To the Top!

Finally finished the Hardy siding (other than final trim pieces). I've got the cedar cut with first coat of paint on and hope to get that on in between the rain drops tomorrow.

Windy Weather

It's been a bit blustery but I managed to get 2 rows up. Another week of vacation would be nice to move things along.

Inside the little house there were no noticeable drafts and that's without insulation and house wrap as a door. I'm confident it's wrapped up pretty tight. Now if only the roof could get finished up...

Vacation II is over

It's been a long week and today I'm going to try and get a few pieces up on the peak to get it started. I'm glad most of it is up I just wish it didn't take so long.

I wanted to give a shout out to a blog I've been following, she is at the pre-project stage and writes about ideas for tiny houses and her personal journey. You can find it here and maybe a pic of my house in the making... http://mytinyhousedream.blogspot.com/2013/10/comments-are-bloggers-paycheck.html

My roof piece is in so hopefully that will get done this week. I'm hoping!

Two pieces are in place. Doesn't seem like much but I did some prep for the remaining rows, and cleaned out the car a little.

Wall no. 3 to the Top

Another side finished except the top row needs trimmed out just like the other side. The cold rain wasn't very helpful but the end is in sight.


Next step I'll be putting siding above the windows on the peak. Below the windows and on the porch I'll be using cedar siding.

Close to the Top

A few more pieces are needed to finish the last row and then on to the last wall. Once all the siding is up I'll do the trim on both sides.

Hunters moon tonight, I missed the partial eclipse.

ER trip and rain

Yesterday morning  about 3 a.m. I got up and stubbed and sliced the tip of my small toe. Thank me for no pics. Thought for sure it would need stitched up so I went to the er and luckily the (flap) sealed back up pretty good and opted for no stitches.

The last two days had periods of rain but I did manage to make some progress in between (and sometimes in) the rain.

 Also had a visitor Sonny from church, thanks for stopping by. It's neat to see the reaction of people when they see it for the first time. Speaking of which I was shooting for a little "open house" Sunday but I'm just not going to be ready for that. Maybe November 9th or 10th.

To the Top

This side needs some cosmetic work and the top trimmed but it's off to finish the other side for now. Supposed to rain tomorrow but hopefully I can get something done.
