Tiny House Floor Installation (Part 2)

With the floor now securely in place on the trailer, it’s time to get it looking good! In this video we show how to plug the holes in the trailer that have been left by the screws and then how to sand and oil the floor. If you have missed the first video of our floor installation, you can check that out here.

Floor Install Before & After

We’re incredibly lucky to have master builder Alan Drayton and his team from Bio Build Ltd helping us on our build and giving us their expert advice.

The wood that has been selected for the floor is New Zealand Lawson Cypress from St Lukes Timber. It’s been chosen for its great performance and strength to weight ratio.

    May I ask if this step is optional? What is the purpose of plugging the holes instead of using filler?
    Thanks 🙂

    Re: the sanding over the wooden plugs. Did the builder knick the sandpaper all round to increase the abrasion? And therefore, would you need a second piece underneath that piece of sandpaper so as not to damage the pad on the sander?

    Hello Bryce,
    I was wondering if you could elabarate on how you will be insulating the floors. Will you flip the trailer in order to do it?

      We won’t be able to lift the trailer, as the house is constructed on top of it by the time we will get to the floor insulation. After the plumbing and floor wiring go in, we will insulate the floor, and then jack up the trailer to secure the bottom plate underneath.
