Last week I stopped by to see Jenine’s tiny house and take a few pictures as she is making progress on her home and has started to sleep and cook in it. As you can see in the pictures she is still very much in the construction mode but is making lots of progress. Be sure and visit the original post here and stay up to date with Jenine’s project on her blog. She has some nicer pictures as I caught her in working mode when I stopped by.
Jenine’s home is not your standard structure and has its own personality. She has designed a roof above the loft that lifts up to let the outdoors in and plans to use the loft as her workspace for many of her artistic projects.
Her original plan was to have her work area be where her bed is now but has found it easier to sleep on the ground floor and has been using the shelf above her bed as a place for her computer so she can write, etc. while on the ground floor.
Jenine’s house has been almost totally built by salvaged materials that she has found through craigslist and other sources. The only new items bought have been the trailer and fasteners such as screws, nails etc.
Jenine’s original plan was to have a second door and a bathroom in the corner of the kitchen area but she has decided to build a small separate bathroom area and will enclose this door. Stay tuned for a follow up post of Jenine’s completed tiny house.
