Tiny House Progress Report: Walls and Roof Complete
I have been working away on the Tiny House and filming for the past month or so. Progress has been slow and steady and the familiar outline of a house has finally taken shape. I have been working mostly alone, but have had some dedicated support from a few good friends.
Before I set out on this crazy project, I always pictured building the house alone, some sort of primal act of manly independence. I didn’t foresee just how this project would interest others. It has, and it has also brought me closer to several friends. Perhaps in the past, when houses were primarily built by those who would live in them along with friends or neighbors, houses meant something more to those who inhabited them because it was a home built by a community. Likewise, I think this house will always have a special meaning to me because so much of my energy has been poured into it, along with a great deal of love from friends and family.
Below are several pictures I took on my iPhone from the past week or so. It shows the methodical process of the roof going up (which is still happening!).
