My goal by the fourth is to have all the remaining 6x6 beams up, the floor joists, and the cedar racking beams (Also a means to attach the 4x8 sheet plywood (Not using drywall) and a place to hang items from such as the tv or pictures) and a tarp roof over the entire structure. Also, have the solar array finished, panels attached, and wired.
I was staring at my partial structure this afternoon before getting rained out again. This Tiny Home looks huge. These 10 foot beams are sitting atop a foot of concrete pier. Leaving a 2 foot space beneath the floor joists. My eyes grow wide when I think of this structure going up a further 5 feet for the roof trusses.
The two foot raised floor serves two functions. One is that it keeps any future flooding being a non issue. The second being that I can use the space underneath the tiny house to create full length drawer lockers for tools or anything really. Basically leaving me the possibility of designing a tiny home with ample storage under the house itself.
How neat is that?
ps. I'm also still pondering creating a secure cat run underneath the house as well.
|Just to make sure you know, that I know, to level.|
|Yep. I'm single-handedly moving 6x6x8 (or 10) over my head and onto concrete posts.|
|Sitting atop my 10ft perch and YES, I see you!|
|This is where I sit when I want to sit.|
|Solar array near finished. 3 out of 6 beams/posts up for the Tiny house. Set 2 feet off the ground.|
