My journey to build a tiny house on wheelsNavigation
After many days of hard work in the (luckily) sunny November weather we’ve been having, the Shiplap portion of the siding is almost done! The areas where you still see yellow will get cedar shingles in some form, but I think we are going to wait on those for the time being.
In other news, the front door is now in, which means I can trim the front of the house and put up siding. It’s not a lot of square footage, but it’s going to require a lot of precision cuts and I really need to do a good job here… because you’ll see it every time you walk in!
The outside of the tiny house is getting dangerously close to completion! Jason and I worked until dark yesterday installing rough cut cedar 1×4 as trim.
Okay people, I admit it. I’ve forgotten about the tiny house blog for now. If you’ll allow me to make an excuse: I’ve been too busy actually building the tiny house to produce any decent content.
Here are some excellent photos from when we put up the ridge beam. All photos courtesy of Kim!
Kim’s son, Cody came to help
We bought at 26′ LVL beam and cut it down to size
Here’s the notch where it sits on the top of the wall framing

Here are some photos of the first wall done. We are working on the other side today, but ran into some hangups as we had to modify some of the framing to account for the refrigerator vent requirements, which are wider than 16″ OC.
So far, I’m enjoying the Zip panels. We haven’t taped them yet, but they are light weight and are all very square and flat.
I’ve been neglecting you. So sorry about that! I’ve just found that it’s easier to post photos and updates to The Tiny House Facebook Page. I promise I’m trying to update you more!
