Today, in the comments on this post, Shelby asks, “What kind of interior siding looks like conventional sheet rock — thought that was a no no for tiny house on wheels due to the stress off moving??”
Great question! A lot of people ask about how some builders install drywall on the interior of tiny houses that are built on trailers because they worry that when towing it will cause the interior drywall sheets to crack.
And that’s definitely a smart thing to worry about. When I saw Shelby’s question, I remember reading about a trick to prevent your drywall from cracking… even in a tiny house on wheels.
I learned about this ‘trick’ thanks to Carrie and Shane from Clothesline Tiny Homes. They used this method and it worked. Plus they traveled quite a bit with their tiny home with no issues.
Tiny House Drywall ‘Trick’ Prevents Cracking
Learn how it works below:
So the ‘trick’ is using a product by Trim-Tex called Magic Corner. And here’s what it’s meant to do, “The Magic Corner’s exclusive expansion control eliminates edge cracking on all off-angle walls and vaulted ceilings. For use on any inside corner where movement is an issue to prevent cracking.”
Thanks Carrie and Shane for sharing this simple but extremely valuable tip! We really appreciate it!
