|Pocket Door Frame Installed|
The bathroom pocket door frame was installed, centered in the tiny house. It is a Johnson pocket door frame #5062 from Home Depot. Installation video is available on the company's website and was easy to install. I will build a light weight, 24" door. Since the size of my bathroom is based upon the shower pan, make sure it slides in easily before screwing your pocket door to the floor. The shower drain should be installed on the pan and the hole drilled to the right size before attaching the pan to the studs.
I would recommend for those who are designing TH's, make your walls (from subfloor to bottom of 4x4s loft floor joists) 71" high to accommodate most off-the-shelf pantry furniture. Since I'm planning to build my kitchen cabinets by hand, it won't matter. [My walls are 69.25" high]
|Casement Stay or Dormer Window|
On the left, is a picture of the casement stay that will be used to lock as well as open the dormer windows. They are available from the Antique House of Hardware, Inc for about $16 each. Casement stays are designed to be installed on the side rails of the window pane, which coincidentally is a bit larger on my hand made windows. The casement stays are brass and look fantastic.
