Delivery of Wood For Tiny House Frame

Wood Delivery and First Cuts!

The wood for the frame has arrived. $644 in wood doesn’t look like much but this $644 is enough for the entire house and roof framing. Sheathing is going to be delivered in two weeks just before the walls go up. That’ll only be another $325. Then if I can still get the corrugated metal donated from a friend it’ll only be $1,000 or so to fully finish the exterior (I have windows and doors already). This will include the bits and pieces that make a house come together (tar paper, plywood clips, sealing tape, spray foam, flashings, roofing nails, screws, etc).  Where did I get my list?  I took a lot of notes from watching the Tiny Home Builder’s Video Tutorial series…yes I’ve said it before and will keep doing so, go subscribe to those videos!

What else did I learn from the Tiny House Tutorial series?  How to build a header.  Note that in the video below I mention 2×4’s only but I did modify the plans so that any span over 4′ will actually be Two 2×6’s with an OSB sandwiched in between and any span over 6 will be 2×8’s.
