I had lots of help today (my dad Larry, my uncle Pat, Brooke and Paige even helped a little) and put it to good use getting half of the right wall up. The Tumbleweed plans call for framing each of the 18′ long side walls as a single unit. That’s a lot of weight and bulk to get onto the trailer, let alone over the threaded rods, so I’m framing each side wall as two 9′ long modules, much easier to handle. I finished framing the wall by mid-afternoon and then my dad and daughter raised it on the trailer. It’s much easier to erect and plumb the walls with two helpers and an existing wall to tie into. You can now see the two kitchen window openings. The first floor will have a total of six windows to enjoy the view of wherever the tiny house ends up. Right now the view is of Santa Cruz, which isn’t bad at all.
