Friends recommended Frank Medina, a General Contractor from Cottonwood, Ca. He’s worked on large corporate jobs to mobile homes, decks and patios.
He helped me with various projects. The kind of DIY more advanced level projects requiring more tools... and more training skills than Tiny B has, oh, and, patience too, lol. I needed this table to be installed correct so, we didn't have to live with it crooked and not functioning right.
Installing custom wood sliding table
Frank aced it. The table fit perfectly and functions smoothly. Project took us under an hour and less than a couple hundred bucks. We had fun working on the tiny house. Most of the cost was in the purchase of the reclaimed walnut wood.

Using these two bar stools that I had for now, but a future project is to either replace them for a smaller version or better yet, cut them in half to make four smaller stools. In the interim, they tuck away under the staircase just fine.
Sliding table set for a meal
Add placemats and linens and we're set for entertaining. Very pleased with this multi-tasking table. It's so important that everything be as multi-functional as possible in a tiny house. Table is used for kitchen prep space, crafting, an office, for photo shoots or staging area.
So fun to be able to take this shot from the staircase looking down on the first floor.

Do you see a table? What table? Yup, that's the point. When table is not in use, it slides easily back under the staircase.

Truly, each and every project, done with creative craftiness whether, recycled or up-cycled adds character and functionality to the tiny house which, makes living in a tiny house all the more relaxing and fun.
Thank you Frank for the awesome sliding table! And, Strategic Insurance Agency for the cutest "Home Sweet Tinyhome" postcard.
Love, Tiny B
