Today the door frame was installed by my two neighbors Rick and Michael and I worked on the door. There were so many coats of paint on it that I had to break out the heat gun. Needless to say there is a bit of work to be done on the door but it was free so can't complain. Tomorrow I will have it looking like new and then will start on the siding.

Another fine day of work on tina's tiny house!
Today was a great day as it was finally the day to build window boxes and install the windows. Being these are like custom windows there is lots of trial and error, but everything went quite well. It was a fun day.. I'm so happy.
Tomorrow door frame and door....

P.S Rick brought by some persian sweets the other day, a nice reward for our hard work... thanks Rick.

The last few days have been pretty productive on the tiny house.
My neighbors come over and helped put up the tar paper. I guess I could have struggled alone doing this job but it's way easier with two.

The next day was cutting and laying down the sub floor. I was exhausted by the end of the day as I have been struggling through a nasty summer cold. At this point I was in no mood for cooking so it was off to get some sushi... miso soup really hit the spot.

After returning home I was nicely re-nourished and ready to work again so I put the blue skin around the windows and door.
I managed to get it all done in the dark with the help of the back yard sensor lights.. a few staples needed to be redone the next day. Yes, I'm really determined to get the tiny house done by the winter.

I have to say a million thanks to my neighbor Rick who has been helping me and coaching me all along. If it weren't for him and his expert knowledge I don't know where I would be. Also you tube has been a great resource.
