (1) – 10′ 2x6s – New
  • Nails/Screws – New
  • Tyvek (scrap) – Salvaged
  • TPO Roof OR sealant tape (I will have to patch the window opening in the patio, not sure I want a patched hole or to redo the entire section of roof)
  • (7) 2′ x 10′ corrugated metal sheets – Salvaged
  • Flashing – (I think I have enough left over)
  • 30″ door – Salvaged
  • (8) 3/8″ or 1/4″ drywall/mud/tape – New
  • (2) 1×2 poplar trim – New
  • (3) 1×4 poplar trim – New
  • (6) tubed of caulk – New
  • (4)1-1/2″ insulation, 4’x8′ – Salvage/new
  • (8)2″ insulation, 4’x8′ – Salvage/new
  • 90 degree angle for water heater vent (this will need to be relocated) – New
  • (4) Plywood sheathing – I have
  • (1) bedroom Light fixture – Salvage/New
  • (2) Switches and electrical boxes – New
  • (3) Outlets and boxes – New
  • Electrical wire – New
  • Wood flooring throughout – Salvaged
Bunk beds for the kiddos room!

This I don’t have a material list for, I’ll get that together once I get done with the walls and such.  This bunk bed setup will have storage up above and below, along with a couple roll out storage bins/stools to read bedtime stories.   I will be reusing the co-sleeper I made and converting it into a bunk and using the rail as the toddler rail.  In reality the new baby will be co-sleeping with us for a while (and I’m sure Hazel will find herself back in our area at times too… its what kids do).  So in reality the bottom bunk may be the only one used for a while but I want to have both spaces available.




  1. Macy,
    Congrats on your new addition ( all puns intended). I so appreciate hearing about your renovations and all the details you are sharing~both personal and practical.
    I dont live in a tiny house, I live in a yurt~ so small living~ and I am curious about your bathroom renovation. At one point I got plans to create a tub like the one you posted so I am curious where you found that one.
    Thank you for all you are doing and sharing about your experiences~ so helpful


  2. Congratulations on your news of an addition to your family! A baby is a blessing dear Macy. Forget those awful comments-you deserve better. You already have given us so much with your mini motives! Of all the Tiny houses I have seen, yours is still my favorite! I wish you all the best Macy on your news of baby and new addition!
    Yours Truly, Mary Ann Gonsalves
