Tiny House Construction Update: A Year of Photos, Step-by-Step.

Whew! It’s hard to believe that our last official construction update was posted almost six months ago, back when the house was still a plywood box topped with skeletal rafters.

We’ve come a long way, baby.

Since time has gotten the best of us, if you’re interested in following the step-by-step progress on the house, we invite you to check out our Construction Process photo album on facebook. Pictures speak louder than words, and we’ve added captions so you can track our work through the months of May through January and beyond.

If—like Christopher—you’re thinking about building your own tiny house or learning as you go, here are a few of our favorite blogs and sites that offer step-by-step photo albums and more in-depth D.I.Y. tiny house How Tos:

Chris and Malissa’s Tiny Tack House

Steven Wolverton’s tiny house in Texas

Kevin’s MicroHomestead on Youtube

The How-To Section at TinyRevolution

And if you know of other favorite how-to building resources, let us know and we’ll add them to the list!
