Winter is coming

Summer is most definitely on the other side of the world by now, but the days are still bright, if only with a strong golden tint. It gets cold enough at night that a good jacket is required to ward off the chill.

Winter is coming.

…slowly.

Right now winter is less of a threat than plain rain because my house is in such an advanced state that the freshly installed underfloor is vulnerable to wet weather. Some may say I was getting ahead of myself, but why not install a floor? It’s more comfortable to walk on than my crossmembers, and I needed it to weld up my rafters. One can’t possibly rely on a ladder which sits on unsteady or vulnerable surfaces.

So those naysayers can bite their tongue, because my house has a floor!!! So I had to hurry up and weld my rafters in place, so I can install a roof and walls, if only to protect my floor, right? Well, so I did, and I don’t mean to brag but my tiny house idea looks like a tiny house now.

It’s only been 10 days since I took my trailer to be weighed. In that short span I installed my floor, welded my studs and rafters (with a couple mistakes that now need to be cut and re-welded), and covered the whole thing up so the rain that finally graced these lands the other day did not do any lasting damage. I can’t take all the credit though. As the photos show, I’ve had amazing help. Thank you, Henry Edwards!
