Building Phase 2 – Framing

Framing : Part Two – Building Phase Three

September 15, 2015

So much has been happening around here, I can barely keep up! The tiny house has quickly transformed over the last few weeks.

Looking over everything and realizing we shouldn’t put it off any longer, Eric set out to level the trailer so the walls could go up.
