Update Time

It's been awhile but my computer crashed so updating the blog is not too convenient. It's been crazy lately but I've been able to get some things done on the house  here and there. I'm in the middle of getting the lights up and surrounding trim. There's quite a few pics to share, feel free to ask if you have questions about them... Although I'm not sure when I'll be online again.

Winter's Grip!

Truth be told, weather takes no blame for the lack of activity on little house. I'll be back to work soon but there's important business to take care of first. Hope to have some new inside pics for you next week. Take Care and stay warm!

The last two days have been chilly with misty rain messing with my cold that is lingering. Plus there are other important things going on that require more focus than the little house. I really hope that I can share that with you soon. I was able to get the window trim finished except for a few minor details. The flooring couldn't wait any longer so I got a start on that.  As with many aspects of building this tiny house there is a story with almost every phase. The flooring is no different and probably the most heartwarming and touching. Look for that to be told soon when I'm a little healthier and I can properly express my gratitude on this forum.

Let's go to the pics...

Window Trim

It's back to work on the house as I fight a miserable cold and deal with other important life events. Today I was able to start the window trim and hope to finish tomorrow if all goes well. Here are pics of the first two windows.

I had to work around the light switch.

Yes, a New Post

It's been just over a month since my last update but a few things on the list were getting checked off. Oh, and if I didn't mention it before I've been net free at home and it's actually been a nice break. Both sides of the knotty cedar were stained and have started going up. A new threshold was placed and looks much better than my first effort. The electric needs a few tweeks and the outside boxes will be changed. Here's a few pics...

A Mini Move and Siding

Had to move the house to make room for tree cutting equipment. It was only about 30' but the heart rate went up. Can only imagine getting this on the road.

I went with Ever True 1/4" knotty cedar siding from Lowe's. I wanted the Dura-Groove that comes pre-finished to save time but it was too much to justify. So, I've been sanding and finishing planks. They are sitting where the house was sitting for almost two years.

This is the big house that is soon to be listed. Also working on a good handful of projects to get it ready, it's ready for the roofers to come and do their thing. You can see Tiny in the background sitting in its' temporary place.

Lighting Update

The lights are now wired to the switch inside so the extension cord is gone. Also, these pics show a more realistic light output with no camera flash...

Let There Be Light!

Not quite finished but I got my outside lights up. Need to get the wire inside tomorrow, for now it's on an extension cord. I'm not sure if the pics do it justice but they look great in person. In the future I'd like to add more led rope lighting underneath.

The dark areas when I turned off the flash are actually lighter in person.

Madylin actually came in the house for the first time...
