Electric Panel Video

Here's a little preview of the electric panel I'm putting in.

I wanted to give you guys an update. We've been trying to focus on getting the electric in so we can start paneling the inside and putting the flooring in. I'm excited and nervous about building my own cabinets but I think I can do it. We're building our couch into the nook and putting the dog bed under it. We've picked out our ceiling finish and our bathroom wall solutions so keep checking for those posts. Next up we'll be talking about my hot water heater the RV-550 from Precision Temp. Great videos coming up and maybe even a post or two about how to live in a half built house without people thinking your a hobo!

We have more videos planned on the electric system so if you have any questions about the electric panel or anything else feel free to leave a comment.


  1. Hi- I've enjoyed reading your blog and found your how-to videos to be incredibly helpful and informative. SIPs seem like such an excellent method for building DIY tiny houses. I'm currently in the process of planning my own tiny house and was wondering if supplying SIP Kits via the webpage your blogger account links to ( is still an active endeavor of yours? If so, I'd be very interested in getting in touch with you about a SIP tiny house.

    1. Absolutely Molly,
      I've partnered with the guys who built my house and while you found my test site a bit quicker than I was expecting we can talk about getting you a house just as well made as mine. My email is and you can send me your contact info there and we can chat more.

  2. Thanks for the fun blog. Questions about your siding: Did you oil after burning? How has it held up? Has it faded much? Thanks!

  3. I did oil it after burning it. It has faded a little bit but it's not in a bad way. I think when I re-oil it this summer it'll darken up. I might get the oil tinted a little bit but I'm very happy with it and it's looking great.

  4. Great post about Long Story Short House, I thinks very effective solution thanks a lot for shearing.

  5. Are you still living in your tiny house in OKC?

  6. Yep! I have just put in the final flooring and working on the kitchen cabinets. It's not a race. I'm living in it as I work.

  7. Nice article. Would be lovely if you posted more frequently. Personally, I recently joined the Tiny House Movement and am enjoying every bit of it.
