Since starting to build my tiny house five months ago, I’ve done a pretty poor job of contributing to the Boneyard blog with photos and updates. So, in the hopes of getting up-to-speed on the Matchbox‘s build progress, here’s a quick run-through of the past few months of work:
- August: prepping the trailer/building a floor (+ video)
- September: the Matchbox gets walls! (+ video)
- November: insulation installation
And just last week, with the Matchbox’s insulation in, drywall up, and rain screen nearly complete, attention has turned to siding, for which I’ll be using the ancient Japanese technique of shou sugi ban to char the western red cedar boards, giving them an insect-, rot-, and fire-resistant benefit that also just looks really cool. Check out some of the photos below!
For full-length, rambling updates on the Matchbox, I’m also posting over at my personal blog, but I’ll be trying to post here more regularly moving forward.
