Mad Dash to the Finish Line

Hello again!

With winter fast approaching/sometimes already here, we had to really step it up a notch to get our Tiny Home weatherproofed.

Here’s where we left off last time:

We made so much progress that I’ll just let the photos speak for themselves. Thanks to Josh, Jack and Mark again for all your hard work! 🙂

Ta-da! With all the housewrap and roofing underlayment in place and ready for rain!

WHEW! It was definitely worth all the long hours, sweat and slivers to be done wrestling with tarps. It’s also so nice to have a little peace of mind that our home can now stand up to some weather without getting destroyed.

Next steps, metal roofing and A DOOR!
