  1. Someone may have already pointed it out but it looks like the fenders of the trailer are protruding into the space. This area will be cold – depending on where you live. Have you looked at this item. On a positive note- well done.

  2. I have a tiny house. Sort of. It is actually an old travel trailer that I gutted and have been rebuilding from the inside out. I also have those dual axle fenders–and they are not so sturdy and nice as the ones in THIS tiny house! I solved the cold problem by cutting 1/2 inch polystyrene to fit the fenders–in two layers glued together. I then cut 3/4 inch plywood to make tight fitting covers over the blue polyboard insulation. So far. seems to have been a good fix. Naturally, if you are in a colder climate, you can make the insulation as thick as is needed. Your project is particularly inspiring to me, as I want to build an actual tiny house, but lack the money for all new supplies. I like how you have “re-purposed” much of your lumber. Plus, it improves, rather than detracts from, the overall beauty. Good work!

  3. yes, an important detail to think about. i ended up using 2″ of “blue-board” insulation wrapped with 3/4″ maple plywood, then built my benches and storage on top of that. seems to do the trick nicely. thanks for the comments/feedback!
