Ein Tag mit Living Big In A Tiny House + Fertige Loft-Treppe // Leben im Tiny House
I moved into this tiny house about 2 weeks ago, and the question is: What’s it like? This video will tell you. Living Tiny Big visit and small stairs Good morning, it’s 7:30 and I need to get up because I will have very special visitors today. Living Big In A Tiny House will come over and shoot a tour of my house and I’ll show you what we do. In case you don’t know Living Big In A Tiny House, check them out, they film tiny houses all over the world, plus, as some of you might know, they are the reason I built a tiny house. They do interior shots so I’m banned, but we’ll take pictures of me in my home later so I’ll grab a bite. Bryce just went for a walk. ‘Hello!’ ‘How was the walk?’ ‘Very nice! It’s a beautiful day and the sun is out so all is well.’ ‘Very good.’ We’re done shooting and taking pictures and what not, We’re taking a break, they’ll get rid of their stuff and then we head to town, take a walk and hang out tonight. … and most people struggle with that. They also sell glasses for rich people. (German: Reiche) ‘Glasses for … dead people?’ (German: Leichen) ‘Rich people!’ ‘For real?’ ‘No!’ While Bryce and Rasa head home I was at Home Depot to get new gas bottles and then … … something happened. I saw a deal I was waiting for: A Makita drill and a Makita vacuum cleaner. I waited for this because a) I needed a drill and b) because I need a compact vacuum which is easy to disassemble so I can store it and preferably cordless so I can use it in the loft. I knew that Makita had one which also comes with this washable filter that you don’t need to change or buy anew. So I was hoping that one day they’d sell it together. Today was this day. I was not sponsored, I just saw this and wanted to share. While the batteries are charging, I will make lunch and clean up a little. When you move in here, you start to tidy up right away, because else there’s stuff everywhere. So I’ll continue with that. Yes. Works. That means it could run for a lot longer. We also need to talk about this staircase. Finally finished! I’ll show you how I did it. I first cut out two sides and two steps from a coreboard, and the sides were angled so they can rest on the countertop and you can lean on them when going down, which you’ll see later. I sanded it down, with P80 and P180 so it’s all smooth, then worked on the edges with a router. We assembled it with elbows, you could make it more sturdy but that’s enough for me. Two layers of paint, I used the white paint I used for everything else in my home so it all matches. My dad made this piece which holds the lader in place. I’ll explain it to you now. That’s it. As you can see, only two steps because you need the distance to the loft entry. It’s foldable, I just need a piece to hold it in place. It will pop out here. It was Bryce’s idea. I initially had a different idea. Just so you can put it away if you the whole countertop. I attached soft material, leftover pieces I found somehwere, felt is also an option. Just so the countertop is safe. And up here is a suspension which you just saw. It helps folding the stairs away. You can build this more sturdy for sure, this however is enough for me with 22 mm of coreboard. I’ll show you why you need the distance to the loft entry here. When I go up here, I can put my knee up here and can still stand upright, that’s important because else you need to hunch over, which is less safe. Especially if you carry something. Also, when going down, I can sit here, rest my feet on here and don’t have to shove myself over here like that to get onto the stairs. That would be quite unsafe. This way I can rest my hands here, get up and go down like that. It’s a diy ladder after all and one with no handrail so you need to make it as safe as possible, for guests as well. I know how it works but I want everyone else to feel safe too. With messy hair I will end this vlog. Hope you liked it and I’ll see you next Saturday at 6 pm. My tour on Living Big In A Tiny House will come out in February or March, I’m looking forward to it a lot and I’ll let you know. Thank you for tuning in and do leave a comment, see you next time! Ciao.
