Build Day 18-19 (5/23/12-5/24/12)

Another rainy day on the 23rd!  Progress has been slow lately because of the weather.  We put roofing paper on just one section of the A frame part of the roof and picked up some kitchen cabinets from the YMCA thrift store.  They’re in great shape and I was able to buy them individually (most places sell them as an entire set, which is about 3 times as many cabinets as this tiny house needs!)  I also found a quirky cabinet that will be good for the bathroom.

The 24th was way more productive.  We finished up the paper and picked up the windows.  I took a risk going with prairie style grills but I’m happy with the character it gives.  Unfortunately, they’re new windows but they’re all energy efficient and the loft window was made in Rocky Mount, VA.  I think the others came from Ohio?  I’ll check on that again, but hey, Ohio is closer than getting windows from the other side of the country!  I spent a lot of time looking for used windows but I wanted quality and efficiency…and I don’t have 6 months to look for the perfect used windows.  Tomorrow we get to put up the house wrap which will really make it look different!  So excited 🙂
