Progress on Tiny Refuge is just chugging along. Tiny Refuge now has flooring! Yesterday morning, we installed the cork flooring in the lofts and started on the porcelain tiles in the kitchen and great room and today we finished tiling the kitchen and great room.
Tomorrow, the grout goes on and then a field trip to a counter supplier!
The cork floor being installed.
The red under the tile is the underlayment, which I did not know I needed until very recently. The underlayment helps the floor “feel” softer, helps keep moisture out of the floor and reduce noise.
The last board going in!
The left with the cork flooring in!
This is the porcelain tile that will go throughout most of the main floor of the tiny house.
The kitchen tiled. I chose a 2″ square tile for the floor mostly because of weight. The bigger tiles are almost twice as thick and tile is pretty heavy to begin with.
The great room tiled.
This is the bathroom, with a skim coat of thinset on it. The bathroom tile isn’t as thick as the rest of the time, the skim coat builds up the height of the floor. This will be a small white hexagonal tile.
