Bry has been sick this year more than any I have known. On top of that we have had some horrendous weather and it’s been colder than normal. All that together with our doubts on insulation have made our garage project non-existent.
Luckily, we have Toadie!
All though he’s not yet a housebus, he is what we will be living in in a couple of weeks when the builders come in and repair the earthquake damage to the house.
I’m off to measure things and work out where things will go in Toadie.
The video was just cute so thought I’d share.
Lot’s of bad weather lately. I’ve been whistfully looking at completed housebusses on the net….
And this one apartment is 90 square feet.
This tiny house is 89 square foot.
This whole thing is cool, but the idea of using cushions as storage is definitely something I can put to good use!
Toadies roof need to be raised about 20cm (approx 8 inches). It’s far to short inside for even me to stand up in (I’m 5ft2”).
But February, our “warmest month” here in New Zealand, has been less than condusive. It’s been REALLY cold here for the past few days, and doesn’t look much like it’s going to change soon. It rained all day today. I think our summer may have ended early.
Vardo’s or Gypsy caravan’s (like these)
are my main inspiration for the interior. They look cosy, comfortable, and like something I could be proud of.
Here are 2 of the pictures from the internet that I use as inspiration for the aesthetics.
One thing they have in common is the ceiling and wall lining. It’s fabric. After I bought Toadie I kept watch on the online auction here in New Zealand (TradeMe) for a large amount of fabric that I could live with.
This is what I found.
There is 32 metres (almost 35 yards) in one piece and the pattern is quite small, which is a good thing. With Toadie being small and there not being too much ceiling or wall area to cover, this amount will definitely do the job!
I will be putting in wooden ribs long-ways and cross-ways like in the second interior picture I’ve posted here, too. But I really love the first interior picture!!!
