Moving Along

We’re getting speedier 🙂 We put 3 pieces on today! They’re not screwed down yet though.

3rd piece.

It’s not perfect, but it’s working 🙂 Every piece we put down opens up more of the future house; it’s exciting! I am worried about screwing the sheets down though. The crossmembers are so skinny, and I’ve never drilled into metal before, eek!

I don’t know how people build so fast and work full-time. I’m only working part-time right now.

When you look at pictures of other builds, it seems to go so quickly. The first picture would be of an empty trailer, then the second of insulation, then the third of a finished sub-floor. But it’s a slow process when you’re new to building. Measuring is time-consuming. And Dylan and I are easily distracted by ice cream on hot days 😛

The piece of wood we cut out for the porch makes a good table top for the colourful tools:

It’s supposed to rain a lot tomorrow, so I’ll be indoors working on framing plans and such things. And I still need to decide whether I’m using screws or ring shank nails for framing and/or sheathing…

    If it makes you feel better, our friends who are working on their tiny house full-time and are in construction are still taking several months to build it. 😉
