Progress Here’s my progress so far… The most recent is at the top. Scroll to the bottom and view up or click on one to open the gallery in full-screen mode. Note: I’ve moved older design visuals into an archive, which I’ll make available at a later date. And I closed off the last portion of roof. Only 7 inches wide, this roof will also get felt and drip edge, then the metal roof can be installed. Ensuring the drip edge is put on in the right sequence, lapped. These tiny nails were pesky buggers. I opted for synthetic roof felt as I don’t like the smell of the asphalt paper. Go Green! Adding a second layer in lieu of tongue and groove decking. Much easier to lift up there. Filling the gaps. Best. Work boots. Ever. The first layer of sheathing nearly had me fall off the ladder. Once the rafters were in place, it was easier to tarp. Starting to look like something Making jigs for the rafter tails. Not the best long-term solution for keeping out weather Then we ate lots of veg! Gotta use the selfie stick once in a while! These folks were amazing! We raised the roof! Literally. Ipe deck boards are stained on one side, getting a little sun. Kat and Cathy were the first to arrive at the work party Things are looking up. Preparing the door threshold was very therapeutic. Some of the walls are just hanging on by a thread for later removal. That’s some heavy metal. Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof. Then gravity did the rest. Oh, don’t worry… that’s argon, an inert gas in the background. I did need to be on fire watch for the paint which flared up occasionally Yes, it was mighty hot that day – and the torch gets to 5500 degrees Fahrenheit. So pretty. Getting ready to cut! Windows cut and strapping glued and screwed. Time to cur the kitchen and bathroom windows. This didn’t stay organized long. Bathroom wall framed. Secret to pocket doors, don’t do them. A mirrored closet door will get dressed up to look like a secret passage. First layer of waterproofing done. This can stay exposed no more than 180 days. Because, power tools make lots of dust. First art for the tiny house, “Electro Face” – by Derek Deek Diedrickson Roof trench drain is not your standard gutter, but was easy to waterproof. Tapered insulation, acheived. Summer arrived early and with it, naps. Best blue helping me to install the exterior strapping New project, New tool! The maple plywood will eventually become storage seating. Water resistant coating applied to the underside. That’s mighty thick floor Had to take a core sample. It’s so roomy in here! The Eagle has landed! Getting ready to drop.
