Tryin’ to get a roof over our heads


After all of the help we received to raise the walls of the Tiny House, we took 3 weeks off to regroup, traveled to Las Vegas for a friend’s wedding & road tripped back through Death Valley & Yosemite. It was great to get away, to see old friends, to drives for hours at a time and to spend time with each other without being in work mode. It seems we’ve been going non-stop for months now and I really appreciated having space to watch the world go by without needing to feel I should be working on something from my to-do list. It took another week or so to adjust back to Bay Area climate, responsibilities & tasks and shift back into production mode on the house.

So, after a couple good productive weeks, THE ROOF IS ON! Aaron’s spent the last week constructing the skeleton of the roof; first he built the peaked roof, then the flat ceiling for over the loft. One of the things I’m most excited about in this house is the bump-outs that Aaron created in order to give us more head space in our sleeping quarters. I think he would have been quite fine with the original loft design as seen on the Tumbleweed Fencl or even the Epu, (please note the rectangle in the ceiling that one must crawl through to get up into bed – yikes!), but having the bump-outs really opened up the space ~ they were a must for me!

And a big Congratulations to Alissa & Matt ~ It was an honor to be a part of your special day!
