My tiny house is now dried-in and I'm taking a break from building for a few weeks. This past weekend I made My Annual Pilgrimage to the Oregon Country Fair. This weekend I'm headed to Yestermorrow in Vermont to teach the two-week Tiny House Design-Build class.
My goal was to be dried in before these adventures began and I've managed to do it, thanks to the help of many wonderful people. I now have eighteen full days of work into my tiny house on wheels and let me assure you, I am incredibly grateful for my tiny house helpers! During these work parties we’ve done the following:
- Picked up my trailer and undercarriage materials (My Tiny House Begins!)
- Installed my undercarriage, insulated my floors, and installed my subfloor (Floorbox Lessons Learned)
- Reworked my subfloor and sill plates when I changed my mind (My Floorbox Continued)
- Raised my SIPs walls (My SIPs Wall Raising)
- Applied air barrier to my walls (My Tiny House Air Barrier)
- Raised the rafters and built and installed a skylight box (Vardo Rafter Raising)
- Installed blocking between the rafters and closed up the end walls (Making Ends Meet)
- Stapled my beadboard ceiling over the rafters (Ceiling Up My Vardo)
- Attached eave caps at the edges of my rafters to catch the insulation (Eave Caps for My Vardo Roof, Plan F, Plan F: Take 2)
- Insulated the roof box (Insulating My Vardo Roof)
- Sheathed and waterproofed the roof (Sheathing My Vardo Roof)
- Installed the beautiful windows (Tiny House Window Installation)
- Finished drying in the house with backerrod - and a pool noodle! (Tiny House Trim & Siding)
