Two Day Tiny House Sips Build
I’m going to start with a photo dump of my two day build. I had the help of a few people each day, including Art Cormier (http://tinysiphouse.blogspot.com/), Meg Stephens (Lead Designer at Tumbleweed), and some of my other co-workers at Tumbleweed Tiny House Company.
We started work around 9am and left off around 7pm each day. It was cold, and the glue needed to be heated up using our car engine but we got through it.
The construction technology I used is called SIP Panels. You can learn more about those by googling it but in short it’s a sandwich of OSB sheathing and solid foam core that gives you an extremely strong and efficient house.
I am building a Cypress 20 with Dormers and a custom floor plan I made up with my brain juice.
In the upcoming posts I’ll go into more detail on what the process has been like, my history, why I made the choices I have so far and what kind of choices I’m still up in the air about. I’d like it if you comment, ask questions, and suggest topics you’d like my future posts to be about.
