Photos taken in Cama Beach State Park on Camano Island in July 2016.
I thought I would take a break from the Tiny House building report, to celebrate summertime and the beauty of nature!

They have tiny cabins on the beach they rent out to tourists.
First Ryan put the Fascia boards on the ends of the rafters. Then he started putting on the rolls of roofing underlayment. Some people use felt or tar paper. I bought Liner Lock – 140 M a heavy duty premium grade roof underlayment with 100 % recyclable polypropylene water barrier. It is advertised to be 20 times stronger than #30 felt, and lighter weight. We will see if Ryan finds it easy to work with. He is securing it with roofing nails.
He will need to cut the 4 foot wide roll to fit on the lower roof.
After the plywood sheathing Ryan started cutting out the windows.
Today he is wrapping the house in water proof Tyvek house wrap. He is stapling it on the plywood and taping over the staples.
Today we have blue sky! It is a beautiful day in paradise!
Yesterday I bought 22 sheets of 1/2 inch plywood for sheathing the house. My son Paul helped me unload them. Today Ryan started with sheathing the roof.
The long rafters are 8 feet long. It was perfect for using 8 foot long pieces of 2 x 6 wood for these rafters, and then putting 8 foot long pieces of plywood on top.
Now Ryan has started sheathing the walls. I know 22 sheets is not enough to finish the job, but we will see how far he can get. Then we will know how much more plywood to buy.
Meanwhile, I have been using my new weed whacker to trim weeds on both sides of the LONG driveway.
And here is how my feet look afterwards!
Both ends are framed with a window in each loft.
The rafter on the lower side are going in.
Yesterday Ryan framed the clerestory windows. The Cider Box 24 foot plan called for 6 windows. But since we expanded the plan for my 26 foot trailer, we put in 7 clerestory windows. It looks great!
Today Ryan put up the rafters from the top of the clerestory windows to the tall side of the Tiny House. Hooray!
For the center of my Tiny Kitchen I ordered the Summit C301 AUTOGLASS: 30 inch wide All-In-One Combination Kitchen with two smooth top electric burners, a refrigerator-freezer, sink, and small cabinet.
On both sides of this appliance I will build counter space and cupboards. I have 6 feet of wall space to work with for my kitchen.
