Tiny House #3

Spring is here and that means more Workaway helpers… so more work on projects.  It’s been a busy week!  We made the roof timbers and erected them…

Eave linings are a pain to put in place after you’ve put on the roof or walls, so before adding any other cladding, we cut, painted and erected the eave linings.

The eave linings we done and it was 4.30 pm on Tuesday.  Rain forecast for Wednesday so I asked the guys if they’d mind pushing on with  the roof.  Everyone was up for it so we worked another 2 hours and put the roof on!

Wednesday morning dawns…. and no rain!  Sweet!  OK, let’s put the window in before it rains…

Still no rain, so let’s just carry on!  My brother had donated some off-cut iron from a building project and we reckoned it was about enough to clad the South wall.

On goes the cladding!
Thanks to Andy for kindly donating the cladding!

Now it’s Thursday morning, so we’ve got another big day today with extra helpers coming for the Tiny House skillshare.  Because I’ve got 3-4 helpers for the next few weeks, we’ll probably have 2 people working on the Olive House each day… so expect big progress.  Christoph leaves in early November and wants to be the first person to sleep in the Olive House.  Will we make it?  Dunno, but I better get out and get too it!
