TINY HOUSE FRAMING

January 7, 2015

I’ve been waiting for this day for nearly 5 years. The day we would begin to build & frame our first Tiny House.

After combing through our Tiny House Build materials list, we made our quantity adjustments and got everything squared away. We purchased the bulk of our framing lumber from a local mom & pop style shop, Waynesville Lumber, just a few minutes down the road. I don’t want to knock Home Depot, but in our area the lumber quality wasn’t there so we decided to spend a little more for much better lumber from Waynesville.

We cut and laid out all of the 1st walls pieces and began to assemble the shorter “back” wall.  Without having many people or a crew at our dispose, we simply used the tractor to raise the wall.

And then repeat 3 more times. Mind you while this is happening, its roughly 6°-8° degrees out in the barn here in Ohio.

After getting all of the cross bracing and supports up, I’ll admit- I was most definitely excited. Love seeing this up and things going well.
