I also sourced a second hand bar fridge, but it was sad and yellowed. To the rescue: Rustoleum appliance spray paint in bright white to give it new life. Reviews online suggest that's the only brand to trust.
The LED lights are *very* warm.
Owning a giant, old barn with nearly unlimited supply of barnboard has advantages; I used the same flat poly to seal some boards for the open kitchen shelving. I debated ordering shelf brackets from Old Quebec Hardware but the brackets were already outside my price range AND needed to be shipped. I turned to Kijiji classifieds of course, where I found sizeable, real brass Lee Valley brackets for $10 each. They were in another town, but a friend was visiting and she offered to pick them up on my behalf. The dishware, cutlery, cast iron frying pan and pots were also second hand purchases.
One of the last big expenses, and unknowns, was how to get internet at the Tiny House. I phoned the internet company asking about signal boosters and after considerable confusion, was disappointed to know they had no options except to create a second account entirely. At $90/month, that was not going to happen. Instead we have another option but I'm unsure how it will perform over time.
We shall see!
