Some Plywood Up

Katie and I made an impromptu trip to the farm yesterday. She got to spend five hours playing with her Grammy and Pop and I some plywood on the outside of the tiny house. Once this layer is down I’ll wrap the walls in housewrap and then screw on a layer of pallet boards on for the final exterior finish.

I’m still hunting for roofing material and currently thinking I may just focus on searching for some scrap corrugated roofing. After experiencing extreme winds and rain this past winter it just seems like the smartest solution for roofing is to use some kind of real metal roofing.

Below: Here’s what it looked like when I left. We’re expecting another storm this week so I resecured the tarp before I left.

Above: A mid-day shot with the tractor working the field in the background. This year the farmer that works the 40-acres has planted four separate crops for organic seeds, bok choy, swiss chart, carrots, and radishes. The carrots are right behind the tiny house.

  1. I am getting ready to build my own tiny house to be used as a storage facility. I came across your story in DWELL many months ago and kept your page out of it, hoping to re-create a smaller version for tools, etc. Thank you for sharing your tiny house project. It is quite inspirational. I can’t wait to see the finished version, as I’m sure you are too!

  2. I found your blog kinda by chance, and love the idea of a pallet house. I’m from Sacramento, too. Looking forward to seeing it finished!
