3 weeks in the house

What has happened?

In the last 3 weeks, we have been adjusting our life here in the tiny house. We don’t have heating system, water, kitchen, shower room, toilet in the house yet but we have a least an extension cable from outside through the door corner. Luckily we got an Infrared Heating from someone, we can at least heat the house before we get the heating system installed.

The biggest problem we have is the humidity inside the house, as the house is so properly sealed, in a small a space with 2 people breathing, the humid air has no way out from the house. And another reason the house is so humid is that the house was new and never get heated up, after the house got heat up for the first time, we could see that all of our stuffs in the house were full moisture as well as all windows and door.

We borrowed a measuring tool from our neighbor to check the humidity level, it shows always 70%-80%, one morning it showed 90%. The normal level should be between 40%-60%. We open our windows 2-3 times everyday for the air exchange. The worst thing happened that we did not realize earlier is our futon mattresses on the loft already have some mold after 2 weeks sleeping on it. We were sweating every night like crazy because the air was so humid, we only found out the reason after we found the mold 😀

We borrowed a dehumidifier from someone here and got slatted bed base for our mattresses, I think it improves a bit. At least there is no more moisture on our windows and doors in the morning. We will need to install heat exchanger for the house.

It looks pretty cozy at the moment.
I have installed some of the plugs 🙂

Finally!

After 4 weeks since we moved out from our flat, we were kind of “homeless” staying here and there in Berlin. Finally we received our house on last Tuesday, we were super excited and happy. The driver drove the house for 9 hours from Regensburg to us, he spend a night beside the field in the truck. The unloading of the house looked simple but actually we have spent 2 hours to unload the house. Thanks Tino and Thomas who helped us a lot for the unloading.
