Despite some folks pessimism about our abilities to finish this project on time, the project indeed made major progress today. The house is wrapped and windows in. Even the door jamb was installed (more or less). That means today will put on siding. Weee. So excited about that.
I wouldn’t have made it through the day without the major optimism and assistance of Pacifico’s brother Zadig. And the sound and expert advice of our next door neighbor Ramon (Who by the way is from Guadalajara and has an art degree from UofA- just like me. So I call him compadre!) and of course our carpenter.
So here it is, all wrapped up in time for my birthday: My new tiny house!!
Of course I had to wrap it myself, but hey at 49 we stop caring about those details and are just happy to get something we really want.
Here’s the little cast iron vent going in above the door.
And here it is, our first window in:
Inside view, kitchen window:
7 pm and still going!
The bay window attempt:
More or less installed. A little less than more actually. Need an expert opinion here.
Home in time for dinner of celery sticks with peanut butter and to do a couple hours of work on the computer.
But oh what a sense of accomplishment. I keep telling myself, everytime I get overwhelmed and think something is going to be impossible – “It aint rocket science. I’m sure I can figure it out.” But oh how much character I’m building trying to figure all this stuff out.
