Building A Tiny House In Winter

It’s been a month since my last post, and what a busy month it was, which is why it’s taken me longer than usual to update the blog. September is our anniversary month, and this one was a biggie – 20 years! – we of course had to do something special. We took a trip to one of our most favorite places….Disneyland of course!….yes, we are those kind of people lol. Then it was just lots of to-do’s around here, getting the RV winter weather ready and so on. Nothing fun.

Speaking of winter, we have been in a race against the wet weather to get the outside of the tiny house finished. After weeks of what seemed like buckets of rain, today was finally dry, so Aaron and I were up at 6:45 AM and out trimming windows by 8:00 AM. This is what we were able to accomplish today….

All five windows and the utility cubby trimmed, with rain caps….

We were able to install the rain screen on one entire side….

Our neighbor stopped by, as usual, to say hello and get a belly rub….

We really wanted to get more siding up today, but those cuts around the wheel wells proved a bit tricky and took up a lot of time. The sun was setting, it was getting a bit chilly, and we were both tired and hungry for dinner, so this is about all we were able to install before calling it a day….

After a long day of climbing up and down ladders, running the chop saw (yes, I actually worked up the courage to cut wood with it) I was so happy to finally take a shower, put on my pj’s, and cook some yummy fish tacos and a big salad, and now, I’m off to bed….gotta get ready for another long Tiny House work day. Stop by again for more photos! 🙂
