Hi friends! I can’t believe it’s been a month since my last post. Our June was SOOO rainy that progress really slowed down. However, during the breaks in the weather we were able to get a few things done. The main highlights include picking out our exterior stain color, putting up the metal roof, and building the front porch deck. Now that it actually seems like summer is here, I hope to be able to post many more updates.
Oh! and B put the trim up along the roof line.
Our stain color! It was difficult trying to find the right color. I really wanted a light grey, but still wanted the wood grain to show through. I think we found it with this stain from Cabot (I think it’s called driftwood, or something equally beachy). I think it will look really good with the red roof.
The roof felt is up and ready for some roofing action!
And here’s a picture of our door that I keep forgetting to post. I think I’m going to paint it a cheery red.
Our friend D spent the day helping us with the roofing. It was definitely a 2 person job.
It looks so different with the roofing on. Almost house like!
Trim stained, roof on (except for the cap and edges), getting the porch prepped for it’s new deck.
Our trailer had a metal ramp on the end when we bought it. We decided instead of cutting it off to just build our front porch over it.
B bolted wood down onto the metal.
B showing me how the decking will get laid down. Looks good to me!
There it is! The deck is built! Don’t mind the blue tarp.. since our roof is still open in the center, water was getting through. So B created this tarp slide for the rain. I’ll try to post a non-tarp picture of it soon.
I have been trying for months to find a window similar to this one for above our tiny house door, and I’m excited to say I found it! We are getting a quote right now and I’m praying it won’t be too insane. I am in love with this window.
Hopefully I’ll have a lot more to post and share about on Monday. Have a good weekend!
