It was a beautiful day today. The overcast and rain over the last few days cleared, and the temps got into the 50's. I was able to spend a couple of hours blowing out water from the floor of the tiny house, and cleaning up all the tools that got a little wet while I was working yesterday. I dragged a burn barrel up from the house, and burned an ever-growing pile of scraps. I hung on to some, because tomorrow is supposed to be cold!
I finished framing all the walls, and sheathed the right side. I am leaving the front open for access before I sheath it in. I need to build some temporary stairs up to the porch at some time.
I did the calculations for determining the rafter lengths and angles. Happily, the template I made worked perfectly. I cut a couple, and clamped them up, just to get a feel for what the structure will look like, and to make sure that I don't exceed the 13' 6" maximum height that trailers are limited to travel. We'll have a few inches to spare.
Tomorrow, I'll spend a good amount of time cutting the other 28 rafters, and start installing them. I've got a family friend coming to work a little for me next week during his college holiday break. He will come at the perfect time - to install the sheathing on the roof. That's tough work trying to do it alone!
I've got to spend some time tomorrow mapping out a plan of attack through the end of the year. Framing can lead you to feel like you're making quick progress. I always tend to underestimate the amount of time it takes to do all the tedious interior work. Right now, I'm just going to revel in a good day's work, and a clean job site!
