    Hey you two, that’s looking great. Yes the drip rail at 15 degrees will shed water fine. 10 degrees is the recommended minimum although some builders feel 8 degrees is an acceptable minimum. In windy / stormy situations, you’ll be glad to have the 15 degrees for shedding bulk water. I am concerned about your window flashings. By the looks of it you sealed all 4 sides of the windows, when proper building practice requires leaving the bottom unsealed to allow any entrained water and condensation a place to escape instead of remaining trapped behind your house wrap thus causing moisture damage.

    My wife and I have been intently following your progress. We have just finished drawing up the plans for our own version of a tiny house and finally found a suitable trailer. I have a few modifications to make to it (such as extending its length by 7 feet) and we will be able to start building.

    All the best,
    Stephan

    Thanks for the feedback. That is interesting what you were saying about the tape. I had been told that for caulking but not the tape. I guess I can only hope for the best now, lol.

    An extra 7 feet sounds sweet. I hope you guys have a much fun as us when you come to build.

    Hi Collin, the siding is looking great! Thanks for posting all of your videos, they’ve been educational for sure.

    May we have your blessing to link your blog to the one we’re keeping for our Tumbleweed build? We would like to put up a page for folks following our project to be able to check out other projects as well.

    Thanks and best of luck as you continue!

    I love your blog. Thanks for sharing. You inspire me…thanks again. Gentle winds to you.

  6. Enjoy your blog very much. I am building a shop (40X50) with a studio apartment on one end (11×40). Watching your videos and progress keeps my interest levels up. Keep up the great work!

    Love your site, and your Wee House. I hope you are going to publish inside pics. I have an old Smokehouse next to my house that I want to turn into a wee house for guests. Inside it measures 11 1/2′ wide X 14′ deep and has an attached side shed that measures 6’X 6′ (I will turn this into a bathroom – freeing up that space in the wee house.) Also it has an attic for a loft bedroom. I’m excited about the outcome, but need some ideas for a floorplan. It was originally a log building – now has vinyl siding. Cute – real cute. Anyway – thanks for sharing your project. Wish you both the best in all you do.
