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, http://www.tumbleweedhouses.com/products/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!
