Tiny Houses

I wanted to show you how I’m doing with the tiny houses.  I have to admit that I haven’t been doing them everyday; more like every couple of days.

Not sure if I can make 365 of these.  But like I said, maybe 56 – one for each week.

I’m really excited about my new design board that these are pinned to.  I bought a large felt sheet for a design wall several years ago but I’ve been sewing in my dining room in the last 2 houses so I didn’t really have anyplace to put it.  Now I’ve taken over half of my basement family room and wanted to have someplace to put my works in progress.  The only problem is that we have those weird basement walls where the bottom half sticks out and I had large furniture on the inside walls and windows to work around.  But there was one 6 foot section of wall that I had my eye on.

 I got one of these insulation boards from Lowe’s:
 Extruded Polystyrene Foam Board Insulation (Common: .5-in x 8-ft x 4-ft; Actual: 0.437-in x 7.937-ft x 3.875-ft)

Item #: 15348 |  Model #: 201549

$11.98
It was a little challenging getting it into the car but the guys at Lowe’s were nice to cut it down to 6 foot for me.  Then I just pushed and wedged and somehow got that thing home.  I stapled my felt sheet around it and set it up on the half wall and now I at least have a small design wall.

It’s nice to be able to move things around and stand back and see how they look.
Now my next step is to find some cubbies or shelves where I can put my fabric out and organize by color to see what I have.
