Once more we lay out the windows and see what feels right, frames up easy, and then try to figure out where to put it, nearly exactly at least.
Here are the sketches for the possible layout, sure to change yet but close.
If the weather allows, we will be having Wednesday and Thursday evening Salvage Building Seminars to frame the Gypsy Wagon walls this week. Then Saturday from 12-6 or so, Sunday 1-6 or so, which will be days of big progress as we are supposed to have lots of people, perhaps more than six besides 3-4 of us on staff. Hope you can make it and even consider renting one of the Tiny Texas Houses for the weekend or weeknight. Till then….. enjoy the sketches and see what they produce later.
Some changes to the last sketch. I decided to use the door the way it swings which meant reversing the front layout.
Gypsy First floor with intended windows and measures of the holes.
One need not have professional drawings to build a tiny house. It does help, but if you are building with salvage and have to wait until you find the parts, then why not just sketch it out and build it? Frankly the general plans or layout is very helpful, but customizing them is not that hard and if you are working with salvage, no stock set of plans will ever work anyway. So… design organically… and this is simply a preliminary guide to how.
Upstairs loft window layout. Top view.
Possible layout for this side.
Front door view with the windows set in.
Other side view.
List of the sizes of some of the windows and the hole size to go with them.
No…. I think this will sit atop the front door on the end of the house….. over the bed in the master bedroom in the loft. Perhaps opening to the ceiling so as to see the stars, sunrise, or sunset. “Tiffany Chunks” in the heart of the 4 diamonds, I love this piece.
Possibly a front window next to the door, or a window for the gable end. Still deciding.
One of the two main living area windows.
The second main living area window, also a casement.
Possible gable end window.
Bedroom window, but perhaps on the side If use the amazing window with the Tiffany Chunks on the front of the house in the loft.
Another side window for the loft.
Another possible loft window, or a bath.
Most likely a bathroom window.
This will likely be used in the loft for one of the side windows.
Presently the choice for the front door. you can see it was a doggy door and the poor dog nearly took off an inch of door trying to get out.
Heavens Kitchen Cabinet doors open to reveal a great space under the stairs.
Oh yes, the windows that came out of Heaven, well they may have found a better home up in the end of the loft where the upstairs den will be. Opening up to a New Orleans style baby balcony for plants, fresh air, and a room with a view.
Lovely view from the other corner showing the colors.
