Here Is A Better Look At How This Is Taking Form Now.  The Radiant Barrier House Wrap Adds An Extra Buffer To Gaining Heat From The Sun On The Outer Wall.  This With The Icynene Insulation Stop Nearly All Heat Penetration For 48 Hours Or More.

You can already see the Tiny Gypsy House begin to form

Here are some great progress shots of the Tiny Gypsy House for a late day start this fine Sunday in Manifestation Bay. Four guys from the Auxilium Project, a non-profit focusing on using Salvage as a means to empower people, came to help us today and learn how to teach this to others. We had some fun and they learned a lot with hands on experience they will never forget.

Here are the guys that made it happen today.  We did help of course.

The results look even better because we put the house wrap on today.

Notice how we doubled up the blocking so as to get a straight line to nail to.

So Wednesday or before I will add the walls for the top of the loft over the entry area on the front and be ready to work on the roof by the coming weekend. That will be a really fun project as we rarely build them and very few people out there have any experience to fall back on, but us.

Hope more of you can join us next week and be part of the siding, electrical, and the creation of the most spacious roof a Tiny Texas House can have.
