Here are a few shots of friends who have been helping frame up a new building. Thanks to Brian, Lucy & Gayle for helping and learning at the same time. It’s a great arrangement where everyone benefits. We share skills & social engagement, while the job quietly gets done!
We kicked off the series of ‘Tiny House Thursdays’ last week. The slab has well & truly settled down and is ready for something to be built on it! We’re starting with the Olive House, so named because it has a lovely olive tree established next to it.
Christoph & I had cleared out a workspace at the front of the workshop. Jim joined us for the day and we made some good progress.
After working out our plans, we started framing up the West wall, on the floor.
We needed to stack up some more timber (all salvaged from pallets)

and there’s the glorious stack, with a tarp to keep it dry & shaded.
Here’s Jim positioning a noggin before hitting it with the nail gun.
At the end of day one, we had a West wall finished – which we can now use as a template for the matching East wall. Sweet!
(If you’re free on Thursdays, we’re working on the tiny house every Thursday in September & October… let us know you’re coming, though, please!)
