We did it... we finished our subfloor, and I want to thank the amazing weather for helping us out with that one :)
Decided to make a few changes to our original plan for the subfloor. Chris was bringing up the fact that the 1/2 inch Plywood for the subfloor was bending a little to much for him. The floor felt fine for me, but we both have to live in this Tiny House, so we have to agree on every last detail. We decided to brace the sides along with the middle supports, this gives us better weight distribution. We also made supports for the area under the Shower and Sink. This will be used also for our plumbing pipes that run out to the Grey Water Tank. We had the manufacture move the first beam, under the trailer, 32” back. This will let us brace in our removable Grey Water Tank when it is full.
We decided to go the more natural way when it comes to our insulation. That’s why we chose Wool! We live in Seattle WA, so the winters are that cold... not when you are used to Michigan winters. We are building this house with the option of moving it around. We wanted to achieve a high R-Value for the insulation, that’s one reason we decided to go with the 2x6 subfloor instead of 2x4. With our subfloor we should get about R-21.
