Tiny Free House Update – Roof Framing Begins

The weather was perfect for working outside this past weekend. It was cool, dry, and overcast. In fact I just beat the rain, which started as we headed home Sunday evening. I’m certain the perfect weather was a big part of why I was able to get as far as I did. I would have built more roof trusses but I ran out of long pallet wood.

It’s been a few months since I’ve been able to make time to work on the Tiny Free House and it feels great to have the walls up and the roof started. I think I have enough standard pallets stacked up for the siding and just need a few more long pallets to build the remaining roof trusses. This week I’ll be on the lookout for long pallets and some kind of metal roofing. I’m thinking a little outside the box for the roofing. I’d like to use some kind of recycled metal like #10 cans. But we’ll see what I find.

The field at the farm is plowed and ready for planting. The local farmer that leases and works the land is going to plant organic feed corn this year. He was planning on planting this weekend but probably held off due to the weather. It will be interesting to watch the corn grow as the tiny free house is completed.

I’ve posted a longer update on the Tiny Free House blog if you want to hear more about my free pallet house.
