LGV has been finished and delivered to her new home, with a lovely water view.

The last details were ticked off the list, a big truck arranged for transport and all of a sudden she was gone. This was a GREAT build, the clients were wonderful to work with, the interior details came out well, and as always we got to work with such lovely people and we would be lost without them - like Hans at Cambium Woodworks who did alot of the cabinetry, Dalton Jodrey Plumbing, ASAP Electric, Gavin's Propane, and Dis-N-Dat Upholstery

We also a have a new LGV album on our gallery page with even more pictures if you want to check that out.

In other news - Birdhouse has gotten a facelift ( Birdhouse2.0) and a new owner and will be leaving us this Tuesday. Space is nearly done and will soon be actively for sale for anyone looking for a gorgeous small studio/yoga room/ office. More info and pictures to come. The trailer is here for the next build (Tiny Tiger Retreat) and we are looking forward getting started. First though, we are taking a few days off to relax, go sailing and maybe even take a swim.

Happy summer from all of us at FMTS!

First thanks to all the people who came to the open house weekend - over 400 of you! We loved meeting you, talking toilets, designs, lofts, food trucks, communities, kids, trailers, pets, retirement, and more toilets. Tiny house enthusiasts are amazing and the tiny house movement is gaining momentum all the time!

We are on the home stretch with LGV and it's wonderful to see the space transform as the cabinets are installed and the stairs go in. The last touches are scheduled ( the electricians, the plumbers, the last coat of paint) and then it will be delivered!

We have ordered the trailer for the next build and will keep you posted on that - it's called Tiny Tiger Retreat!

 

Sorry it's been a while - we had some miserable weather, then we had some nice weather and had to work really long days... things are settling in now, it looks like spring is really here. James has traded his woolen hat for a sun hat (a sure sign!) and we are getting a lot done on the two builds. It's the glass half full post because there are so many things nearly finished, we have a week of beautiful weather coming up so many of these will get done by May 1st.

Space is nearly all shingled, the ceiling is up inside and this is shaping up to be a very stylish mobile room, office, studio!

LGV's roof is on, thanks to James and Jeffrey Langille putting in a long day on Sunday. The siding is 90% finished and the colour scheme of shades of grey looks really great!

On the inside we have finished the plumbing and electrical rough in as well as the insulation and vapor barrier. The wood for the walls and ceiling is being delivered today and we will start installing it soon. This is such a great stage as things start to come together quickly. The pictures that follow show some things roughed in, to show the clients so they can make their interior design decisions. This is going to be a really super weekend getaway space.

-The roof rafters went upsmoothly on LGV (thanks to Hans Dee of Cambium Woodworking for his help and long reach!). We had some glorious early spring weather and that really made things a lot more pleasant.

Space is being shingled and looks fantastic. Next step is the interior painting and getting the living roof sorted out. We are really excited about this part - there will be a deck area and a living roof area which will really make this special.

Freida finds the scaffolding the perfect place to keep an eye on the comings and goings of the driveway.
