So we have taken the smaller pieces of the beaded wood from Harwood and used it for the wainscot on the Retreat. The upper half of the wall is 5″ T&G from the Hocheim house and the beaded board for the loft walls are out of Harwood too.
Exterior still has trim, porches, and some detailing too.
The Retreat is half finished and will be to teach the interior more than the basics of framing but will also have porches, exterior trim, and other things to do that you will need to do on any tiny house of this grand size.
Here you can see the earliest stages before we do some sanding and fill in with some paint to match up a bit the paint gaps.
The inside of the Retreat is getting it skins.
You can see some of the great windows in the house too.
So much glazing around the diamond topped windows that it is almost a hundred bucks just to rebuild that part of the window.
Still some sanding and then a touch up on the paint, and oiling ahead.
Above you can see some really fine beaded wood with a great color in milkpaint so that when sanded a bit more, the Zebra veining of the wood and paint will be spectacular.
One set of stairs that may go into this house.
Front wall and windows which may get changed out for clear on the end of the house.
Then the belt sander attacks the wainscot to lighten the amount of paint showing and let some grain shine out.
This is before the paint is sanded back.
This is after the paint is sanded and baseboards set in front below.
Here you can see the first of the results of the sanding to mix is all the colors of the past.
This is a pre-sanded view of the wall by the door and bathroom side of the house.
Now you can see the effect of the treatment with the sanding and then adding the Walnut Oil.
