Gray House coming up
Here's what I've been doing today
This house is going to be real DIY house as I decided today that I need the house and fast. Of course all the stores are closed today and no plywood or MDF around. The only usable thing that I had was 2 mm cardboar which of course is too thin for the construction. I went to see around the carage what we have there and found some beading, so I did the base for the floor from it and added a middle support so that the floor won't warp.
Then cut the back wall and again I had the problem that it's too thin. Went looking around again and only usable thing that I found was a 30 mm polystyrene insulation board. So, I cut it up, glued to the cardboard and cut the window and door openings. Then decided that the back wall is going to be plastered so that went up.
Now I reget that I didn't come up the insultion board earlier as it would be good on the side walls also, but as it's so thick, it would take too much room space from the house. Tomorrow I have to tackle the side walls and floor, which have to be at least 10 mm thick - and don't still have anything in that thickness and there's not enough of the 2 mm cardboard. See what I come up with.
I will age and dirty the plaster and the base will be either plastered or stone.
This is so me, I start to do something without any real plan, now I only had the measurements for the layout but not the slightest clue what I'm going to use for the construction.
Here's my first, kind of sad try of tiles, but they'll do fine as the bathroom is going to be visible only from the door and window.
