Building Our Tiny House : Week 1

In case you’re new to our blog, you may not know about a project we’re working on before we leave on our around-the-world cycling expedition.  We’ve designed and are building a tiny house on a trailer that we plan on living in when we return from our travels.

Our home, when complete, will be ~180 square feet, and will include a kitchen, bathroom, living room, sleeping loft, and a small porch.  We’re using as much local and/or reclaimed lumber and non-toxic materials in the building process as possible, while also paying particular attention to energy efficiency.  You can read all of our Tiny House blog entries to date and subscribe to our Tiny House feed here.

Since the snow has melted and the rains subsided, we’ve had a chance to make some headway on the construction this past week.  The project is WAY behind schedule (was suppossed to be done last summer) and we don’t expect to complete it before leaving but we, at the very least, need to get the envelope up and the supply piles off our yard before we head out of town.  We’ll finish the interior work when we return to Vermont.

Check out what we’ve done so far:
